Food selection was wonderful and quality as well. Quaint restaurant with lots of character. They also had some really unique drink specials and the service was excellent

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.

The place is nothing fancy but the food is good. I went for lunch with a business mate. I had the fish platter and it was very good. The price is what you would expect from Fort Mac, which is more expensive than what it should be. The service was steady and our food and beverages were quick. Overall I... More

Went to the Fish Place this past weekend - was my second visit. So good! It's one restaurant that I plan to visit each time I visit Fort Mac. I had the stuffed mushroom caps and popcorn shrimp the first visit and they were both really good. This time I had the fishcakes! So good!!! You get four of them... More

Was really curious of trying this place out.. but I don't think I'll return. Pretty vast menu, plenty of selection (you also get a valid choice of meat). But if you decide to go to the fish place for fish.. well.. I wasn't expecting to be almost forced to eat fried fish. Everything was ok, but eating fried entrees and... More

This place was recommended. I'm glad there was a separate sign because I would have missed it. The food was decent and nice size portion. I had the lunch special cod au gratin and fish cakes. The fish cakes were very tasty and seasoned well. The cod tasted good if you smother the tartar sauce on to give it flavor.... More

We have been here many times over the last 6 years. The decor was updated a while ago, and gives a cleaner and fresher view. The food is always good here! Price point is getting high though, and is worth noting. This is the only place to get good east coast fish and meals. I still recommend this as a... More

I understand that this is a fish place, but the food seems extra buttery and greasy! Take away the true flavour of the fish with so much grease or use of eggs on salmon.
