No oysters! There was something going around so no oysters being harvested. We had been here before and it was great but were disappointed this time... not their fault though...

On a winter storm watching trip, we stopped for lunch at The Fish Store and Oyster Bar. The little shop has a very interesting decor and is definitely upscale. We started with a couple of oyster dishes--the El Capitan and Oysters Kilpatrick--WOW. The chef came up with dishes and they are stunningly good. Next, the Firecracker Shrimp which is just... More

You can go for the oysters or you can go for the chowder...I went for their amazing seafood chowder. Each bowl is custom made so if you have any allergies, let them know and they'll accommodate if they can. Grab a beer from the locally made Tofino Brewing Company and you're in for a treat. Seating space is limited, service... More

Simple restaurant yet perfect for oysters, chowder and west coast casual atmosphere. Great value and friendly staff, great service. Seafood chowder was extraordinary, the spicy squid dish was wonderful!

Great spot to enjoy "buck a shuck" from 4-6pm. They also offer fish for purchase to take home (to cottage) as well. Staff were very knowledgeable, helpful & friendly!

Stopped in to dry off from the rain and happened to be in time for buck a shuck! We had local beer and oysters so fresh you could still taste the ocean in them. Best oysters I've ever had! Super friendly staff recommended other places for us to try as well. Not to be missed!

The dictionary definition of “Brasserie” is an unpretentious restaurant, or the like, that serves drinks, especially beer, wine, and simple or hearty food. Add deliciously fresh oysters and mouth-watering seafood creations to this definition and you have “The Fish Store and Oyster Bar” of Tofino. The restaurant’s location is practical and centrally located in the heart of Tofino. Its appearance... More
