Best Fish and Chips! Great Service!

Checked it out based on other reviews and it is well worth the visit. Fresh fish with a great batter. Big portions and good fries. Fantastic tartar sauce and the service is friendly. Well worth the drive out of town. We'll go back again.

Fish and chips are tasty. Get extra homemade tartar sauce! We paid $11-12 for a massive piece of fish and more chips than one should eat. Don't be afraid to split. Beverages are just a short walk to Lone Wolf. They have coffee, water and sodas there.

Have always had wonderful whitefish caught by Dave and masterfully prepared by Alana. This time I enjoyed a feast of pickerel cooked by Alana to perfection. Enjoyed the company of my friends in the covered dining area and a chat with the owners.

My boyfriend and I are not normally fish eaters, however our motel hostess recommended it, and since Whitefish is a speciality in the area we figured we'd give it a try. First, they catch their fish fresh EVERY DAY! They are the only ones in the area who do this. The price was very reasonable considering that - exactly $22... More

We come here every time visitng Tobermory - Love the light thin crispy batter and fresh juicy fish (not your typical frozen kind). It simply is delicious. The price is $11 now but it's worth it. We stopped this time for a 4pm snack after the hike, and we were full for the entire evening. I would recommand this over... More

Hands down, the best fish and chips place in Tobermory. We never, ever miss to go here while in Tobermory. We look forward to having their white fish and chips every summer. The fish is the freshest and the fries "yummy" good. Look out for their cute truck along Hwy 6. Can't wait to go this year - Canada Day... More

The fresh local white fish is battered with an amazing blend of spices! Ate there twice & have never been disappointed! There is also a really cute girl who works in the smoke shop!
