VERY GOOD EATS

My parents had a fish and chip shop and two of my Dad's uncles also had fish and chip shops. I have also had fish and chips in the Dolphin Café which is located on the fish docks in Peterhead, Scotland. The Dolphin Café is considered to serve the best fish and chips in the UK.

Yes, it's a fish-and-chips place, but it is really nice to have nice fresh fish that is HAND-battered and cooked while you wait. Often in the area, the fish is over fried until there is no flavor or moistness left - not here... the fish is cooked perfectly. The homemade tartar sauce makes the flavors pop perfectly. An added bonus... More

This was our first visit to Ye Olde English Fish & Chip since it re-opened after being partially demolished by some moron driving drunk last fall. I'm happy to say that the fish and chips are still yummy, and the wait-staff still pleasant! I had my usual two-piece halibut and chips and was not disappointed. They do a nice job... More

We had take out from here and it was delicious! The fish wasn't too bready and even though we brought it home, it wasn't soggy. The fries were great.

Fish was very good but fries were hard--overcooked. Upgrades to restaurant was an improvement.Cook and wait staff were very welcoming and efficient. Many "takeouts"were served while we were there. Will return and will complain about the fries if applicable.

This is such a quaint little place. Home-cooked meals and the most delicious pies you've ever tasted. Batter fried fish of all kinds are available and there is always a special of the day, like roast pork dinner or ribs etc. The place is decorated in anything nautical with fish nets adorned with starfish, crabs, fish, etc. You can also...

During a difficult time we went to eat after seeing this place in the paper. Looked a little sketchy but the food was amazing. Best chowder I have ever had. Fish was amazing. So much food had to take leftovers. Nice people there.

I have eaten at this restaurant twice with my family that lives in the area and can't wait for another trip east to visit again. My dad has followed this business through several moves and knows the quality of the consistent meals.

Fish and chips very, very average but more than anything, the place needs to be scrubbed down (maybe try washing the floors once in awhile)!

This is the best fish and chips I have ever had. The decor is quaint, the staff are friendly and the fish is to die for! Any chance I have to drop in I take. If it were a little closer to Montreal it will be that much nicer!
