Best Fish 'n Chips in Barre!!!

We really love the halibut, and fresh cut fries, the restaurant is very clean, the wait staff is quick, and polite, and the Fish and Chips are the best I've had. Try the "Two and a Few". Two pieces of nicely battered halibut, with a few fresh cut fries. Always busy, very popular. Quick tip...go... read more

Come early, especially if it is a Friday night. We were glad we did. By the time we left around 6:00 there was a line at the door waiting for a table and a longer one waiting for take-outs. The menu was simple. Choices of halibut, cod, and haddock fish fry plus shrimp and scallops. Once we chose our seafood... More

If you're looking for a restaurant that serves traditional fish and chips then this is the place you are looking for. The atmosphere won't blow you away, but the meal will.

So we had to prove that Trip Advisor was right! Danny's kept coming up as top rated and I have to say I agree. Setting and decor are a bit cafeteria like, but I think that allows the staff to concentrate on the food. My son and I both tried the Halibut and chips and they were outstanding. Batter was... More

Had not been down in the south end of Barrie and decided it was time for the best again. Halibut and chips are tops. Very friendly staff. Lemon pie filling was great. The pastry was not the best.

Fish and chips is a hard dish to do well - many try and most fail. Danny's in Barrie reminds us what this dish should taste like! Crispy, light batter, flakey but moist haddock and home made fries - perfect. Even it's location in a modest strip mall seems true to tradition. The staff are cheery and helpful. Health food...

This place serves the best fish in chips in Barrie, and is my short list for best I have had in Canada. Be prepared to wait if you go on Friday or Saturday night, and if you call in take out it always takes longer than you are quoted (I find they don't start making it until you get there).... More

We are thankfull that Danny's moved from Innisfil to South End Barrie. Dining in we enjoy the excellent Ceasar Salad and Creamy Cole Slaw. We only order Halibut and Chips, so can not offer comment on other menu offerings. Service is excellent. We often get take out which is fast and friendly.(phone ahead on Fri and Sat) We have lived...

I love their halibut and chips. I've become another regular customer. Only criticism is having to wait an additional 10 minutes when I preordered the food 15 minutes prior

Every time I'm here the restaurant is packed. Not surprising as the fish and chips are delicious. Battered just right and the fries are beauties. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated, very pleasant if you decide to eat in.
