Not a bad place in Timmins. The servers are very prompt and always smiling. The night Manager decide to bring me a few National geographic magazine instead of maybe using my smartphone. I like that.... Be disconnected for a bit The food wasn't too bad.. I had the salmon and I think was a bit over cooked. But overall a... More

Every time I stay or past through Timmins, I manage to eat as the Fish Bowl Restaurant. The first time I ate there was in 2010 and I thank John Lacombe for introducing me to it. I too have introduced many new people to it. The food its fresh, well prepared, tasty, and well-presented. The atmosphere is warm, interesting, comfortable... More

I was in town for business with two other colleagues and we ate at the Fish Bowl at the recommendation of the rental car representative at the Timmin's airport; what a perfect recommendation! We had the best waitress and I feel bad we didn't get her name (long dark hair with the best smile ever). Appetizers were plentiful and really... More

Although the decor is out of date, and they serve their tartar sauce in plastic shot cups, the food is good. The fish and chips, and tartar sauce are excellent. The washrooms are small and dark, and it's very loud inside the restaurant. The plastic is highly inappropriate considering it is more on the fine dining side. The desserts are... More

Was pleasantly surprised at the price. The clam chowder was made in house and was delicious as was the coconut shrimp. Not only it this a seafood restaurant, but, also has steak, chicken and pasta. Also at the table, we order the hot chicken sandwich. All the food was delicious and would recommend this restaurant for those looking for an... More

Upon the suggestion of our hosts, we went to the Fish House at a recent visit to Timmins. Excellent piece of Salmon - cooked to perfection. Everything else, not so much. I sat next to a window that needed replacing, a waitress that got 2 orders incorrect eaten in outdated decor. The place has a great foundation of good food... More

Timmins is very limited when it comes to eating out.. Yes~ we have the Caseys' and Eastsides Etc... but when it comes to something that is freshly made by order,, The Fishbowl is the place to go.. The calamari is by far the best I have ever eaten, The mussels as well, absolutely mouth watering.. If you want a bit... More

This was a very good meal and the staff helpfully accommodated the children - we were two families but they dealt with us very well. I was going to order the salmon, but was encouraged to try pollock, which I hadn't tried before, but is common in Northern Ontario. So I tried it and wasn't disappointed. The one thing is,... More
