the place is always hopping. The food is pretty darn good and they have a good system for moving people along. Loved the sea food stew and the in season halibut. I don't know if we'll go back with the lines so long and so...More

We were there on a lovely day so the fact that there is no indoor seating wasn't a problem for us. We enjoyed sitting outside with a view of the water. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. A long wait but worth it.

Good fish and chips. Batter was nice, chips were tasty, staff was friendly. Worth a stop if you're in the area but I'm not sure it's worth going out of your way for, unless you really love fish and chips....

So glad we heard about "go fish" from our hotel concierge. Don't miss it! It's right on fisherman's wharf off of Granville Island. Fresh fish just caught and brought in by the locals. I had a salmon salad and my sister had fish and chips....More

I've walked/biked along the sea wall many times and had never noticed that this place existed. I assumed lines were for fresh fish off the boats. We joined the line for lunch and the wait was maybe 20-30 minutes. Not entirely sure since we were...More

The only thing that is very bad is that long line. Sometimes I have to wait 30-40min for my order. Other then that the food is unreal. Everything is good.. Best fish and chips I ever had. Fresh cut fries are crazy delicious. Sitting by...More

Ordered the 3 Oysters plus fries combo and got three giant oysters - all three were filled with a ton of oyster feces, absolutely disgusting, oysters should have been cleaned before being deep fried.

This place is quite famous in Vancouver. I was surprised by the amount of people waiting in line to make their orders. There was even people in good suits waiting in line. After around 25 minutes in line, I was not disappointed at all. The...More

Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh

WOW! I am surprised to hear that the service was rated as poor. I have only been three times but I live here and it's absolutely great food. It's basically a take-out wagon and they have a 45-60 minute line-up at peak times... More
