Had an awesome dinner here. Halibut and chips and halibut taco. The Halibot is delicious served with a great tangy/lime coleslaw. Halibut taco also delicious with a tasty slaw. Will definitely eat here again.

Enjoyed $1 oysters at fisherman's wharf between 4 and 5pm. Served with lemon, hot sauce and sauces extra but worth it. Watch out for hungry seals below service deck. Note you cannot feed seals but they are usually present during bucj a shuck special time.

I was hoping to visit Barb's but it was closed so I tried The Fish Store. Staff was friendly enough but the fish and chips were soggy and the fish was flavourless and dry. Not worth the beautiful location.

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!
