“Just like home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

No frills, no garnish, no pomp. Just good greasy seafood. Consistent, fast and filling. Always a winter favorite of ours. It's not fine dining but it's a great fish and chip shop. It's wholly Canadian; it doesn't pretend to be British. It's down home east cooking out west.

“LIKE eating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2013

Food is good...fish is excellent..a bit pricey for lunch, but friendly staff who remember not only YOU, but what you ORDERED.at your previous visit....particularly Shirley who has been there for awhile. She certainly brings back repeat business ....decor a bit outdated, washrooms, etc bit overall is okay.

“Fishy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2013 via mobile

It is just a fish and chips restaurant on the main floor of an office building and is busy for lunch. The fish and chips are good and they are good at service and friendly too. Nothing too fancy for atmosphere but clean

“Not what we remembered”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

Haven't been here for a few years and were in the mood for Fish and Chips. We enjoyed it the last time we were there so we thought it would be good. Something has changed as our fish and chips were not what we remembered. The fish was crispy and hot. But smaller portions of fish and I don't know if it is their own batter or some pre-battered fish. Hard to tell. It was good and not too greasy . Oddly enough instead of a real lemon wedge to go with the fish they put a small bottle of Real Lemon on the table. Certainly not authentic. Kind of cheapened the experience. The french fries were luke warm. The restaurant has a bit of a greasy smell to it but I guess that is what you expect from a fish and chip place. They have a lot of items on the menu from soup and sandwiches to all types of seafood. With so many items it makes you wonder if they are stretching themselves too thin or if the fish is really fresh or just frozen and then deep fried. The waitress was friendly and service was fairly prompt but the restaurant was not busy when we were there on a Sunday afternoon. In the future I might see if I could find a different fish and chip place to compare.
