Fish and chips on the pier means just that freshly made fish and home cut chips not cold fish and factory made bagged frozen french fries. A long way to go and cutting corners is not one of them.

We spent $250 including tip for dinner for 7 including a $30 bottle of white wine, 2 kids' menus, just one appetizer for everyone and no desserts. Main entree dishes are about $30 piece. Food quality is just average, there is nothing really to it. I ordered the salmon and it was overcooked - very close to being burned. Waiter really tried to do his best but level of service provided is more like an IHOP so get there loaded with patience. If it wasn't because of the view I would have given this place just two stars. I can tell everyone at the restaurant were tourists, which is a clear sign that locals avoid the place. We went in knowing the reviews were not great but everything else was already full by the time we got there.

We stopped here for lunch simply because of the location. Middle of summer on a beautiful day this location is great. The food was good but not great value, the portion size on the Caesar salad was on the small size, the mussles were delicious but they were tiny, the oysters and crab cakes were nice.
I would eat here again but with so many other choices - I think I would try another restaurant.
The service was good and the food arrived in a reasonable time.

At the end of a long bike ride, we were delighted by our reward- very kind and attentive staff, fabulous dockside location and delicious food. Will definitely go back.

It is rare to experience a perfect lunch experience but we had it today. Sitting in the sunshine, looking toward the islands and enjoying the warm mixed seafood salad and the hot pot.

I last had this salad twice in San Fransisco, the first time they knocked it out of the park and the second time years later it wasn't as memorable. Tried it here and it was plentiful, calamari in strips, shrimp, scallops, mussels and clams in a warm lemony dill vinaigrette over mixed greens. Don't think I could have made it for the price I payed.

Hubby ordered the tomatoe basil hot pot with 2 large pieces of sockeye salmon, clams, and mussels and had to order extra bread because he wanted every last drop of sauce. It also was full of vegetables and the ultimate compliment he could give - it was the best seafood soup he had eaten in his life.

Other reviews indicated poor service however it was timely, friendly and our waitress was attentive. She brought a paper soup bowl full of water for our dog without being asked.

There was no issues at all for anyone around us.

Having been eating out for two straight weeks and can easily say best choice yet. Can't wait to come back.

Gluten free options, vegetarian options, something for the meat lovers. Pescatarians embrace this redtaurant!
