Good food, but nothing makes it stand out. I had the halibut fish and chips and very much enjoyed them. The portion size was fair, but could have had a bit more slaw and a little less chips. Tartar sauce was unique and very tasty....More

What can I say that hasn't been said already? We tried the 2 pc cod and chips. Lightly battered fish, crispy salted fries, coleslaw and tasty tartar sauce. Perfect portions, served piping hot!

I had an amazing Tuna Poke' that was just loaded with tuna marinated in a great spicy sauce. I would totally get it again the next time I am back in Victoria. My daughter got fish and chips and said it was great.

The Buck a Shuck oysters are a wonderful option on a sunny afternoon - though the higher priced ones taste a little better I think. But don't forget to try the seafood chowder - it is just fabulous!

Yes, there are picnic tables. Some are covered with tent tops on poles (open sides), worth the trip if you bundle up - they're amazing!
