There is nothing more pleasurable when it comes to fish. This place nails it!

Fresh fish cooked perfect, no salt, just done the way fish should be. I go to Minors all of the time. I write this review and wish I could be there now ordering the 5 pc Pickeral dinner. No other place can say they caught the fish this morning. They can :)

I find the best thing here is the fresh lake fish you can take home in season. I like the mild flavour of Lake Erie Pickerel better than what we catch up north in Ontario. Dipped in flour and fried in butter this is a wonderful tasting fish. We always check to see if any is available when we visit... More

I just love this place, my 96 year old Grandmother asks for the fish at Minor's on a regular basis, she just loves how fresh it is and I love how reasonable it is. In the summer it is fun to sit on the little patio, but they have takeout all winter long. THe fresh cut fries are very nice... More

But lousy service ... cannot beat the taste of the fish so take it to go and serve yourself as they will never get around to it if you are sitting on their patio.

Every time I've been in the Welland canal area I have visited this restaurant and every time I've gotten the perch dinner. What a great value and so good! Homemade coleslaw and tartar sauce, the best I've ever had. The fries are good and drinks are always cold. They do serve beer now as well, just don't expect craft beer.... More

If you want good fish and seafood Minor Fisheries is the place to go. Whenever I'm in town I make sure I find time to eat there. It is hands down my favorite place in the world.

We visited the Minor Fisheries on August 22, 2015. This is a great place to eat fresh fish. They sell fresh and smoked fish. There is coffee, beverages and ice cream available as well. We ate perch (they did not have pickerel), freshly cut fries, and coleslaw that were delicious. The store staff is very friendly and quick. There are... More

We had supper here tonight before heading over to the Thursday Cruise Night show (something worth catching, by the way). 2 pieces of fish and chips was $5.25! And "2 pieces" turned out to be 4 small pieces. The fish and hand cut chips both had great flavour. Batter on the fish was thin and crispy. It's a bare bones... More

It's worth the hype - nice simple fish (pickeral or perch) that allows the freshness to shine! The popcorn shrimp (clearly not local) are also great. Grab some fries and sit by the canal or on their patio - a real tradition that lives up to the billing.
