Yummy Fish & Chips. Fresh potatoes, generous serving, crispy, would have liked them cut thicker. Lots of seafood options. Friendly counter hostess. Several eat-in tables, covered picnic tables outside for warm weather overflow crowd. Not quite cheap eats due to rising costs of fish & seafood. Not quite fast food, but better than local chain burger joints. A great option... More

Love Flynn's! They even offer meals for hot lunch programs in our local schools. A major bonus for our small community. Don't forget to try their deep fry pickles!!

Small roadside diner with amazing Haddock. Generous portions and amazing friendly staff! I had the one piece haddock with fries and coleslaw. I was stuffed. There are outside covered picnic tables for when the weather is good.

Greeted with a smile and hello on a bad winter evening. We were quickly seated, handed menus, and our drink orders taken. I ordered the one piece cod with coleslaw and chips, and my friend ordered the halibut and extra slaw instead of chips. Within a few minutes the orders arrived, and boy was it good and filling. The restaurant... More

While watching my daughter's hockey game recently in the Duncan Island Savings Centre, I found myself with a craving for some fish n' chips. Ordered the one piece battered deep fried salmon with fries and coleslaw. Well to my pleasant surprise, my order came up with 2 generous pieces of fish, delicious fresh cut fries and perhaps the best coleslaw... More

We used to frequent this establishment when we lived in Shawnigan Lake, when it was known as Mill Bay Fish & Chips. Now, though, as Flynn's, it's become a novelty lunch stop for us whenever we are in the area. Greeted immediately when we arrived, we sat down at a very clean table with condiments that weren't all sticky and... More

Have come here in the past ordering their Fish and Chips and found it to be good...the Fish Tacos today were very disappointing..the corn shell was cold, very dry and tasted stale..I returned them to have remade and the shell was still cold and tasted even staler! The server's response was "this is how they are", "the coleslaw makes them... More

The batter was light the fish moist and flakey, the coleslaw was scrumptious and the chips were just right! Love the homemade tartar sauce too! Will return on our next trip to Mill Bay!

When you picture a fish and chip shop, this is generally what you picture. There is nothing fancy here, but you will get what you came for.. Fish and chips made right.
