Heard a lot of good things but nothing to write home about

I spend a family day with my son and wanted to try someplace new for us. I heard great things about this place. I beleave the batter makes the flavor after the fish is selected. Had the halibut the batter was nothing special . Will try other places for that flavor I'm looking for.

I had never been but my friend insisted. Very expensive and I was uncomfortable in the atmosphere. Seemed grubby and dirty to me. The food was good but I had a hard time because it felt so run-down. There was no one else in the restaurant the whole time we were there for lunch and I rarely see anyone inside.

We visited on a Thursday. It was very quiet which we liked. The fries were very good, made from real potatoes. The fish was,batter was lite and not over saturated with grease. Anna was our server, very nice and friendly. However, as other guests have commented, we agree the price is a bit much. Overall, good place for fish and... More

Very expensive and very greasy. So greasy the kids were complaining about the film on the roof of their mouth. They said it was like when you got lip chap in your mouth. Can't get rid of the film in our mouths. Cost over $40 for 3 pieces of fish and 2 order french fries.

Cook's Bay Fish & Chips is located in a small strip mall, sandwiched between two other restaurants... Little Caesars and Bangkok Saigon Noodle. The restaurant is relatively small, seating some 28 – 30 people without being crowded. Formica covered tables in a clean, bright ambiance with a scattering of nautical themes scattered on the walls. As the restaurant name implies,... More

This place has very good fish and chips! I go here at least once or more every 2 weeks and I can always expect a good, filling meal. The cod and chips lunch special is a great deal during the week! Very affordable. The waitress is very attentive and the tartar sauce is the best one I've ever had.

Had lunch last week, daily special, halibut and chips with a tablespoon of coleslaw and about 12 fries that where not crisp and the fish overbattered ??? Waitress too intent on looking after grandkids to be a good waitress. Typical for any eating establishment in Bradford - average at best - no mystery why fast food chains thrive here.

We love fish and chips and tend to be picky about them, especially when it comes to fries. The fish was perfect - cooked nicely and a decent portion - and the fries were excellent. The waitress was wonderful, very attentive and friendly. We plan to make this one of our regulars.

This used to be our favourite place for fish and chips but I don't know what happened. The fish was dry, the fries tasted as if they had been kept for a long time and re-heated. Even the cole slaw was not as good.
