Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food was great. It's busy, so you need to expect a bit of a wait. There are picnic tables with water bowls for dogs under them which was perfect for us and our pooch. We had a 1-piece fish and chips and the J-burger....The fish was soooo good and the tartar sauce and coleslaw were also good. Fries were great. My husband thought his Big Jigg-burger was amazinglMore

We looked forward to eating at Jiggers after reading excellent reviews. We were not disappointed. The cod was delicious and the food was piping hot as each serving is cooked to order. The chips and accompanying coleslaw were equally good and the meal was served...with a pot of tartar sauce. The portion size is huge so avoid ordering too much. Just watch out for the crows which are eager to pounce if you leave the food unattended.More

Fish and chips was excellent. Enjoyed the meal outside at the picnic table and unfortunately lost a partial piece of fish to a crow 🐦‍⬛ right off the table. Owner was kind enough to supply a free piece of fish, thank you very much, the...incident itself was rather comical; amazing meal, thanks again 😋More

Ucluelet, is now fairly well populated with an array of food trucks, serving a fairly wide selection of cuisines & foods, from fish & chips, Mexican bbq, to fried chicken & on. There was a time, not so long ago, before food trucks became the...current cafe or food place to go to — as we saw with the rise in Starbucks outlets, with one almost on every corner in most towns & cities in North America, then later with the sushi place — that Jiggers’ was the only food truck in the hood. I loved it then, going for fish & chips whenever we were visiting Ukee — as locals refer to the ocean village, which is located on Canada’s Wild West coast. This past month my family picked up takeout & I had its fish &chips. It came with fries & tartare sauce with some coleslaw. It was as tasty as every other time I had had it. So now, if in Ukee, one can chose from a number of food truck places — Nuglife, with its focus on fried chicken; West Coast Salty Buns, with its focus on buns, burritos & tacos or other bbq smoked food. All are good & do a good job of the food it has selected to have as its focus. However, Jigger’s the first one & around for some decades, holds its own in that food vehicle line up. (Just a note to those who do not know the lores & regulations of the coast region — no chains like Starbucks or Tim Hortons etc are allowed in the area. This has allowed a good mix of interesting stores & restaurants to develop without perhaps being crushed on price by the big store chains of the world) Posted by S FullerMore

We ordered 3 PC fish and chips. Cod was catch of the day. Fresh made to order. Batter had some Herby bits in it. Crispy not greasy so fresh! It fed all 3 of us. Came with coleslaw and tartar sauce. There was vinegar, malt...and white in a spray bottle (how clever)! There was ketchup available too, siracha for those who like it hot. Just happened to drive by and see several seats taken in the outdoor dining space on an unseasonably warm October day. Glad we stopped!More

Popped in on a local recommendation. One piece of fish and fries and I wondered what the fuss was about. The fries were just fries you’d get anywhere but really greasy both in texture and taste. The fish had a thick batter on it which...again was just fatty. I threw most of it away and a waste of some $19. I’m British and probably can tell what a decent plate of fish and chips looks like a this was not one of them by any stretch of the imagination.More

The fish and chips were both a plate of grease. We went by the ratings and were totally mislead. We ended up throwing it all out because it was so greasy. Lesson learned, will never go back.

Great fish and chips! Fish portions very large, so one piece would be enough for me. (And freshly sourced.) Service was relatively fast. (but don't be in a hurry) Prices fairly high for food truck. Friendly service. We had to try it, after online hype.

Jiggers never disappoints. I had an amazingly tasty prime rib burger this time and also finished off my mother in law’s fish because the portion was a LOT bigger than she was expecting when she ordered it. I will definitely eat here again next time...I return to the west coast.More

I was very disappointed with the fish as it was not fresh and disintegrated after each bite. The chips were acceptable but were dry and a bit greasy. My wife said see enjoyed it but I ordered 2 pieces of fish but threw it all...away before finishing the first piece. I will say that the lady who took the order was polite and cheerful.More
