The Fish Shack Ratings and Reviews
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.
This is our 2nd time at Fish Shack. The food is good and the service excellent. We just noticed that the table arrangement is a bit squeeze that you would hear the other table's conversation. Getting out to go to the washroom means you're elbow to elbow with the guests on the other table. But we came for the food which is excellent!
Met my friend for pre-concert dinner. Not a good choice for us as we are at the older end of the age spectrum and it seemed like the majority of patrons were young people. The Fish Shack was very noisy but to be fair it was the happy hour. We had calamari to start and it was not good as it was very rubbery and tough. The pot of mussels was nice and the broth they came with was delicious. Didn't have dessert as we had to leave to go to the Orpheum.
Ordered big catch and oysters.Cocktail menu is pretty decent though. Oysters are all right. Big catch contains lobster, crab, snow crab, clams, etc. The clams, crab, and mussels weren't fresh, had funny smell. The bowl of seafood came out cold, and not really any buttery flavour. Whole bill including a wine and a beer is $110 plus tips, and likely would not come back for big or small catch.
Servers were good as were oysters. I ordered clam chowder in bread bowl. Chowder was literally cold and bread was so rock hard I couldnt cut through it with a knife & fork. Bathrooms were dirty. Used to be a favorite "good value" type spot. Will not likely return.
I’m an international visitor. I don’t know what sort of food would be good in Vancouver. I thought that seafood would be good and the Fish Shack should be good at seafood. We had the $38.50 pp seafood bowl but unfortunately all but the mussels and clams had no freshness and no flavor. There was lobster, three types of crab, and prawns- all tasted like cardboard. I think it must be frozen stuff. It could be that I’m not a local person and I should have known better than to order these things in winter. I don’t know. Highlight of the meal was the brussel sprouts- deep fried, sprinkled with Parmesan- delicious. $100 for seafood bowl for two and one glass of wine.
The food was excellent and the service outstanding. Haley was one of the best servers we've experienced in a long time...congrats on hiring such a quality server. My only "complaint" was the music was a bit too loud to carry on a conversations. Other than that we will return here when we return to Vancouver.
Keep up the good work!
Our reservation was to celebrate 2 birthday and an anniversary, and the servers and cooks were just fantastic. The mixed seafood platters were really good. The fish and chips were quite greasy, but tasty. The drinks were excellent, and the appies were spot-on. Thank you for making it memorable!
Absolutely awesome, my brother and I are from Chilliwack and my sister and her husband came down from Fort Fraser, northern BC. Seafood is all of ours favourite food. This is why I made reservations for lunch here. We ate, we had a glass of wine. My brother ordered a Caesar and it was topped with a fresh oyster on the half shell, a fresh prawn and a few other things. It was amazing!! The food was awesome, from the fish Taco's , Steamed Clams , and Small Catch to the Caesar Salad and crusty bread, we were not disappointed at all. The service was excellent! Great value as well. Although it was busy we did not feel rushed and the visit with my family could not have been better! I highly recommend The Fish Shack to anyone for any occasion.
Thank you Fish Shack!
The food was great we felt that the tables were very close together so we were unable to have a conversation without the other table hearing it was also very loud and we got to enjoy our neighbors conversation over ours I think that if there was more space between the tables it would be much more enjoyable night
My daughter and I went specifically for the seafood boil for two. There were not many muscles, clams and maybe 8 prawns and half a snow crab each (that was not fresh) as the meat inside was pretty dried out and not much in either the body or the legs. There was only 1 cob on the corn cut in 4 and a lot of potatoes. For price it was not work it. They need to check out the Crab Pot in Seattle now that is seafood boil and a half (3) times the size we got here. Won't be eating there again. The one good thing was the service was good,
Popular spot and very lively. Food and service were good but crowded even on a Wednesday night. The area is a bit seedy but doesn’t seem to discourage patrons of this place. Lots of young people. Two guys next to us ate 48 oysters, nothing else except beer.
We had booked a table but still had to wait as the table wasn't ready. It was very noisy and customers around us were complaining about the long wait for their food. After being seated we waited a long time for the server to come and take our order and when the food came one of the dishes which was made up of 3 components only had 2 on the plate so we had to attract the attention of the server who went and brought back a side dish of the missing component by which time the original meal was cold.
Very disappointing. Fish ( Cod) and chips tough and dried out (left over from lunch?). Oysters fresh but unattractively presented with tasteless sauces. Snow crab quite good but needed better implements to deal with it. Ambience a bit on the rough side. Noisy.
