The food is OK (not bad). Location is good. Inside decor is pleasant. but nothing special. Sablefish is good, but seafood paella is mediocre.

From the view to the food, I loved my dinner here. Drinks were well thought out as well. The entire meal was an excellent experience, even with a full house.

If you enjoy a good burger this one is not to be missed. A nice seaside venue, casually decorated and good service, made for a great evening.

My bride and I stopped in here for lunch, last Friday. We love the location, overlooking the real fishermans wharf, where you can walk the dock and actually buy a fresh caught fish. We picked this place out of 3 or 4 on the water; and this restaurant was out over the water, and looked authentic. Decor is faux original,... More

4 of us had lunch there on Monday Nov 7, 2016. It was a little dreary so the restaurant was sparsely occupied. The restaurant serves mostly seafood. We had the house whites ( from BC) and it was good. The 4 of us had 3 dishes. Mussels with curry sauce with bread (recommended) ; Clams in white wine sauce with... More

We stop by for lunch on our way through Richmond and were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The staff were absolutely efficient and pleasant to deal with the fish and chips were very good and the ambiance of the restaurant is very relaxing and calming. I would definitely recommend eating here while you're in Richmond

Had family visiting from England so I brought them to steveston for lunch. Nothing on the menu stood out for me. The service was decent but for the price we paid, I expected a better experience for my guests.

Best bar service from a real hospitality professional. John guided me through a memorable Friday sundown with house wine, oysters and specially prepared pan fried fish and chips. Could not want a better ending to a great trip to Richmond , BC. Perfect!
