This pub used to be mediocre at best, however it has much improved in both food and beer selection - both areas very important for a pub! It has a moderate selection of beers, both local and not. The food was good, but definitely not great. I would certainly return here as it is both convenient for location and sufficient... More

We got off the ferry hot and tired and made our regular stop at the Blackfish Pub. The food never disappoints and they have the nicest staff anywhere (and we travel a great deal. The meatloaf special on Tuesday's is excellent and the bar b cue ribs melt in your mouth. On a lovely summer evening pick a spot in... More

We ate here twice while staying in Gibsons. It is on the main road with good parking. The pub is huge with several areas to eat and drink - including an outside patio. Service on both nights was friendly and efficient. There is a reasonable choice in the menu - including some vegetarian options. We had steaks and burgers and... More

This pub offers a good variety of food choices, great wait staff, easy to find and adequate parking. I like the different seating areas and the free pool tables are a great bonus. Relaxing and fun with good food.

While the Blackfish used to be an easy place to go with a couple of friends, the food has been hit or miss for the last year or so and we've given up on it. They have a nice patio and there's always lots of people there (not exactly my scene though as it seems more geared to an older... More

Friends recommended this pub and I am glad they did. The food and atmosphere was great. It's a comfortable place to enjoy some downtime.

The friendly servers are the first thing that you notice about the Blackfish Pub and then it just gets better. The menu offers a wide variety of food selections, whether you want chicken, seafood, burgers, etc. Everything tasted delicious and the portions were larger. I noticed a lot of people taking food home. If we ever go back to Gibsons... More

Service was good. Ambience a bit like a beer parlor in a nicely-designed building. Lots of parking and a good outside deck (except that the smoking section was upwind and I'm a newly unuser). Cod and chips about like any other pub, but good enough. We will go back, but it may just be for a Guinness or two.
