There is no Archie's Fish and Chips in Stratford

Not sure why people are writing negative reviews for a restaurant that doesn't exist any more. Do they mean Annie's?

With so many incredible restaurants and talented chefs in Stratford, why anyone would eat here is a mystery. This place (now called Annies) is a dump. Its dingey, un-cared for and totally uninviting. The menu is ludicrously HUGE and this obviously has a negative effect on the ill-trained fry cooks in the kitchen. The food was just honestly gross. The... More

Well the fish was average . The fries were horrible . They were white and soft not golden and crisp as they should be . How can a place that specializes in fish and chips not know how to make fries? No excuse . We got mushy peas as a side and the portion was generous but cold and tasteless... More

Perhaps we've been spoiled with exceptional seafood in Newfoundland, but the food was alright but not exceptional. Place was a bit noisy and crowded and service a tad slow.

This is a chain-type place specializing in seafood--think Denny's with fish. There are lots of fish and shrimp choices on the menu, some grilled or baked, others deep-fried. The tilapia was okay but bland, and the garlic shrimp was tasty. The accompanying rice or baked potato, and the steamed vegetables were typical of chain restaurants. Annie's is one of the... More

We decided to stop on our way home from Cambridge, the place was similar to Archie's but the name was Annie's. Ordered the halibut and chips, what came was over cooked fish and the most disgusting looking fries I have ever seen. They were soft not crisp, black and grey In colour and tasteless. The restaurant is spotlessly clean out... More

Good food for a 'fish and chip' place. Great value for the prices. Staff is courteous and very efficient. The menu offers a good variety with plenty of choice for preparation. The restaurant appears clean and tidy, but the tables are on the small side. We will return.

I have been getting takeout at Annie's regularly for several years now. I like the Atlantic Salmon with sautéed mushrooms and vegetables best. The mixed grill (salmon, halibut and shrimp) is also good.

It's sad, but true. It was much better when it was Archie's. Very rarely ever busy as noted from the almost always empty parking lot out front. Darn my love of halibut!! We chose a day when there were maybe four other people daring to tempt their taste buds. Oh what a mistake that was for us and everyone else,... More

I have never logged to write a review about a restaurant; however, our experience was so poor, I had to write to save others some money. Now I'm no conoisseur of fish and chips; however, half of my family is British so I have had my fair share. I can tell you that without a doubt this was the worst... More
