Our good friend Paul is a Fish & Chips aficionado. In fact, a few summers ago in our boating days he rated all the boat accessible Fish & Chip joints around the Gulf Islands. He considered quality of the fish, the batter, the chips, tarter sauce and cole slaw. He knows good Fish & Chips, so when he recommended The SHIP AND SHORE RESTAURANT in Deep Bay, I knew we had to try it.
Today was a beautiful warm sunny September day, perfect for the 35 minute drive from FRENCH CREEK to DEEP BAY on the old Island Highway.
We had made a reservation and were promptly seated on the patio overlooking the marina. We didn’t need to peruse the menu as we knew what to order. One piece Halibut & Chips for my favourite girl and two piece Cod & Chips for me. Was it good? Absolutely. Very crispy batter, good fries and tasty coleslaw.
The service was very efficient and very friendly too.
If you love Fish & Chips, you must try the Ship & Shore. Check out their menu here.
