Always a part of our waterfront experience (see that review from us), we never miss out on making a delicious fresh fish meal from here part of our many visits to the waterfront, especially when we have out of town visitors. Dog friendly, rustic but...More

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.

Beautiful location, but eat out or take out only. Very limited seating and difficult to enjoy when chasing flies away all the time. Fish & Chips served in plastic, not very sturdy baskets lined with grease proof paper. Plastic knives and forks just don't really...More

food was much better than last time as we didn't hit it at a rush hour. It was a beautiful day and our Alberta visitors really enjoyed the setting.
