Good for Alberta

Look, any Fish Restaurant in Alberta and you know you are not going to get right off the boat fresh fish. That caveat aside this is a pretty good restaurant.

Stopped by on a business trip in Ft McMurray after not visiting the restaurant in over 15 years. Order came up super fast and the food was excellent quality fish and seafood. The service was friendly and prompt. Will definitely return.

We tried the breakfast just recently offered at the Fish Place and it was great. $10.95 gets you 2 egg breakfast with 3 sausages or 4 bacon or ham. Seasoned hash browns and toast or english muffin.

We ordered two of the specials - a mariners plate and a pasta dish with shrimp, lobster and cream sauce. Everything was delicious. I would have to... More

Food not as good as expected, even tho the selection of seafood was amazing for northern AB. Decor was pretty weak too, for the price of the meal.
