I enjoyed a perfectly cooked Halibut, with fresh and well seasoned vegetables. Only reason I didn't rate with a 5 star is for the lack of good coffee, I'm a coffee snub and consider that every restaurant should have a decent espresso available. Excellent food, if you expect a coffee you will ve dissapointed.

Great spot on the river especially when the sun is out. Even better watching the sun go down from the deck. Good selection of beers, wines and seafood. I'm not the best when it comes to oysters but my wife liked the selection. Staff helpful and very, very friendly

The restaurant had standard decor. It was slightly noisy but we didn't mind it as it was my sister's birthday. We were still able to talk at the table and understand each other. The food was above average. They had the standard appetizers and mains. I had the fish and chips, which was nicely done - very crisp and tasty.... More

Ate here the night before I flew out of YVR. the food was very good though my sister's Halibut was undercooked (raw in the middle). The waitress was most apologetic and another meal was prepared immediately. I had a hard time finishing my meal (salmon with fingerling potatoes) couldn't even fit in an ice cream on the way back to... More

This dockside spot is my pick for best eats in Steveston. Casual, friendly and great service. The food is good. Lobster doughnuts are amazing - like timbits but with blue cheese and lobster stuffing. Tataki tuna salad was good, very fresh tuna and greens, nicely dressed. Best seats are along the window when available, with heaters and blankets available if... More
