The Fish Shack Ratings and Reviews
We had a double date there on Saturday night. Her surgery was kind and funny. The food was really great! I loved all of it and so did our guests, except I found the coleslaw was too intense with horseradish or the Asian vinaigrette. Overall it was a fantastic time
This was our first experience at the Fish Shack. It was very good! Friendly service, fun atmosphere, very good food. We normally go to the Coast Seafood, but we will be back at the Fish Shack soon for a fun, casual and relaxing dinner. Also great Caesar cocktail choices! Will defintely be back to try another caesar. I had the ling cod meal and my husband had the burger. The fries were a bit too salty, but otherwise great meal for the price!
Went there for dine out Vancouver and got there early enough to catch the tail end of happy hour. They have decent $5 cocktails during happy hour. And buck a shuck all day, but the oysters are really small compared to other buck a shuck restaurants. Server checked on us frequently and the place gets pretty busy later in the evening. The food portions are on the small size. But overall good value for the amount your paying.
Very underwhelming and we were disappointed with our meal. It was part of the Dine Out Vancouver so we had high expectations and it was mediocre to be nice about it! The fish/shrimp taco duo was very, very bland. The server was friendly and apologized but we paid and left accordingly.
The Dine Out Vancouver 2018 menu was amazing. The two of us shared two menus and were able to try 5 different dishes. All being delicious and value for money (CAD20 for the menu). The service, unlike what we saw in other reviews, was swift, warm and friendly.
We were quite a bit disappointed this time with the food. We had a 2 for dinner voucher which we do occasionally and have always been happy and satisfied, but this time at the Fish Shack the food was only so so. It was suppose to be a 3 course dinner. So the soup a clam schowder arrived lukewarm so we had it brought back to the kitchen. We received another "hotter" one but we could only find one tiny piece of clam in the soup.
Then for the main course, a salmon/crab dish on a bed of mashed potatoes and grilled brussels sprouts? First of all somehow that doesn't go well together. The piece of salmon was dry, the mashed potatoes were lukewarm and the brussels sprouts were also so so.
The only thing that was OK was the desert, simple but good.
I must say our waiter was very friendly
We dine there before truly enjoyed the seafood, which was fresh and tasty
Tried Fish Shack for the first time on a Dine Out Vancouver promo. Appies were lobster Mac and cheese balls, main seared tuna, desert stick toffee pudding. The app had little to no seafood or cheese in it and was basically just a deepfried ball of macaroni, pretty gross and I would not recommend it. The main was much better than the app, seared tuna was done beautifully, very thin uniform layer of cooked flesh on the most outer edge and a fantastic dark red centre, whomever did the tuna did it right. The sides with the main were cold, like chilled cold, it was a bit odd to say the least, ice cold potatoe cubes and green beans, meh. The desert, was neither sticky or pudding like, more closely to a pound cake with butterscotch sauce, not bad but also not really what I would call sticky toffee pudding. Our server was really good, friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is pretty neat, but loud and the tables are separated by probably less than a foot, so if you're looking for a more private romantic feel this is probably not your place. While I didn't love this meal, I also didn't hate it. I might go back sometime, but I'm not in a rush.
Terrible. Poor service. Server lied to us about a dish.thinking we cannot tell the difference between Thai curry sauce and a garlic sauce. We had to go downstairs to find her and ask her for our desserts which we waited 20 mins for. Food was bland and wouldn’t go back.
We went here for the first time during dine out Vancouver. The food was pretty terrible. The appetizer was bland. We paid $20 extra each for the fresh catch option for the entree and the portion was small and the food (corn and potatoes) were cold.. we had our server send the food back to reheat and when it returned the potatoes were reheated, but the crab and prawns were then cold. Very disappointing!! The dessert was supposed to be sticky toffee pudding and in reality was a dry price of white cake coated in caramel sauce with a little whipped cream. Again, very disappointed. I understand that the dine out vancouver festival means restaurants are very busy, especially on a weekend night. But as dine out is a great way to bring new clientele in and showcase great food/restaurants in the city, our experience here on Friday will ensure we will not be visiting this restaurant again.
I’ve been to Fish Shack multiple times and have always enjoyed their food, especially their buck-a-shuck oysters. Their 2018 Dine Out menu sounded promising but was so disappointing. The waitress got our order wrong (she didn’t repeat back to us when we ordered) and brought us shrimp bisque to start when we both ordered Lobster Mac & cheese balls. She didn’t seem happy when we told her we ordered the Mac n cheese. In retrospect, I should have just gone with her mistake. The lobster Mac & cheese balls were greasy and didn’t taste like lobster. The shrimp bisque looked and smelled better. Good thing we also ordered a dozen buck-a-shuck oysters and a Caesar from their happy hour menu. The oysters were good and the Caesar was good & spicy but I didn’t like that it didn’t have a celery salt rim. Instead it was just paprika or chili powder. Too spicy. The seared ahi tuna was underwhelming. No seasoning or flavour whatsoever on the tuna and the accompanying green beans were equally tasteless. The sticky toffee pudding was soft and moist but was cloyingly sweet. Overall a huge disappointment.
My friend and I decided to Dine Out here since we’ve been wanting to do a seafood share platter for a long time. This was a great place, the server (Kristen) was every efficient and amazing with her quality of service. This was actually my second time being served by her and all I can say is well done! Loved the Lobster MAC & cheese balls + the buck a shuck!
We went to the dine-out lunch and encountered poor service from our waitress. Unfortunately, we didn't have a good experience with our food either. My husband's seared Ahi Tuna was bland and poorly presented although my duo tacos were fine.
The dine-out menu listed the dessert as "Sticky Toffee Pudding chantilly cream, salted toffee sauce" and what we were served was a small piece of dry cake with a sad imitation of caramel icing slapped on top with a dab of imitation whipping cream on the side. There was no salted toffee sauce either. It tasted awful and certainly not a Sticky Toffee Pudding as described on the dine-out menu! Fish Shack should not deceived their customers in this manner which is an extremely unethical practice and especially when they do offer the sticky toffee pudding on their regular standard menu. Hence, it's obvious that they are trying to save costs by serving a pathetic a small dry piece of cheap cake instead of the actual dessert stated on their dine-out menu.
We dined out frequently and also participated in the Vancouver Dine-Out every year since they started. This is the first time we have ever encountered such bad service and blatantly cheated on the entrée served. We also don't appreciate being snapped at by a waitress when requesting for a menu!
Overall, we had a horrible dining experience at The Fish Shack and definitely will not patronize or recommend this restaurant at all.
We went for Dine Out Vancouver to try TheFish Shack for our first time. The service and ambiance was great. Unfortunately, the soup came out cold and our fish tacos were not the freshest with a fishy taste. The table next to us also had an issue with the food.
