It took 6 years to get a table

Thankfully with the slow down in business in the oil sands, we were able to get a table for lunch at the Fish Place. I have wanted to go here for 6 years. We ordered two of the specials - a mariners plate and a pasta dish with shrimp, lobster and cream sauce. Everything was delicious. I... read more

Had dinner here with a friend who recommended this restaurant. The meals we had here were awesome. We ordered the cod au gratin and the shrimp platter and presentation on the plate and taste of the food was excellent. We tried the house red and white wine and both were Ok as well. The interior of the restaurant is older/dated... 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.

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.
