Bob's is certainly a good place to get fish and chips, but for me it did not live up to the hype. I found the pieces smaller than I'd like, and they didn't have a gluten-free option which other fish and chip places in Rupert have. Go for the experience for sure, just don't expect to get blown away.

In summer, Bob's cooks up the best fresh halibut and chips. Not fancy by ny means but a great spot to sit and watch the bald eagles flying overhead and watch the world go by.

This seasonal shop has the best fish and chips in town. For a fishing town of Prince Rupert there is lots of competition.

The staff was excellent in describing the different fish options! We met a couple of really amazing locals here who gave us some ideas of things to see. Food was fresh and AMAZING! Sitting on the outside picnic tables we had a great view of the marina and harbour. Was pretty cool to see the boats and ships!

Stopped here at 5am. Were able to get our licences for the day. Grabbed a coffee and a quick chat with the gal that was there. Lots of actions of early in the morning. Lots of stuff in the little shack from souvenirs, tackle and snacks.

The fish and chips were great we had both the halibut and cod. It is expensive. I skipped the chips and just snacked on my kids and ordered two pieces of fish. The cook knows what she is doing. It was great to see kids come down and get lunch riding their bikes. There is no fast food in town... More

I've been travelling for four months through the interior of Canada and was dying to get to the coast to see the sea and get some seafood. Bob's hit the spot, just the best halibut and chips plus outdoor seating where you can watch comings and goings in the harbour. Just braw!

Good food and good service. Great for those who are on the go or would like to have a bite to eat near the docks. A great spot to watch the sunset or if you're looking to see eagles.

After reading all the reviews made it a place we had to visit but we're disappointed. Not sure if it was just a day when so few people came so oil etc. Not hot but the fish batter was very oil and I had a long hair in mine. Yes I guess I could have fussed but didn't. It probably... More
