I have been here twise and both visits have been disappointing. I decided to give this place anohter chance after the first visit, but unfortunately the second visit has re-affirmed my initial instinct of never giving this place another try.
During my last visit, I had the cod and chips, and my husband had the halibut and chips. The fish seemed dry and the fries were greasy and soggy. I guess grease is not a surprise considering it is fried, but soggy fries are gross. We also tried the fish tacos. While the fish tacos were good, it is not enough to make me want to go back to this place.
The service was extremely poor. This was evident when my husband and I were seated on the side while eating andthere was a line of about 10 people. The couple at the very end of the line were told by one of the worker that they were cutting off the line just right infront of them. It was not like as if the couple had just arrived at the end of the line, nor was there a sign indicating that they were no longer letting people line up. The couple asked why that was, the worker told them that they do it everynight. I looked at my watch and it was only 6:15, and this place is suppose to be open until 6:30. The couple who was turned away was definitely irate, and rightfully so. Who does that to paying customers????? If you are going to cut the line off 15 minutes prior to your advertised closing time, then maybe you should advertise your closing time accordingly. That is just poor business practice.
If you are on Granville Island, Tony's Fish and Oyster Cafe is less than a 5 minute walk fron Go Fish. They have better food and definitely better service. Also, Pajo's (various locations) is definitely worth a visit as well (Fish and chips served on a newspaper cone).
