My husband & I stopped in Tor's Fish & Chips last year ,2010. They had an ad for their fried Halibut sandwich!! We were vacationing for a week in this area and ate at Tor's Fish & Chips 3-4 times in that week. Absolutely the best in Orillia. No reason to try any other place. We sat with Doreen,owner, for quite a while during one of our visits. Very nice and hard working. I do hope she is doing well.

Best clam chowder around.

Every Wednesday the owners mother makes a fresh batch of chowder. She starts at six am and slowly creates the heavenly chowder over the next five hours. Often sold out. Not cheap, but worth every penny!

We ordered fish and chips for my grandfather's birthday and the fries were barely edible they were so greasy (you squeezed them and some grease came out they were THAT greasy). Fish was decent fish, but the batter was greasy and chewy. Reading the reviews this was not at all expected, so I don't know if they were having a... More

Regular visit... To Tor's for Great Fish & Chips. Always excellent, big pieces of mouth watering Halibut. Fries are fresh cut. Side salads are excellent. this is just an all-around, neat but plain restaurant. We are never disappointed here.

Traditional English style fish and chips at the foot of Mississaga Street. Generous helpings at a fair price. Don't forget to order coleslaw or mushy peas. !0 percent off on Wednesdays for seniors. Nice décor and quick service.

Had takeout from here the other night. Ordered two of the haddock & chips meals (with one of them having an extra piece of fish). The fish were large pieces, and the fries were home fries (most likely cut onsite) which were bountiful. Although the meal was good, the fish was a little more greasy than I was expecting which...

Had the pleasure of having the Halibut and Chips. Best fish and chips I've ever had and I've I've had many many meals all over Canada. Everything is made fresh. Excellent Cole slaw and tartar sauce, both home made. If you are ever in Orillia make a point of trying this restaurant, which is also spotless.
