Our friends are from Victoria, BC. They gave Steamers the Canadian seal of approval. I love the halibut and chips. Since their remodel the restaurant is more open and easier to navigate. We usually run into someone we know. Staff is very friendly, food is...More

Clam chowder was awesome. Kids’ meals are decent sized and include drinks. It’s a sweet little place with big windows and a friendly staff.

With lots of options on the menu, we enjoyed fish tacos, coconut shrimp, fish and chips and a clam pasta. Everything was delicious. Great view of the water. Located right on the railway tracks, the noisy train was actually a fun attraction for the kids!

Beautiful location, great deck, really, really good service, and excellent food. The trains that fly by, again and again, and again add to the specialness of the experience. We had the halibut fish and chips- HUGE pieces of halibut; clam chowder- OK, mussels- really good,...More

Stopped for a quick dinner with a view of the bay. A little bit of initial confusion as you order and pay when you arrive, then find seating. It’s next to the train tracks so can be a little loud but we found it part...More

Yes. Good gluten free options, BUT you won't be able to have anything fried. Grilled fish with fresh veggies is delicious. They also have fantastic salads. You probably can't have anything fried because of the coatings... More
