She said she would let the kitchen know and after being served, came back to check on their satisfaction. I had the halibut and was happy with the size... More

Advertised as one of the best in Canada and I agree. Fish was amazing, service great, good value. Only complaint is that it was extremely cold in the restaurant

Food was excellent. But we are spoiled as our Fish and Chips place is a lot cheaper. We went there for lunch and paid an average of $14 for a meal.

My wife spend the weekend in Port Elgin and I were told this was the best place in the country for F&C. We waited outside for 15 minutes with other customers to get a seat. The service was good and the place was clean. The fish was ok but too small (about 4 inches square) for what we paid. The... More

Lord Elgin is the best fish & chips in Ontario, I believe. Good prices, good food, and the fish always fresh and tasty.

Love the fish here! Back to cottage country for another vacation and of course had to stop in here for a meal! This time the place wasn't crazy busy as we went at lunch.Even though there were hardly any people inside the waitresses weren't all standing around talking as they were cleaning tables, vacuuming the floors and just keeping busy....

I was there for dinner recently and was very disappointed to discover they are no longer offering the New Zealand Redfish. My husband and I have been going there for 10 years about 4-5 times a year, but this was the first time in many months for us. I noticed the menu had been revised and saw it now offers... More

It is sometimes difficult to find fish and chips that are cooked properly but not the case at The Lord Elgin. The halibut and cod as well as the chips were prepared to perfection. The fish was very flaky and the batter light. Our friendly server told us that the owner has his own recipe for the batter and he... More
