If you're doing the Willingdon Trail and want a simple meal afterwards, this is hard to beat. Picnic tables and a view of the beach. We shared a two piece fish 'n' chips - it came with a mountain of fries and two medium pieces of fish in a very good, light batter.

Expensive. I used to love going here. Over the years it got more and more pricey. now I avoid it. It is conveniently located if you are taking a stroll along Willington beach. It is open and closed at strange times. Sometimes not open at all.

Stopped here after walking the Willingdon Beach Trail for fish and chips. Very generous portion of great food. Great selection of hard ice creams and flavour samples were provided by a very pleasant woman. I ended up with a soft ice cream only because I can't resist chocolate malt! It's a convenient stop right on the road out to Lund... More

Stopped here for an early lunch of cod and chips and ice cream. All for $13 and was enough for 2. Fabulously helpful staff.

The Beach Hut has fantastic workers and their Halibut and Chips has become a family favourite. We now ensure our week ends with this delicious meal! Highly recommended.

I really have only experienced the ice cream at this spot although I see many people ordering fish and chips, and other items. The ice cream is one of the best values in town. Large scoops, lots of them, and a super low price. Can't drive past there especially with my grandchildren in the summer without stopping and getting ice... More

terrible food - maybe ok for an ice cream or a drink, but avoid the fish and chips and burgers. The chicken burger i ordered was probably the worst I have ever had. Inedible. Not that cheap either, for a deep fried hockey puck on a stale bun. The fish and chips were mystery lumps in thick nasty batter.

Stale buns - we buy our buns and produce fresh every morning, guaranteed. Lumpy fish and chips - for our fresh battered cod and halibut, we make a light tempura style batter that we spice with pepper, garlic, paprika and dill. Hockey puck chicken burgers - we use a moist, crumb breaded chicken breast fillet. We all had one today... More

We set out to have fish and chips in Powell River and found the Beach Hut. They also had poutine on the menu and since we have been living in Costa Rica for 12 years we couldn't resist. The poutine was good... not great but much better than many and the fish and chips were very good but I would... More

I enjoy the poutine very filling and the fries are just yummy.. There are so great eats there and they have some great Popsicles there, but the best ice cream is across the road at the mini golf place.
