Friendly service and great food. The appetizers were tasty and the main course - pan fried fish and chips was delicious. Also quite tasty for our family was the pasta. They make great caesar drinks. We will be back for sure.

We visited family in Timmons and wanted a nice dinner out. Spinach salad was lots to share, Lobster Mushroom appetizer was good. My fisherman platter (scallops, fish and shrimp) was very good. Maple Salmon was generous size and good flavour, ribs were falling off the bone and shrimp were as expected. Lobster pasta was good too and there was food... More

The menu is extensive, with lots of fish and seafood choices. For the quality, the prices are reasonable. Don't miss the excellent desserts.

Grease grease and more grease. Do not eat here or do not have fish and chips in batter. At one time it may have been the place to go for fish and chips,something has drastically changed. Service was good, restaurant good. Food horrible.

The Fish Bowl is the only 'seafood' restaurant in Timmins. Food is always served fresh and hot and the service is wonderful. Some of the ladies know us by name!! Atmosphere is warm and inviting.

If you are craving fish and chips this is your place to go!! The batter on the fish is light and crispy and truly one of a kind. More importantly though is the customer service...you will usually always find one of the owners on site which guarantees superior service.

Loved the Fishbowl restaurant. We have been before but we don't get to this area often. 13 people in our party and everyone loved the food and service. Did not realize they have been opened for 40 years. Great atmosphere and was still busy by 7 pm when we had to make a reservation for such a big group. They... More
