We went in search of great seafood on a miserable rainy day. The selection of seafood was great and the staff were very helpful. They gave us a bag of scraps to feed the sea lions at Fisherman's Wharf when we mentioned we were walking that way.

This fish shop and kiosk is a dhort walk from Fishermans Wharf and well worth the visit. In addition to a trailer/ kiosk outside the main store where you can get a variety of fish-and-chip dishes, its worth going into the stire to discover the array of products. Take home a tin ( or several) of their smoked tuns. To die for..you will never think of a tuna sandwich the same way again.never

Needed a warm lunch after watching the Princess and Prince William at Ogden Point. It was cold and raining, and the seafood chowder hit the spot. The fries were also good and not greasy. The coleslaw was not to my liking, but everyone else liked it. It was aa take and run trailer.

This place is across the street from where we catch the 31 bus, so when the lousy weather dictated we not go out, we ordered from here.

Great choice. Good food, good ingredients. The oyster tacos (not that I have ever ordered them elsewhere) were lovely. My wife's halibut burger tasted great she said, but with the bun being harder than the fish, it tended to disintegrate as she bit into it. The sweet potato fries were as good as fries get. The coleslaw was excellent: a large serving with an array of julienned veggies, nice spices, and just enough dressing to keep them modestly moist.

They told me 20 minutes on the phone, and they were just finishing it as I arrived, so things were still hot and tasty after my five minute walk back to our timeshare.

I ordered the clam chowder and they were "out". So, I had haddock fish and sweet potato fries. Well....the fish was huge and the batter was crispy and light. Yum! And the sweet potato fries were the best that I have ever had! The cole slaw....not so much. The small cup was about 1/2 filled and had very heavy mayonnaise. We arrived at 4 PM, so service was fast, no line. So.....we sat down on their benches and the cool breeze blew the napkins away and then we fought off the yellow jackets. So, on the fish and sweet potato chips, they get a 5+, however, the cole slaw and inability to actually eat/enjoy the food greatly lowers the score. So, I recommend that you go early on a very sunny, non-windy non-yellow jacket day and enjoy!
