Ended up at Pajo's since my toddler wasn't cooperating or willing to sit still in at restaurant. Luckily we went on a very nice day and sat up top in the chairs. Ordering was fast, pick-up was slow...especially if you get stuck behind those who ordered something other than the fish & chips. Batter was light, fries were fresh, coleslaw was good (creamy dressing w sunflower seeds and raisins). Best F&C we've had, folks across the pond need to reconsider their F&C fame...should have tried Pajo's mushy peas.
There are lot's more options than those previously mentioned. Tapenade Bistro is solid though a little over priced mediterranian/bistro influenced cusine
Blue Canoe right on the docks is new and pretty good value sort of a better version of earl's if you go for that sort of thing. Patio is great.
Papi's has a wine bar which is very nice with mostly small plates. Some are very good and some are just average. Better value than the main part of the restaurant which is overpriced and not as good as Italian you can get downtown
My favorite is Sockeye City Grill on the pier. Their fried calamari is the best, super tender. Go for the fisherman's hotpot, so yummy and satisfying if you love soup. Hubs always order the fish 'n chips there, it's done quite well, I prefer them over Pajo's. I do suggest eating in instead of ordering from their window (limited choices).
I really like Kisamos greek. It is a small family run place with affordable prices and nice size portions, but they aren't re-inventing the wheel.
Steveston Pizza has a phenomenal reputation -- but it's take out.
A great experience is going to Pajos Fish and Chips on the the water (as in floating on the water). It is pretty neat how it serves its food in cones and has specially designed tables to balance them.
I would skip Reflections Gastronomie. Over priced and self-important and the food is average on a good day.
Finish with Timothy's Frozen Yogurt. It's great!

Village Sushi is by FAR THE freshest and most traditional sushi I have ever eaten. I eat here once a week typically, and have never been disappointed one bit. Always fresh, tasty ingredients, and lucky for me I live only a 4 minute walk away:) Definitely try it when in steveston. The only downfall is limited business hours. Dinner is served after 5pm.
And I think Steveston Pizza's reputation speaks for itself. The best and freshest, and original pizza recipes I've seen and tried yet:)
And yes...top it all off with a frozen yogurt from Timothy's...I recommend the blueberry/cherry combo!
