Thank you for your comments...we try hard to have a diverse menu. As good as our fish and chips are, not everyone likes fish. Our chili has won quite a few chili cook offs over the years and we also appreciate our gluten free customers....More

We stopped in Huntsville after a long day of hiking in Algonquin and Westside is exactly what we needed! Great fish and chips, good portion sizes, relaxed atmosphere and reasonably priced. Will come back next time we are in the area!

Description
Westside Fish and Chips Family Restaurant has been run by the same family since 1979. Although they became famous for hand dipped, hand cut, English Style Fish and Chips the menu is versatile enough for all types and sizes of appetites. One wouldn't think that a fish and chip shop could make a good breakfast and they don't...they make a GREAT breakfast! The BEST Eggs Benny, hand cut and grilled homefries, eggs made to order and much more. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner there is something to please everyone. From picky eaters to vegetarians and those avoiding gluten, you'll find something to like. Check out the over 500 teapots adorning shelves all over the restaurant and the dozens of Disney and other animated paintings on the ceiling.
