Not enough can be said about this location. It is located right on the docks, but the food is fantastic. The fish, from cod to salmon is awesome. Would highly recommend you eat here.

They served nice fish and chips. Properly cooked and a generous portion of halibut for the price. Service was nice and friendly. The setting is basic. You are on bench seats at picnic tables. A decent choice if you are in the port area.

Visited Trollers for lunch May 2018 and had the halibut and chips. The fish was way too greasy, we couldn’t even finish our meals. Not worth the price. Such a great location, but unfortunately we left disappointed.

Great atmosphere and great food. Down on the waterfront on a floating restaurant with boats coming and going, light airplanes carrying passengers in and out of Nanaimo, the perfect way to enjoy a good feed of fish and chips.
