Amazing

Good Food, Good Service and Awesome Prices!!!! The Travelodge staff recommended this restaurant and I am so glad they did. They have fresh, fresh, fresh entrees, fast and efficient service. I have eaten here over 4 times since July and no complaints as of yet.

After reading reviews decided to try this restaurant. One word: GREASY!! My husband and I both chose the fish and chips. Service was good and food arrived rather quickly but what a disappointment. The coleslaw was definitely not homemade; it had an off taste, the skin on fries were sooooo greasy while the fish had a lovely batter but was... More

We ate everything we ordered, I don't believe there's a bad item on the menu. Satisfying, and undeniably fresh sea food, whether you like fish or crustaceans.

Always great food and a very all encompassing menu to suit any taste. Fish is always super fresh, salads are incredible and although I have eaten here more than a dozen times, I have never had a dish I didn't love. Keep up the great work. PS the service here is the best of any establishment in Timmins.

First time to restaurant and would not hesitate to recommend. Great atmosphere and service was excellent. Best fish & chips I have ever had. Have to get the malt vinegar for the fries!! Will be back.

While visiting relatives and celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary we were taken to The Fish Bowl for the evening meal. We had the Haddock, and found that everything was done up exactly as one would wish for! The young girl who waited on us was delightful, and the ladies who operate this establishment visited and chatted with us. Oh yes,... More

Ate here since I was staying in the new Hampton Inn. The hotel provided a complimentary shrimp cocktail voucher so I chose to try it out. The food was okay but they would not honour their own voucher.

Fish and chips is alright. Better than other places in timmins. Shrimp and Alfredo the same really. Ordered a pint rickards and didnt even get full pint... Service takes a while even when only 3 tables full at restraunt and loads staff. Ill give it average but actually feeling in middle of poor to average.

I had heard a lot about the restaurant and finally had the opportunity to try it. Wait staff were not very responsive and the meal was definitely a disappointment. The fish was either old or had been frozen and certainly not what I was looking for. The ambience was certainly satisfactory. Rather doubtful that I would return.

From one visit to another food and service inconsistent. One visit dinner was served cool while on another visit food was excellent.
