About Barb’s

Floating since 1984

Barb’s Fish & Chips is floating in Victoria BC’s Inner Harbour at the vibrant Fisherman’s Wharf. Enjoy watching all the activity – fishing, sail, charter and house boats, seals playing in the harbour, sea planes taking off and landing – as you sit at open-air picnic tables eating Barb’s tender-crisp pieces of halibut, cod or sockeye salmon and fries.

Barb’s Fish & Chips Seafood Restaurant opened in 1984 and we have continued to grow and expand ever since. Word of mouth and positive community support have helped make us a landmark in Victoria, being voted #1 ‘Best Fish and Chips’ for the past 32 years.

We pride ourselves in serving quality, freshly made food. All our burgers, chowder, dips, dressings, carrot cakes and famous chocolate chunk cookies are made in our Prep kitchen and brought daily to the restaurant. And our friendly crew is the best!

Barb’s has also had the honor of being a film set for the series, “Sea Hunt”, as well as being featured on the TV Food Network, mentioned in the novel “Deep Sting” and a Harlequin Romance novel entitled “Wild Passage”, in addition to numerous newspaper articles and such travel guides as “Best of the Pacific Northwest” and “Lonely Planet”. Barb’s was also rated by Sunset Magazine as one of the “Top 10 seafood spots by the sea in North America”

Whether you are a tourist or a Victoria resident looking for a great meal and an excursion that is out of the ordinary, make it Barb’s Fish & Chips at Fisherman’s Wharf. We look forward to serving you soon!
