I saw the salmon chowder on the menu, so this my choice of food stands. I had a small bowl, but wished I had a bigger one. it was so good. and the candied salmon on the top was a delicious touch. I also had a cod taco, it was really good too, it had a nice cilantro cream sauce.... More

An outdoor fish stop at the Fisherman's Wharf that offered a dedicated fryer for the seriously gluten-free, with sorghum batter, delicious coleslaw and piping hot fries. They have other food ----my kids loved their "regular" fish and chips too--but the highlight for me was gluten-free fish since it's a rare, rare find. I chose halibut, and if I get back... More

It was the first place open on the Wharf. The fish tacos and oyster tacos were very good! I would pass on the poutines. Serving was huge, but the flavor was average. I enjoyed the oyster stew as well.

Were sort of disappointed that we could not have the swimming scallops but it was explained that they are hopefully more available in the summer. Unfortunately we will not be here in the summer. I placed 2 orders for cod n chips, I was handed a vibrator notifier. This is on a pier on the water, lots of interesting things... More

This restaurant is located on the wharf, just next to the location were (6) seals & two otters put on a great little show for the spectators. We paid a small fee for six pieces of fresh fish, which we purchased, so we can feed the seals. The other food options at this restaurant is worth the experience.

It has a nice view there. Also there're many seals and many people in fisherman's warft. The place is good to walk around. I ate pacific cod(대구살) in The Fish Store. It was good. It's familar with Koreans taste called 생선전. Maybe Korans will be like it. The menu is simple, just different kinda fishes. It looks expensive a little... More

My friends and I came for late lunch, we shared the west coast combo (deep fried salmon and cod) and the salmon chowder. I personally like the salmon chowder better, the fish was not as fresh as I thought it would be. The staff were friendly.

Okay but definitely not as good as Red Fish Blue Fish. The fish wasn't as fresh as the other place, obviously been frozen. As a result, the batter doesn't stick to the fish. The staff were all very friendly, and the harbor seals were super cute!

I have eaten all over this planet.....and as 2014 Canadian Chef of the Year.....this could easily have been the best Sri Lankan Malu I have had outside of Asia. Well Done!
