This place always has a line up. I was told 100 minutes which was dead on accurate. It was a beautiful day so why not stroll over to Granville Island to kill some time. I ordered the salmon burger and was disappointed with the thinness of the fish, I was wondering if they gave me the wrong thing as it was so white and came with this tiny coleslaw. The brioche bun was good but I felt dissatisfied. Not worth the wait or even no wait, I expected better.

Go Fish somewhere else. When friends from...

Go Fish somewhere else. When friends from Lebanon wanted to eat fish and chips we went to Go Fish. We went there because we were already at Granville Island and the ambiance seemed OK to us. No, not the parking lot, but the water and the boats! Ugh! That's all I can say about the tasteless food, which was a basket of soggy uncooked fish, about 25 (yes, I counted!) soaking wet with oil chips and a small cup of raw and bitter something they called coleslaw. This was definitely not what we had expected after standing in line for about half an hour. Of course, when I asked to speak to the owner; (after all, why would we pay $$$$ for trash); I was told he was not there, and when I asked to speak to the manager, he was unavailable! Hmmmmm.... And yes, there can be a myriad of excuses for this dismal experience, but they would still be excuses! Go Fish would do better to Go Learn some basics.

Top seafood spots for fish sandwiches in Vancouver

Top seafood spots for fish sandwiches in Vancouver

This rustic, blue fish shack serves three different types of sandwiches: an oyster po-boy drizzled with chipotle cream; a char-grilled salmon sandwich with shrimp mayo and Japanese pickled cabbage; and an albacore tuna sandwich topped with sweet chili glaze and “snake bite” salsa. It’s also a scenic place to chow down, with views of nearby Granville Island and False Creek.

Must-try fish and chips in Vancouver

Must-try fish and chips in Vancouver

This False Creek favourite has been making killer fish and chips for years and has an international reputation, even among the visiting British tourists. While coleslaw is usually the least important part of a fish-and-chips plate, Go Fish’s purple cabbage slaw is a highlight. Both cod and halibut options are available. Sit and munch on your meal right on the docks of False Creek for a true seaside experience.

Family-friendly restaurants on Granville Island

If you can make it down to the False Creek docks before 6:30 pm, be sure to make a beeline for Go Fish. At this hour, just before closing, the line-up is bound to be more manageable than the epic queues that form around lunchtime. But even still, it’s worth the wait for fresh-from-the-sea fish and seafood from this famous food cart. Settle in with your shrimp Po’ Boy, fish tacos or the crowd favourite, fish and chips, at one of their patio tables or head to nearby Creekside Park for an evening picnic.
