We were looking forward to lunch here but we left rather disappointed. When standing in a long line, we waited ever so patiently as the guy taking orders took at least 10 minutes to count, and wrap, and safely put the money in the tip...More

Don't let the long line scare you off. The fish is cooked to a golden perfection. I recommend the halibut and chips.

We visited Red Fish,Blue fish for lunch on a family vacation to Victoria. The food was very good, except the Salmon ordered was over cooked and quite dry. We had the halibut and cod fish and chips, both equally good. One portion of fish is...More

Chowder was awesome! Had the cod and it was really good too. Coleslaw could use some love to be at the same quality as the rest of the food.

Stood in line for 30/40 minutes at least and the food proved to be worth the wait and hunger, the tacos are amazing (I had salmon) and the fish and chips were crispy and delicious. Would stand in line all over again.

One of the best food trucks in town, Red Fish Blue Fish is not a truck but rather a shipping container repurposed for fast food--the fish fish and chips in town. It's located along the wharf at Ship's Point. It's become so popular, however, that...More

Long wait but the halibut was worth it. Very friendly staff with a pride in their products. The cod was good and single piece is more than enough

Get ready for queuing. Is it worth? Yes and no. It is not the best fish and chips but the food is just right. I ordered the grilled tuna with honey glaze and the fish was quite raw, cold and no sign of honey. The...More

This place is more of a fast-food take-out joint. I would recommend only for lunch and really only on a sunny day!

Red Fish is located just below Warf Street, just beyond the seaplane terminal. If you are coming in from a cruise ship, the cruise busses drop you off on Government street and so it is just one block over (look for the... More

I concur - there is no reserved seating.. in fact, you might have problems finding seating for your group as there may not be that many seats all together. Also, I think they're closed for the season already, so if you go... More
