I've have Fish and Chips all over the world. The Halibut and Chips that I've had at the Fisherman's Wharf Fish Store beats anything I've tasted previoulsy.

We stopped by a few times to eat here. Our favourites were the 3 way salmon chowder, and their salads. The food was always delicious.

Is all seating outdoors? We're heading down in mid October and looking for great places to put in the list for dinner. Too chilly to sit outdoors tho.

Yes, there are picnic tables. Some are covered with tent tops on poles (open sides), worth the trip if you bundle up - they're amazing!
