We enjoyed sitting looking out over the water eating our fish and chips in a very relaxing atmosphere. The fish and chips were excellent, the price reasonable and the service was superb. We were there about 13:30, luncheon crowd had left so the place was quiet but there were still a number having lunch or maybe an early afternoon drink.

Six of us women friends went in December for our get-together and we enjoyed the service and great food. But, as the restaurant was not full, The servers filled tables that were close together. We were sat next to a party of ten men who were very noisy and we found it difficult to hear each other on our table.... More

I took a friend out for a birthday dinner for some seafood on a Friday evening. We took a table in the bar/lounge in the corner window as it seemed a nice location. It was not busy and at first service was attentive. But as the evening progressed and the bar area emptied, it service level dropped considerably to the... More

We had lunch and the chowder soup was excellent. The cup is almost as large as the bowl. Enjoyed the tuna tacos. Very quiet for a week day lunch time. Would like to try it for dinner.

We recently ate there while staying at the Westin - it came recommended by our valet who gave us a coupon for a free appetizer! Dinner was great, very good service. We would definitely go back!

The location near the airport is nice enough and we found the service to be good, but the food was just average. Not bad, but not especially great either. For the price you are paying you'd hope for a fresher meal.

I was the lone person at the bar so service was great. Ryan (bartender) was personable, had a great command of the local beers and menu. He was actually a good ambassador for Vancouver. I did not find the prices out of line with similar seafood restaurants as some of the reviews have stated. I had the Sockeye salmon burger... More

Ate here with some friends on Friday evening. First of all, I believe the gift card they sell at Costco is somewhat misleading, as there are a number of requirements you have to follow in order to use it. The money you save you buying it, ($20.01), is gone because you cannot use it with specials, or discounted meals, it... More
