A fish-and-chips restaurant in White Rock since 1975. Licensed heated outdoor nautical patio. Serving fish and chips, seafood platters, large burgers, chicken breast entrees, salads and more.
once again we enjoyed our fish'n'chips.
busy place.we try and avoid the beach on sunny daysbecause of the volume of people and parking,but the crave was on for fish and chips.
the fries are home cut,cooked to golden brown(are not crispy as you would expect from a frozen product) the fish is alaskan ling cod which they advertise(if you know the differencebetween types of fish you certainly know that its cod).the fish was crispy and juicey(an other sign that it is cod)and the service was spot on.
no complaints here,it is what it is,fish'n'chips.
we will be back.
I'm not quite sure why I like this restaurant. There are many reasons to not like it - the fish and chips are just so-so, the restaurant is dated and looks like it needs a good scrubbing and the line-up on a hot summer day is crazy! That said, there's something about this place that keeps me coming back. Maybe it's because this is one of the last vestiges of what White Rock used to be like before the developers moved in. Its a homey, friendly welcoming place where they give you 3 pieces of fish when you order 2 and they make their own tartar sauce. Your kids are welcome and they'll have fun looking at all the whale stuff and reading the funny signs posted on the walls while waiting for dinner to arrive. Afterwards, you get to pick your own sucker out of the dish by the cash register (the red ones always go first). The fish is just "fish", no claims of cod or halibut, it's some sort of white mystery fish, but it's good!
We had a family dinner at the Moby Dick and were very impressed by the food. The fish & chips were great, the tarter sauce was amazing. We were a little skeptical because of the few 'greasy' reviews, however I guess if you don't want greasy fish & chips you should go somewhere where they bake them in the oven with no batter and maybe a salad instead of fries. The service was somewhat slow, however they were extremely friendly and accommodating. Overall I would recommend the Moby Dick to anyone who wants authentic fish & chips!
This was my first time dining at this restaurant. It was very busy, we waited for a long time to have our fish & chips. But once the fish & chips arrived, I knew they were freshly done. It was hot and sizzling. The waitress was very nice.
But there was only one thing that I want to say. While we were waiting. There was a man seemed to be the owner or the manager of the restaurant. He was runing around apologying to people who are waiting for the food. We've waited longer than those people, but he left us out. Never came to our table and said anything... We were the only asian customers at that time. I don't know if it was because we were quite and waiting patiently, so he think that we don't care the wait? I don't mind the waiting for the food, but if he only left us out, that didn't make me feel good. And it didn't make us look good.....
Other than that, the food was great! The waitress was excellent! She made sure we have enough water, and she was so friendly.
Still the best fish and chips. Been there many, many times. Owners are so pleasant as is the staff. Recommend it to everyone. But please people, every place has an off day. If the food or service is a problem point it out. Give them a chance to make amends. Every restaurant knows the rule, if you like a place you'll tell a half dozen, it you don't you'll tell 20. Most places want to do the right thing; it's why they're in business and if you're nice but straightforward they'll do whatever it takes. Don't let one bad review put you off. This is a great quaint place. Love going there.
