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?

I crave a fish & chip meal about once a month. Yes, it was hard to find a good one until we took the chance and tried Annie's. Our meal usually consist of a shared Caesar salad, 1 piece halibut and chips and a 2 piece halibut and chip dinner (split 1 piece) and my husband has a beer and... More

My husband and I have eaten at Annie's twice now, after driving past it many times but never stopping in. Weren't we missing out! We've had the cod and the Pollock and loved them both. My fish was made with the gluten free batter, and it was delicious - you would never know the difference. Annie's knows their fish, and... More

We had went there as is hard to find a good restaurant in the area that serves fish and chips. We haven't found one yet as we found the meal was not great and up to standards of a seafood restaurant

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.
