Always incredible!

We have been dining here for 15 years, always delicious fish and chips! Incredible batter, never greasy! The coconut cream pie is heaven on a plate! Yes, there is often a wait on summer evenings but soooo worth it!

Hubby and niece had fish and chips which where incredible. Now we understand why there is always a line up here (make a reservation ) I had steak and potatoes one of the best I have had in bobcaygen. The prices here are great staff super friendly and can't wait to go back here

Always enjoy the fish and chips dinner here. You can get 'mushy peas' for the true British experience. Thoughtful staff brought a sweater when we had Oma with us; they moved us to a table farther from the AC as soon as one became available. Much appreciated.

Nothing overly fancy here, but the Halibut was outstanding and the prices very reasonable (considering the price of Halibut in the grocery store these days...)

Returned here for lunch on Sunday, and once again, had a fabulous meal. I had Liver and onions, while my wife had Halibut and Chips. The liver was cooked to perfection, and the bacon on it had a subtle smoky note that really added to the flavour. The onions were cooked to a great level of caramelization. My wife, as... More

Visited for the shopping and came across this gem. We arrived at 2pm and place was busy but we got a seat right away. Waitress was very nice and answered our questions well. We started with sangria and fried calamari. Sangria was great deal for half LItre and was tasty but we both missed having fruit in it. Especially at... More

Best to have reservations - we didn't, but the wait was only about 20 minutes. Food was great and they even pan-fried my haddock in garlic butter ( I know it is a 'sacrilege', but I don't like deep-fried!) at no extra charge!

This place is an unexpected pleasure in Cottage Country. Great takeout and even better eat in and reasonable for even our family of 9 without a mortgage. My favorite is the Haddock and Chips but I am a sucker for fried!
