Small place, but very good food and friendly service. I went with a friend of mine and we both really like the food and service. Being health conscious, I chose the breadcrumb coating, which was nicely done and the fish was moist. I will go...More

Once again we went to this restaurant to savour their fish and chips and once again we were not disappointed. This time I tried the breaded method on one of my pieces of fish and although I liked it I much prefer the beer battered...More

It's a quaint fish and chips place. It has inside and outside seating. It's nothing fancy, and the service was friendly. They also had some gluten free options. Parking was very limited as was the seating. Prices were reasonable tho on the higher side

We have been wanting to go there for a while as we have heard good things about it...... finally got there! .... and glad we did. We had the battered haddock and battered cod which were both delicious! Our only complaint is the tartar sauce...More

I like Cat's for the friendly atmosphere and nice decor as much as the seafood. The meals that I've tried are good and served with a smile!

I grew up on fish; this is good fish. I grew up on an Island in the Bay of Fundy surrounded by water, fishermen and fish. Cat's has good fish. Fresh, nicely battered. This place is local and not pretentious, just good food.

We dropped in for a late lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Because of the time we wanted something a bit lighter so my husband choses the mussels and I ordered the crab cakes. Both were excellent. I often order crab cakes and usually find that...More

Cat's Fish and Chips is the "Little Blue House" that keeps everyone coming back. Cat's Fish and Chips, in both decor and cuisine is a little slice of East Coast life and could have very easily been plucked right from a Nova Scotian Harbour. Cat's menu has something for everyone! Salmon, burgers, or a cajun chicken breast might be something for you.
