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.

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
