We have been coming to Steveston for the fish and chips at Pajos, every time we are in Vancouver. On this day, Pajos' was closed, so we remembered what others had said and opted to go to Dave's. The interior of the restaurant has a nautical theme, service was friendly and efficient and the fish and chips (Halibut for us) were indeed tasty. Different batter than Pajo's but at least we know we can get fish and chips at Steveston, no matter the weather.

Generous portions, we each opted for the two piece halibut and chips. We brought a take home box away.
Served with the best colslaw I've ever tasted.
Friendly helpful staff.
Tastefully and aptly decorated with wonderful art from a local fisherman.
Come hungry for a wide selection of seafood favorites sure to please every appetite.
Eat in or take out available.

We arrived at about 10:20 AM and discovered that Dave's does not open until 11:00 AM. 15 minutes were spent browsing in Steveston Marine (a few steps to the East). We were the first patrons but within a 1/2 hour the restaurant was about 1/2 full. We all ordered the cod and chips, the chips were splendid but the fish fasted a bit on the fishy side and was a tad over cooked. The two servers were both very pleasant and cordial.

Was recommended this place. Friendly staff and great choices. My husband had the platter (halibut, shrimps, scallops) which was cooked to perfection. I had the halibut and chips--ordered one piece and it was so good, had to order another! Casual dining at it's finest!

Stopped for a quick lunch before taking our late afternoon flight out of YVR. We were greeted at the door and given our choice of tables. The menu had a lot of options, but we were in the mood for halibut and chips, so put in our order right away. The service was quick and efficient and our food came in a very short period of time. The fish was outstanding, with a very light batter that wasn’t at all greasy. The fish was hot and beautifully cooked, with a firm texture and incredibly fresh flavour. The tartare sauce was tangy and perfectly complimented the fish. Accompanied by hot and crispy French fries and a fresh, crunchy coleslaw that was tangy with just the right hint of sweetness. Great value, outstanding fish and good service in a quaint restaurant - couldn’t ask for anything better! Highly recommend visiting if you are in the neighborhood.
