Great atmosphere. Not your typical chain place. Large variety for everyone including a wide variety of non seafood dishes

Great assortment not just fish, chicken, beef and veggies choices. Service is always friendly and fast...portions are generous and the desserts are hard to resist. Great for romance but also family friendly. Been a patron since it was a chip stand .. Many years ago. Nice drink list...very food martinis.

We thoroughly enjoy dining at the fish bowl with family. It has a very nice ambiance. Ask for dining in the front room. Best times is a little later in the evening(7:30-8pm) when it is quieter. Service is very good. Love the fish & chips(Sub a salad) special.

One of the nicer restaurants in Timmins, the selection isn't only fish but also some nice pastas. I have been many times and would certainly go again.

The Fish Bowl always offers a friendly atmosphere with good food at a decent price. The service is polite and is some of the best that you will get in Timmins. The fish and chips are excellent, but food other than seafood is also well-prepared.

For a fish restaurant, they encourage you to order anything but fish. From the sign outside to the fry hut, they don't want to serve fish. I ordered fish anyway and there was very little taste, lacking any kind of spice or sauce. But you definitely pay a lot. I will look for another place to spend my $100.

They have a great wine selection, and mouthwatering desserts. Amazing service and a clean, homey atmosphere. Always a great escargot getaway. I come here all the time, hidden gem in Timmins. Never a bad experience and highly recommended to anyone.

I've been visiting Fish Bowl with my Husband for over a year. It use to be one of our favourite restaurants in town, but lately we've found the food disappointing. First of all, I normally request for my seafood to be grilled. Although this has never posed any problems before, when I asked my waitress for my seafood platter to... More
