Loved the fish, fries and coleslaw. Nice hot water for tea and nicely cooked and seasoned halibut for my gluten free sister. The waitress was wonderful and was very surprised when we told her that she talked just like Anne Murray, who she had never heard of! When I found Anne on youtube and played it for her, she was...

Very happy that their halibut was wild and not farmed. Not too much batter which is good. Food was served nice and hot!

A very busy restaurant - Loved by the cottages as well as the locals. Everyone's favorite - fish and chips - very full plate - usually enough left over to take home for tomorrow's lunch.

This is our go to local for fish and chips. Reasonable prices as well as prompt service. Also a nice selection of beer including a few local microbreweries. Reservations a good idea.

Meals were all good. It is a very busy place and tends to be loud. It was a Friday night and at times we had to yell to hear each other. The fish and chips are still the best items on the menue.

They assured us it was not a problem and had us seated within 5 minutes. We had the P.E.I mussels, which were cooked perfectly. The fish and chips were amazing. My... More

Some friends in Bobcaygeon introduced us to this little gem in Bobcaygeon. Though I didn't indulge in any of fish, I saw a lot of smiling faces. They had the obligatory veggie burger or alfredo for us vegetarians, but it was the steak and seafood this place was obviously known for as diners were lineup outside waiting to be seated.... More
