Finding a fish and chips place with a dedicated fryer and GF beer is a double win. Have I had better fish and chips? Yes. Do I wish the beer option (Whistler Forager) was one made from malted GF grains not syrup? 100%. Does that make me an ungrateful complainer? Maybe. Enjoy it for what it is.

I've had the fish and chips, and tacos. I didn't get sick, so despite the small space they are careful. The food itself is meh. Tacos are bland, the fish and chips are swimming in grease. The place is busy so getting food out it a priority rather than draining it properly. Exactly what you'd expect from a restaurant going for the tourist market. It has been celiac safe in my experience though, which goes a long way if you need it.

Wait staff were knowledgeable about celiac disease and they went through the gluten free options while ordering. A “celiac alert” was visible on the computer system for both my son and my orders. When picking up our food we were told again about our food being gluten free. It was a fantastic meal of fish tacos, halibut and fries and neither of us became sick afterwards. Great spot!

Not sure what the other review was about but we just confirmed they do have a dedicated gf fryer and even have a sticker from the celiac association on their window. I felt very confident about the safety. GF menu is not posted but they will tell you which options cannot be made gf. Most of the menu can be gf.

Asked for gluten-free / celiac friendly fish and chips. We were informed they did not recommend celiacs ordering from them as they have a small kitchen, no GF flower, and NO GF fried. Nice, informed staff, but not celiac friendly.

So yummy 🤤 fish 🐠 and chips, soup (don’t get the salmon 🍣 soup it has gluten) They do have a dedicated fryer and ask them to label your order Celiac. Loved the Halibut fish and chips, the tartar sauce and Cole slaw was fantastic!

Good fish and chips and lots of gf options. This was my first fish and chips since the diagnosis so I was very very happy with it! They knew the drill and the cook made sure my dish didn’t even came near the others. Would definitely recommend this place!

Ils ont une friteuse dédiée au sans gluten et sont au courant de la maladie et de la contamination croisée. Excellente nourriture, le poisson est issu d'une pêche durable et les contenants sont compostables. Ils offrent aussi une très bonne bière sans gluten.

I was extremely disappointed to say the least. Visiting all the way from North Carolina and looking forward for some GF fish and chips. The server was handling the food with bare hands, no gloves whatsoever, and handled our GF fish and chips after touching bread for another serving, cross-contaminating our meals. Our meals had been “labeled” allergy and Gluten free by the cashier, so NO excuses here. Both my Canadian nephew and myself are Celiac. Totally unacceptable, I was livid. We were in a rush to catch a boat ride so there was no time to get anything else. Unacceptable!!!

Don’t miss this place!!! Our absolute favourite place for fish and chips. Located at the beautiful Fisherman’s Wharf, this restaurant has excellent celiac awareness so rest assured that your meal will be carefully prepared. Everything they make is outstanding and every Wednesday you get 20% off your order if you mention the “Celiac Scene” (local group).
