If you want Fish & Chips, you shouldn't go anywhere else than WAG. Always more fish than batter and always cooked perfectly ! Eating on the waterfront is always a great treat for anyone---and the service is efficient ,caring and on time. The decor of the place is always 1st class.

It was our wedding anniversary and decided to try WAG. When we got to the upstairs dining area it had a very nice ambiance. The tables were separated with plexiglass in between. The food was amazing we had the wonton Cajun shrimp, braised beef shortribs and the braised lamb shank which both were very tasty and tender. And we tried the famous wag pie which was the chocolate peanut butter pie and it was delicious not to sweet or heavy just amazing. We we’re glad that we had dinner there as we will be back again.

Great service, food outstanding location very accessible. Can’t really ask for more.
Through no fault of the restaurant, I was despondent to see so many people disobeying BC rules for health in public places.
Hardly any customers-wore masks when walking between tables and I’m sure groups of 4 or more were not following the “core people only “ rule!!
Thank goodness WAG had enough space to allow my girlfriend and myself to be safe(ish) in that public space.

Enjoyed a delicious, relaxing dinner overlooking Semiahmoo Bay. We ordered a bottle of Carmen Reserva Pinot Noire, tomato basil steamed mussels for an appetizer, roasted beet salad with arugula and grilled sesame crusted ahi tuna as our entrees.

We really enjoyed the Washington Grill - I had the prawn/curry dish and it was excellent. My husband had the shortribs and really enjoyed them. Service was great. Desert - peanut butter pie was excellent. All and all a great dinner out - parking was a bit of a problem but not the restaurants fault.

We have always loved WAG. This was the first time we ever have not liked the food. We were really shocked.

The tomato basil lobster bisque isn’t a bisque at all. It was just tomato basil soup with some slivers of lobster in it. Very acidic and spicy. The Cajun Cesar salad was bitter. The addition of balsamic didn’t taste good at all. And my husbands pasta was swimming in sauce. It was like the artichokes were kept in lemon juice and were super overpowering and the whole dish was too much lemon juice. Even the bread served with the salad tasted like the olive oil was rancid. All in all a really disappointing night. We always recommend WAG so we don’t know why the food was so unappetizing this time.

Food was delicious 😋 we sat on the patio (enclosed) and when they turned the heaters off it got a little chilly. That’s the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.

Our dining at WAG was to celebrate three birthdays. The spacing of tables and use of plexiglass between tables gave us a comfort that we were safe from other diners. The waiters all had face masks. The food and service was excellent as usual. The WAG is one of our go-to places to a great meal. Well done!!!
