I found this place on trip advisor and if had good ratings, tried to go after New Years and it was closed. Decided to give it another try and it was well worth it. The fish was excellent, very lightly battered. Great service located in a residential area and very busy which is a good sign. If you are looking... More

The halibut did not measure up to competitor Barb's Place. The fish portion is thinner and not as moist. The batter is ok but not special. The coleslaw is very good. The fries were good. The staff is wonderful. The retro atmosphere is nostalgic. Nice place to visit.

Super friendly staff and classic Fi and Chi style restaurant. Run and operated by the owner for over 20 years! Great, fresh made fish each day. Gluten free, grilled options.

Excellent food and friendly staff. I dont have to go all the way downtown. Easy parking. Friend ask me where I want to celebrate my birthday. I always pick this one. Small, and simple restaurant but excellent food!

We first ate at Haultain Fish and Chips several years ago on the recommendation of a local. My husband and I returned recently and enjoyed it just as much as on our first visit. The place was packed as usual. No surprise as their fish and chips are delicious. I usually take advantage of the availability of fresh fish and... More

This place was recommended to us when we were shopping in Chemainus, and as I *love* me some fish and chips, I decided to check it out. It's a very unassuming little shop nestled in a small, residential strip mall. A 'blink and you'll miss it' type establishment. Is it fancy? Nope. It's also pretty-small. But it was amazing. 2...

Fresh cut fries! YUM! Delicious fish batter. In such an unexpected location. Not downtown, but, in a residential neighbourhood on Haultain and Empire Streets. Our friends from out of town were so impressed with the freshness of the fish and chips. Not greasy. Can't be beat. Don't expect fine dining decor, a reviewer said it was dumpy, (harsh) this is...

The food was quite good, although a bit pricey, much exceeding my expectations considering how small and "dumpy" the establishment appears. The waitress was kind and funny, she had spilt one of our drinks but it was promptly dealt with. Over all everything was good and I was looking forward to eat here again... until we got up to leave.... More

If you want fast service it is ok. I prefer to take a bit of time and not get greasy fish and chips. 850 for a piece of halibut that was not very big seemed like a lot. Chips 400 the restaurant has been there a long time and they have kept it up......but it is not comfortable to sit... More

This is a unique business. It is like the fish and chip shops of the 1950's. Great atmosphere and a local tradition. Excellent food and very reasonable prices for Halibut.
