Give up already!
Submitted Saturday, March 31, 2012 - 1:57pm [Dine in]

My partner and I were going for a walk yesterday (Friday evening) and noticed this place. It looked empty, so we thought we'd go in for a drink and maybe a quick bite to eat. We walked in, and the bartender and waitress just looked at us, no smiles. Said sit wherever and then went to the kitchen. Wow. Bad start already. Finally caught the waitress' attention and she asked what we wanted. I said how about a menu. I'll just cut this short - but am saying this to give you an idea. We both ordered Stanley Park ales, and I ordered a burger, my partner had 2 piece cod & chips. I swear, 30 mins later after waiting for another drink, to no avail, I asked how much longer it would be. She said probably another 10 mins!!! Meantime, another beer finally. To sum it up, the fish was tiny, soggy, and under fried. Chips on both burger and fish weren't cooked enough and were somewhat warm. The tarter sauce and coleslaw were old and disgusting, with WAY too much salt. Meanwhile we had to watch some young cook dance around, and sing through the kitchen window. I made a joke to my partner, first fish & chip place with dinner show. The waitress gleemed over and said if we didn't like the place, we didn't have to come back and that the cook was actually a part owner.

So, in total, for the worst fish & chips, under cooked burger & chips, 4 beers, our bill was $64 including tip. I was reluctant to leave a tip based on the bad food, snarky attitude of the waitress, but ended up rounding it to $70 and we got up. Not even a thanks as we slowly made our way to the door shaking our heads. We definately DO NOT reccomend this. They'll get business during the summer, only cause they have a good location and large patio. I'd suggest you make a little effort to those who contribute to paying your bills in the OFF season though.

My partner and myself decided to go this past Saturday evening for what the sign outside said 'Voted Best Fish and Chips in White Rock'. According to who?! I ordered a Guiness which was fine. Partner had a glass of house red wine and we browsed the menu. Prices were expensive. We ordered what was called a Boxty with brie and bacon. What came out for $9 was 3 measly skinny potatoe pancakes with a tiny pice of bacon and tiny bit of brie with a little sour cream. Oh well. The menu boasts having 'Fressh, Never Frozen Fish'. Sounds good. $16.95 for the 2 piece cod and chips. My friend had his with yam fries, mine with regular.

Order came out approximately 15 mins later with two TINY pieces of fish (the size of chicken nuggets) and extremely over cooked yam fries. I asked the old waiter with glasses if we could get some new yam fries, and his response was they were real yams and they always come out that way. As opposed to fake yam fries? I made a comment about the measly portioned fish and he responds, they're according to our portion control. Fine. But at that price. So the worst part is the Fresh Never frozen??? My two pieces were cooked perfect on the outside, but FROZEN in the middle. Now, the waiter muttered something, took it back without apologizing, and the same pieces were brought back again. Just oilier. Wow, again all this for $16.95. Needless to say, to save further arguing to this guy who didn't really care, we paid exactly what the bill was with tax (no tip for obvi reasons), and left. Without so much as an apology. With so many places on the beach to choose from, you would think they'de want repeat business. Not from us.
