The Halibut is wonderful. They do out of their way to make you happy. The taxing system in Canada is brutal to dining establishments. Considering all involved these people make the best of a bad situation and do their best to keep the customer happy. I really enjoyed my meal. Wish them success into the future.

The food is very good here. Close to the hospital and college in Barrie. The staff are great and the portions generous.

I have been coming to this restaurant several times over the years but Sunday Night was the worst fish and chips I have had in years. There is no taste to the chips you might as well chew on cardboard. the fish was under cooked and the batter was oily. Oh and the air conditioning in the "dining room" sucks.

One would think that at a restaurant which "specializes" in fish and chips would make an effort to sell a quality product, but apparently not. I have had better fish and chips at the bigger corporate chain restaruants in Barrie. The halibut and the batter it was coated in were both very dry and spongy, so ovbiously frozen not fresh....

The fry's were the big fat ones and weren't cooked all the way trough. Halibut was the same, paste taste like they weren't cooked enough either. Wasn't cheap at almost $50 for three people without drinks

This is a family style fish and chip restaurant that provides great value for your eating dollar. Base on my numerous visits, I don't believe you will be disappointed with anything on their menu. Give it a try once and you will be going back frequently.

Tonight we wanted fish and chips for dinner, and went to Fancy's, even after an experience one year ago here that wasn't so good. My husband had been to Fancy's a weeks ago on a work lunch and said it was much better. This time, what a difference. We ordered the Halibut and it was terrific! And if you haven't... More

This restaurant is consistently voted one of Barrie's best. I think not. The food was ok, nothing special. The table was sticky, the walls were splattered, even the person waiting on us had fresh batter smeared on the pants and spots on the shirt. This person may have been also doing the cooking and the dishes since the place was... More

The true test of a "fish & chips" restaurant for me is the quality and taste of their halibut. No halibut, no visit from me. Fancy's Fish & Chips does not disappoint: the halibut is good and they fry it in a very light batter which ends up tasting light and not feeling heavy on the stomach. Add on some... More

A good meal of halibut, chips and mushy peas in traditional British Style top it off with a bowl vanilla ice cream for around $20 a plate.
