Who doesn’t like good Fish & Chips? Not us, that is for sure. On Vancouver Island there are many excellent places to enjoy this perennial favourite. Most pubs have good Fish & Chips. Even the White Spot does an excellent rendition. There is Bare Bones in Port Alberni, Red Fish Blue Fish in Victoria, and the Rock Cod Cafe in Cowichan Bay. All worthy of a visit.
However, last night was FISH and CHIP night at the EAGLECREST GOLF Club in Qualicum Beach. Some neighbours organized a table for eight at the golf course. TALON’S, the clubhouse dining room is fairly modest, definitely not Capilano or Oak Bay, but the food was good, served promptly at very reasonable prices.
Two piece Cod & Chips for $14. One piece Halibut $16. I enjoyed the Cod while my favourite girl ordered the Halibut. The piece of Halibut was really large so, of course, I was able to help out with it too. The coleslaw was excellent and a generous serving. The Tartar sauce was ok, but I’ve had much better. Chips were excellent and plentiful too.
Eaglecrest Golf Course is open to the public so if you are in the Qualicum Beach area and have a Fish & Chip craving, check it out. Friday nights are Fish and Chip nights. Talon’s has other special nights too. Wings on Wednesday, Prawns on Thursday, Schnitzel on Saturday.

There is also a very nice patio overlooking the course waiting for you.
