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.

In Timmins for business. Had dinner here with my boss (a senior exec in his 70s with fairly discerning standards, from Toronto) and three colleagues from another company (one from Toronto, two from Timmins) for a few drinks and early dinner (we arrived at 4pm). Our colleagues from Timmins commented that this is the best local restaurants to eat at,... More

We love Fish and Chips and so are rather picky about them. We searched for F&C online before leaving Sudbury. That was actually much easier than finding the restauratnt itself as the sign doesn't stand out. The staff were really friendly and (the mark of any decent F&C) they do have malt vinegar. The fish was fresh, the batter very... More

The food is good and the prices are fair. I've only been there once but I will be back and I would recommend it to anyone that likes seafood.
