It is a seafood lover’s paradise at Sockeye City Diner. Locals head to this bustling family-friendly restaurant for fresh oysters in the half shell, live lobster, and succulent crab. Whether you come for the gorgeous view, the gigantic menu or the great staff, Sockeye’s is where it is at!
Show me your Mussels!
A large appetizer menu features seafood favourites topped with delicately prepared sauces. Fresh mussels get flavourful in a lemon garlic broth. Pan-fried oysters drizzled with lemon-lime aioli and served with mango salsa taste divine. Perfect for sharing are the west coast crab cakes with sweet chili aioli. On those cold winter night curl up with a piping hot bowl of seafood chowder. The word is foodies from all over B.C flock to this joint for their massive seafood-loaded soup!
Under the Sea
On the menu discover homemade pastas drizzled with freshly prepared sauce. Try the cannelloni filled with local Dungeness crab, ricotta cheese and spinach in a savoury rose sauce. Sockeye’s claim to fame is their fish, such as the fire grilled wild salmon with roasted pepper relish and the B.C halibut with asparagus and leeks. For a special treat order the whole Atlantic lobster dinner served with hot butter. If that doesn’t catch your fancy, the B.C Dungeness crab simmered in white wine, lemon and garlic comes highly recommended. When you’re short on time during the work week head to Sockeye’s for their famous fish and chips. Large pieces of cod and halibut filet are coated with homemade beer batter and served with a generous portion of tartar sauce.
