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.

For years I've been going out of my way just to get some fresh fish from Minor Fisheries. I can't put in words how delicious every meal I have had from here is. The fish and chips are just amazing.

This is the best place locally to get a fantastic order of Fish & chips. The also sell freshly caught fish for those who like to cook their own at home. There is a patio on the side of the building and 4 tables in side. Hint: If you go there try to go about 11:15 before the noon hour... More

Visited Minor Fisheries Restaurant in Pt. Colborne recently. The temperature was very hot. I love this restaurant.......it is VERY VERY casual but has the real feel of an ocean side restaurant. We were hoping to have Pickerel; however, they were out of Pickerel this particular day...no problem, we had the family size Perch Dinner which includes French Fries and Cole... More

You can't beat Minor's for fresh fish. They own the boats that catch the fish, the plant that processes it and the shack that sells it. The perch and pickerel are both delicious every time, served in a nice light breading and not a heavy batter like a lot of places use. For what you pay you receive a lot... More
