This place has been our "go to" for fish & chips for many years but our most recent visit [ tonight] has us rethinking that plan and we will now be looking for a new place to go. We had two 2 pce meals; one...with haddock and the other with cod; In general the fish was overcooked with bits that were so crunchy that we couldn't eat it...... 3 of the 4 pieces of fish had parts that only had 'overcooked' batter and no fish. The fries [chips] were brutal...I once thought that there was no such thing as "bad fries" but these guys have changed that opinion as well....they were tough and chewy; maybe originally cooked hours ago??. Their coleslaw and tartare sauce remains very tasty and much better than most other fish & chip places that we've eaten at. Unfortunately we were too disappointed during this visit to give them another try!...now we are searching for a new "fish & chip" place in the Kelowna areaMore

We have used Buy The Sea many times in the past, best Fish and Chips! BUT, called to place an order....what a farce, could not understand the operator, 3 times tried to explain a simple order of 2 meals! Went to pick order up, only...1 meal was ready, was told another meal would be done right away....Waited for 10 minutes, finally ready. On the way home opened the top meal.......STONE COLD!!. So, the original meal was just put to the side while the other was being prepared.....Seriously......Re-Do the WHOLE order. For just under $38 WILL NOT BE BACK!More

This used to be the best fish and chips in the valley. I suspect this business has been sold. Over fried previously frozen cod with over fried chips. Coleslaw was good though. We always travelled over from Kelowna when we had the fish and chip...(or prawns and chip) craving. So disappointed. Will not be back.More

Just drive by the sea. Horrible smoked salmon. It used to be what I would drive across the city for, not anymore. Store bought, soaked in fake smoke taste and mushy. Two staff members lied to me and said it was still coming from the...mainland, BS. Better off shopping at the grocery store. So disappointed, miss the old owner. He actually cared about fresh products.More

This place never disappoints, we had the fish and slaw. The tarter sauce was very good too. We live in ellison and have no problem with driving that far for quality.

Excellent as always. Fresh fish, no fishy smell when you walk in, great friendly staff. Super takeout menu. Best place to buy fresh or frozen fish.

Always fresh fish, prices comparable to large grocery outlets. Fantastic lunch special everyday. Great for couples or take your kids out for lunch during their school lunch break. Service is quick and priced right for a family budget.

Only place I will buy fish, mussels etc. Product is always fresh and they even take orders for fresh pickerel. Wonderful store and staff are so helpful, even suggesting how to prepare certain product. They also have great fish & chips.

Nothing matches the old fish n chips deep fried in beef drippings (tallow) but this comes close. Nice light batter and good portions of haddock steamed to perfection. On your way out the door; try some candied salmon for dessert or pick up a few...Alaskan crab legs to cook at home.More

We were just driving through West Kelowna, looking for “something different,” other that the usual fast food outlets. We saw the shop off the highway and went over there and went in. Nice friendly, attentive staff, eager to please! We ordered the halibut and chips....They came steaming hot! Tasted very good and the portions were definitely big enough!More

We were 2 couples having lunch there today. We each shared a 2 piece fish and chip dinner. One cod and one haddock. The haddock was cocked to perfection and very tasty. The cod unfortunately was over cooked. The lady who served us was so...cheerful and friendly. Would definitely recommend this place.More
