I would eat here every meal and every day of the week it I could! Fresh, large portions, very flavorful, and reasonably priced! Staff was not friendly but it could have been because they were working so fast and furiously to help all of their...customers.More

This spot is great for a casual lunch or dinner. Outside seating, some of it covered. The food is great. My husband had fish and chips and liked it very much. I had grilled salmon and salad. The fish was grilled to perfection, greens very...fresh and plentiful.More

Very scenic location. Counter service only, so sometimes there is a wait, but no worries, the food is worth it. My favourite is the CodDog, but today I went with a tacone. Delicious!!

Down below Wharf St., right on a harbour dock, sits a ship container that is home to fine cuisine. No fancy table cloths are found here but there are stools, benches, counters where you can sit and watch planes and boats come and go. The...seafood is first rate in taste and design, and a popular favourite (often the line-up is long). Pay parking is available on both sides of the dock down ramps accessed as you travel south only on Wharf.More

Last time we were in Victoria we enjoyed this place, now they have stools, but the food is still awesome. The fish and chips is very big. We bought an extra piece of fish and shared all those fries. They had deep fried oyster tacos...as a daily special so how could I say no? Simply great food!More

Our driver on the hop on hop off bus recommended this little gem and he wasn’t wrong when he said it’s great food and great value which is why there are always lots of people there. But our favourite was the seafood chowder…it was to...die for, so much so that out of the 5 days we spent in Victoria we went there three times for chowder as well as fish and chips, fish taco and cod dog.More

Sooo good! Best fish and chips I’ve EVER had. Seriously. You have to get the get the halibut. It’s juicy, it’s crispy. It’s everything. My mother in law told me this was the best fish and chips she’s ever had when she was on her...honeymoon 27 years ago. The fact that it’s still held up today is all you need to know.More

This is like truck food with outdoor seating on the wharf in downtown Victoria. The grilled salmon is excellent. It can be busy so expect to wait a bit.

Great fresh food and excellent service. We had the cod dog and the grilled salmon. All tasty and made to order. Relaxing place to sit, eat and watch the world go by. Would highly recommend and plan to go back.

We went twice… guess that says enough! Waiting for an hour? Yep, part of the show. Fish and chips? Yes, that good. Poutine with fish? Delicious. The chowder was perhaps a bit of a let down, but only because the expectations were so high… will...for sure stand in line again!More

Great fish and chips- long line up. Great view. Kinda expensive but delicious! If you are allergic to wasps be careful. There were lots of wasps around our feet feasting on the bits of dropped food on the pier.
