10 Seafood Happy Hours in Vancouver

The following article was submitted by Brewhound – The Happy Hour App

Vancouver is known around the world for its farm/ocean to table, multi-cultural food scene. With a focus on ‘West Coast’ cuisine, where the priority is local and sustainable, restaurants have access to the freshest ingredients, including a variety of seafood and shellfish.

It’s no surprise that seafood makes up a significant portion of many menus here in Vancouver seeing as it can be on plates within hours of being caught or harvested.  High quality seafood also tends to be on the pricier side, so we’ve rounded up the best seafood restaurants in Vancouver where you can indulge in their seafood focused happy hour menus that won’t break the bank!
