After hearing that Lord Elgin was rated 2nd best fish and chips in Canada, I stopped for dinner here after a day in town.

There was a lineup to get a table and we ended up waiting, eagerly I might add, for about 15 minutes. Once seated our waitress attended to us in a courteous fashion. I settled on French Onion soup while my date ordered cheese garlic bread to start off. Both were good, but nothing special- except the generous amount of cheese on the soup! Definitely a plus!

Then came our fish and chips! We both had cod, mine was a dinner with a simple coleslaw and a dinner roll. The fish was incredible. Perfectly done with a light and crispy batter- it lived up to it's rating and my expectation.

The Lord Elgin is a gem of a spot to have fish and chips and the best I've ever had. Nothing fancy on the menu and the décor is outdated marine themed but don't let that stop you from coming to The Lord Elgin!

Omg! Biting into this halibut is like a taste of heaven. The fish is "meaty" with no fishy taste at all. Fries are served without salt. You can use the pickup desk to order take out ala Swiss Chalet style. A must for any visit to Port Elgin.

Personally I hate fish, or I should say,
I am very picky and don't cook fish at home. But, I eat here often as their fish is not greasy, it is light and delicious! I recently went to Ireland, one would think seaside fish and chips in Ireland would be great....well I couldn't eat it there after being spoilt by Port Elgin fish and chips. Best ever
