My friend and I agreed to meet for lunch at the Fisherman's Boot. This cafe is really a dive, that being said one certainly can't complain about the prices. I opted for the homeade soup and sandwich for under $6.00.............how cheap is that?

We went for breakfast a couple times last week.
Very inexpensive and well prepared breakfast.
Nice to see that not all the diners have disappeared.
If you live in Richmond this is a hidden gem.

This is an exceptional greasy spoon/diner run by a lovely lady named Penny. Penny will berate you, like your a family member, if you don't finish your meal, so be careful how much you order. The portions are large and the prices are very reasonable. Located at the bottom of Trite Street in the marina, regular customers include local fishermen, and people from the
community.

This restaurant is located at the end of Trites Road inside the gated marine complex. We arrived around 11:30 AM on this wet Thursday afternoon to avoid the lunch hour rush and there were a few people having coffee. Most, if not all, of the customers were local workers or residents.

The only reason we came to the restaurant was because the person we came with raved (maybe raved is a little too strong a description) about the Thursday fish and chips special for $7.95.

My spouse and I ordered the following to share:
• Fish and chips (2 pieces) with coleslaw ($7.95; regular price $8.95)
• Clubhouse on rye bread with fries ($7)

The self-serve coffee was $1.50 with refills with a choice of Van Houtte house blend, dark roast, Columbian and French Roast

The clubhouse was okay. You can’t go wrong with bacon, cheese, lettuce, mayo, tomato and turkey. The turkey was the processed turkey meat (thin sliced sandwich style)

The fries were warm and there wasn’t that much of it. The battered fish was okay but lacked seasoning (and no lemon wedge!). The coleslaw and tartar sauce were okay.

Our friends ordered the fish and chips and mushroom burger ($7). This time they were disappointed in the size of the fish; much smaller pieces than the last time they came.

The total bill for the four of us before tips came to $31.40 (taxes included in menu prices).

There is very little service at this restaurant – help yourself to water (which came in a used 4 litre plastic milk jug) and place your order at the cashier. The server brought our food in a timely manner.

For a “greasy spoon”, the food was passable and the prices were decent.
Overall, I would rate the food taste/experience at 2.75 out of 5; it’s okay.

Notes and Tips:
• My spouse originally wanted to have liver and onions but it was not available because it was sold out since it was the Wednesday special.
• Cash only
• Typical diner / cafe menu. See photos.
• Restaurant seating with 3 booths, tables and bankettes for approximately 34 people
• Washrooms are outside in a separate building (as far as I could tell)
• Trites Road is located on the Eastern edge of Steveston Village very close to Britannia Shipyards; approximately ¼ mile away. Drive past the chain link and you’ll see the restaurant in the building facing you.
• Lots of parking. If the lot is full there is plenty of street parking outside the gate.
• My favourite place for fish and chips in the Steveston area is still the Steveston Café in the Village.
