Really love this little place for fish and chips, whether you eat in or take home their food is always fresh, hot and tasty and made to order. Fast and friendly service. Reasonable prices, especially the haddock. Not much difference between the flavour/texture of the halibut and haddock so why not just order the more reasonably priced haddock. The french... More

Found this place on justeat.ca and gave it a try. It's a little hole in the wall. Very hidden in my opinion. There was only one person working and she was very pleasant. She was super nice to my 6 month old son and 3 and a half year old daughter. Food choices were same as everywhere. I substituted my... More

Comparing the quality and style here to the fresh fish and chips I've had from the Maritimes it stacks up well. I've been multiple times and never had any issues with food or service. Worth visiting here or the fish and chips place on the corner of Ritson and Taunton in the strip mall by Giant Tiger.

The fish is prepared fresh when ordered, not frozen. The fish has a great batter, with nice chunky fries. Unfortunately the price has gone up, but the quality is still there. The place is getting a dated and run down.

This is a very small operation with only a few tables. The bulk of their business is take out. They serve halibut and cod as well as occasional other fish varieties. The portions are generous especially of the chips. The staff is VERY friendly and there is ample parking. The prices charged are quite competitive.

I came here years ago, but now it does not feel the same. The pieces smaller and by the time you add all the extras, it is way more expensive than on the sign out front. Slightly greasy in the paper, it is not the greatest deal or the biggest piece of fish. If your ok with no drink or... More

Stopped in with my daughter back before Halloween and stepped right back out before I paid for the order. They were angry with me as the fries went into fryer already but the same hand that wiped under the nose was used to handle the fries for our order without any cleansing in between. Not cool.

My husband and I went in to have fish and chips as we have been many times before. There was man at the cash going through the tip container. The cashier took our order and we paid and sat down. We then saw the same man, presumably the owner or manager go straight to packing up fish and chips using... More

My husband and I truly enjoy take out fish and chips from here, the fish is lightly battered and even the homemade coleslaw is delicious. Prices are better than market value, plus they have in house daily specials. Dine-In is fine too, nothing too refined - old style diner tables and chairs. Owners are very nice too.
