Best halibut fish and chips ever! Owner of the Salmon Shack also owns the fish canneries, so it's a cinch to be the best. Would go back in a heartbeat. Fresh, light batter and excellent fish.

The halibut and salmon are pretty good. The deep fry is good because they use panko instead if batter!! It's good!

We had amazing food from this little unassuming food trailer. Extremely fresh salmon and halibut. The rockfish sandwich is a rock star. The service and cleanliness was top notch. We ate here several times in a few days. Don't pass this place up.

We were recommended Al's Salmon shack from our RV park, and unfortunately it was closed that night. We had some for lunch the next day, and although not cheap, it was really good. It seems to be only open for lunch at the moment.
