Excellent take out fish and chips.............cod or haddock.....the old fashioned way, take it out to the park near the river and feast in the great outdoors. We never visit Brockville without visiting Don's. Bravo!

Okay, Don's is nowhere near the best of what you'd find in most British or Scottish villages (for one thing most of them have access to really, really fresh fish and the best ones use peanut oil to cook) but it's pretty good and has become a bit of a tradition for us - get some Don's and sit down...

Stopped in for lunch and was very pleased with the service and the food. The haddock was nicely done without being greasy. Would recommend to anyone passing through to give them a try. Well worth it

This efficient little operation has been around for many, many years. It was opened by Don and now operated by his son. The menu is comprised of haddock and soft fries. Pair that with a Stewart's or a beer from the Store across the street, and you have the ingredients for a nice lunch at the nearby park overlooking the... More

Don's is a Brockville favourite. For my family it is almost a summertime family tradition to grab Don's fish and chips and head on down to Blockhouse. I have had to go gluten free so can no longer enjoy but still remember how good it tastes!

Best in Town. Friday nights are really busy. Call ahead to place your order. Enjoy them by the water front is a winning combination!

Very pleasant people work there, the food is typical take out. The English style fish is good but not large portion. Their fries are sometimes over cooked and I hate getting the crumbly little pieces of potato that are hard but at least its not frozen fries that would be cheaper to make at home.

During a recent business trip I had the chance to visit several restaurants. One of my lunches was at Don's - a no-nonsense take out Fish and Chip shop. There were several choices in the kind of fish available - cod and haddock if I remember. Fish was fried just right - with no stale taste to the oil they... More

If you're looking for authentic fish n' chips, this is the place for you. During the summer it's crazy busy, so bring your patience. The food is worth the wait.
