I can't believe I've lived here for 2 years and missed out on this place ! Went with family for my birthday. Ordered the cod but grilled instead of deep fried and it was the best cod I've had in my life ! So yummy ! My parents had halibut cheeks and they were delicious as were the deep fried... More

Service was nice, it's called "The fish place" so don't expect good steak. Steak was thin, rubbery and overpriced for what you are getting. Food didn't look that fresh. It's ok, but don't expect anything really good.

Sadly I've been here three times and twice it's been disappointing . I feel a seafood platter should be filling for one person. It was a joke. By the time the young lady came over to see how I was making out I had been done eating and did tell her the food was very good just terribly small portions.... More

For a tiny little place, quite off the beaten track the Fish Place is a must if you enjoy good seafood. Until last month, my last visit to Ft. Mac was 10 years ago. I was happy to discover the Fish Place was still going strong, serving guests their tasty food.

Enjoyed the battered cod and chips. There was 7 in our group and everyone enjoyed the meal. Nice little spot worth getting off the highway for if you like fish 'n chips.

As a family we always go and dine in this restaurant. The servers know what they are doing. The foods are freshly prepared and awesome. The price is reasonable. I highly recommend this place.

Everything was incredibly salty and came from a box or can. Not sure anything is made fresh. Big menu, yes but most of it is not available:first 3 things we ordered were unavailable. Waitress was really friendly and nice but really expected better food. Couldn't finish eating any of the dishes cause the salt was overwhelming.
