Shady Island Seafood Bar & Grill is located on the Fraser River in Steveston Landing, offering unique waterfront views all year round, and a great patio in the summer. The restaurant has been in operation for over twenty years and are open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Shady Island’s fish and chips are known as “the best on the Boardwalk”, so I just had to order their 2-piece Cod & Chips to see if their claim really was true.
Coleslaw was fresh, fries were crispy, and the cod was surrounded by a medium-thickness batter, deep-fried to a golden brown. Best on the Boardwalk? Perhaps. Although I haven’t tried other Boardwalk selections, so I couldn’t really comment. I did feel that this fish and chips dish was significantly better than Go Fish Ocean Emporium (except the shack does offer stunning views of Vancouver), but I really enjoyed Finest at Sea. Have you been to Shady Island? Who do you think offers the best fish & chips on the lower mainland?
