One of us ordered the pollock -- it came long and thin, almost all batter with virtually no fish inside. What fish there was was flaky but it was wet and tasteless. Batter was OK.

Notwithstanding the lack of advertising, this small eatery has been our favorite fish & chips place for years. It is as close to authentic English fish & chips that we have found in Ottawa. I do miss their captain's plate that they used to have.

We've been using Digby's (and Joey's previously) over an eight year span and have never had a bad meal. It is value for money, nothing elaborate - but they don't try to be something they're not - and the food is always fresh, good tasting and not greasy. Prices are good and serving staff are very friendly and accommodating. Go... More

Standard and uninspired Fish and Chips casual fair. Prices vary from good to a little high ($6.99 Kids Menu!).

Tried it for lunch. Pleasant wait staff but the food was just OK. Nowhere even remotely close to the best fish and chips that we have eaten.....like Herbert ' s in Killarney. Not even close the Red Lobster stuff. Not bad, just nothing special to recommend this place. No hurry to return.

This restaurant, although dark and kitchy, has amazing seafood. I had the fish (Alaskan pollock) and chips and was delighted - it was the best fish and chips I ever had. The service was good and friendly.And it was very inexpensive.
