We've eaten at Don's many times over the years, even giving them a good review last year. The quality, however, has plummetted. Our fish was NOT dipped in batter in the restaurant, and was way off their former quality, as were the chips. The batter was soft and doughy, and missed "crisp" by a mile. We've had better in country... More

Was looking forward to some traditional fish and chips and saw good ratings for Don's. Also they had won a local award. Fries were great and very generous helping. However, fish seemed to be a standardized frozen product - not very exciting.

I love that this place is open all year around. I recently just moved to Kingston and people from here travel to brockville just for dons fish and chips. I love the food and the service. I wish they still made their own tartar sauce though

A visit to Brockville is not complete without a trip to Don's. It is a take-out only fish and chip stand, and they specialize in fish and chips. Take your order, wrapped in newspaper to keep it warm, and have a picnic on Blockhouse Island, just around the corner. I have met people from Ottawa that come to Brockville just... More

The goto place for great fish and chips. A legend in the region. It is pricey but well worth the money.

Great place - have gone there for years. Strictly takeout. Paper bags/wrapped in newspaper. Place is always busy, but one can get thru fairly quickly. Best thing to do is either head over to Blockhouse Island or Hardy Park and enjoy the river while eating. This is one of 2 restaurants I hit each and every time I head back... More
