Just ate at the wharf and the halibut was amazing!! The general atmosphere is really lacking though. It's like your stuck in a time warp from the 80's. Sitting at the table there was no music playing and it seemed like the super open floor plan allowed for almost no privacy. We just felt out of place and maybe needed... More

As always the Wharf served up an outstanding traditional fish and chips fine feast. Been eating there off and on over 40 years and have never been disappointed. Keep up the fine tradition for years to come

I have never felt such discrmination before in my life. I am a native woman and my husband is a caucasion man. We went to the Wharf restaurant on Saturday October 8th 2016 to supposedly have a nice dinner. A young blond pony tailed waitress met us when we went in. I do not know her name but she was... More

Ate there for a second time to try it again, still think its quite expensive for what you get and when you order fish and chips and have to order coleslaw and a roll separately when a two piece meal cost $20 is a bad sign in my opinion. 40 dollars for a two piece and a one piece meal,... More

Back when I was a child I remember going to the Wharf in the Zellers plaza, cramming into a small restaurant, and loving every minute of the experience. The Wharf has moved around in the last decade and landed in a great location. Even though the staff may have changed the food has not. Two piece fish and chips are... More

Very expensive, definitely not worth the value. The fish pieces have gotten smaller in the past few years and the price has sky rocketed. It was also very very greasy the last time we got it (grease dripping from it). If it hadn't been so greasy I wouldn't have minded the price so much.

I felt like the food was expensive but it was tasty. Lunch for 3 people topped out at 35.00 and change on a take out order where no beverages are purchased.

I liked the fresh buns. Coleslaw was good. I liked the sweet potato fries. I had my halibut lightly battered and my husband had one with the regular and the extra. We both liked lightly battered.
