We have visited and had take out from this restaurant for a while now. Clean, good location, always good service. Not fancy, but good. On hockey night it is busy, get there early. When we started visiting here a while back the servings were surprising large. We usually order the haddock and chips. The plate was loaded with chips and... More

Been coming here for lunch about once a month for the last few years. It's perhaps one notch up from a fast food place, with somewhat of a diner type atmosphere (ie booths as well as tables). The regular special is two pieces of fish and the usual chips for about 10 bucks. The food is consistent and good quality... More

It may be located in a strip mall but the restaurant and meal are well in line with what was expected. The price and the proportion was great.

Good value for money. Dinner for 2 under $25 + tip. Not a fancy place with a lot of "ambient decor" but it does have good service with friendly staff. Will go there again.

Service was very prompt and friendly waiter. Ordered the salmon fish and chips. Never had salmon before for fish and chips. I was very good. Batter was golden and crispy. Tarter sauce is at your table, so was nice to pour as much as you like. It was good quality for the price, which was reasonable.

Reasonable prices for great fish and chips served with a smile. I don't worry about decoration - it's all about the food. My standard is the plate served by a small Scottish take-out in Toronto.; just like Edinburgh ! There are two locations for Digbys now and both are convenient. Enjoy !

I recently had an opportunity to dine at your location on Earl Grey Drive. My sister and I were debating where to go for true English style fish and chips, either LaPointe or The Glenn being that we were closer to the Glenn we thought about going there but for the fact they do not serve halibut, we new their...

My wife and I were in the mood for seafood for a quick supper. Rather than go the "Red Lobster" route, we tried Digby's. This place used to be called Joey's Only Seafood but changed about a year ago. Service was prompt and polite. The maritime motif and decor are unmistakeable. They offer as expected the usual choices( 10-12 types... More
