We ate here last August and ended up going back a few times over our two week stay. The Burgers and fries are amazing and so was the fish and chips. I could hardly keep my husband away. The pricing is very reasonable for the...More

It was located right next to 6th Street.  I ordered fish and chips with an additional serving of fish. The total came down to $21.50. They were out of the fish so we got 16 Oz of fish strips instead. Personally,  I liked this much...More

As other TripAdvisors have accurately raved, this chip truck was THE best fish 'n chips in Tobermory! It's a paradoxical 1st class Fish 'n Chips best eaten in their 2nd-hand-shoe, gravel parking lot cum patio. This isn't your typical, thick-crusted, battered fish, and you can...More

We found this food truck on the way to Tobermory from Bruce Peninsula National Park. It is a neat and clean place and we ordered sausage on the bun with fries. This is yummy but not greasy. The servers are two friendly ladies. I will...More

This place came recommended from the proprietor of the camp ground we were staying at. The fish and chips we're good, not overly battered, and a good amount of Fries. The sauce on the sausage was pretty great. The only thing lacking were more toppings...ie...More
