“High quality fast food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Fish is cooked when ordered, so the batter is crisp and not greasy. You have to wait about 5 minutes for your order - but it's worth it to get it freshly fried. And prices are good. Overall, a great value.

“Not Bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I ordered the haddock pieces and fries, I felt there was very little haddock and too many fries but it was tasty and their tarter sauce was yummy. But overall I just kept hearing that I had to try this in Nova Scotia and while it was good, it was nothing special!

“sooo good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Outstanding fish and chips. The haddock was fresh and fried just right. The best I have ever had in a fish and chips place. The fries were OK but forgotten after only a bite of the fish. Keep up the good work on this one.

“Fantastic fresh fish and chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Considering they are serving from a small venue, the quality is fantastic. Not greasy like we're used to in the UK, it was very filling and a reasonable price. Nothing more I can say, fast food with friendly staff.

“Very Good Fish & Chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I actually visited their location in Scotia Square (Halifax) and enjoyed their fish and chips. The haddock had just the right amount of batter (not thick & greasy) and their fries are homemade. Service was great and I appreciated the fact they offered both fountain coke and the traditional bottle (much better!). I will return where the quality is very good not to mention good value for your hard earned dollar!
