“Great fish and chips, mediocre service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

If you're in Quesnel and having a fish and chip craving the Wee Chippie should be your destination of choice. The fish and chips were excellent, and the all you can eat deal is a really great value. The Wee Chippie isn't a fine dining establishment so I didn't expect much in the way of atmosphere and you shouldn't either. It's very dated inside, and doesn't have the most inviting vibe. I wasn't impressed with the service. The waitress was friendly, but not very attentive. It's hard to enjoy all you can eat fish and chips when the waitress hardly comes around to see if you want more! I would eat at the Wee Chippie again, the negatives don't outweigh the absolutely delicious fish and chips, but they really need to work on their service.

“Great food, Bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We (family of 5) arrived after the supper rush was over, the restaurant was practically empty and uncomfortably warm. There was one fan set up to try to cool the room, but it wasn't helping. I think their A/C was broken?
The waitress pointed us to a table in the corner and said she'd be over in a bit. She brought us our menus, some of which were falling apart, and had us help her lay out the cutlery.
We had a few questions about the menu and the waitress wasn't exactly knowledgeable about much of anything. eg - we asked her what the difference was between cod and halibut and her answer was, "They're different types of fish." Oh really???!
She took our drink orders and brought out 4 of the 5 drinks right away. My son had to wait about 10 min for his milkshake.
The food was hot and fresh and delicious! But after we got our food, we were pretty much forgotten about even though the restaurant was empty. A few of the waitresses friends came in for a visit and at that point I think the few remaining customers became a nuisance to her. We overheard a few uncalled for sighs and other odd sounds expressing her frustration - we're not sure if it was directed towards her friends or towards her customers, but it all seemed VERY unprofessional.
After we were done eating we waited about 10 min while she continued to chat with her friends - she never asked us if we wanted anything else and never came back to see if we wanted more to drink. Eventually, I took a plate of food over to her, that we wanted wrapped up, and asked if we could get the rest to go.
The food was great, but the service was terrible! Next time, I think I'd get take-out.

“A late lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We arrived after the lunch rush, and maybe it was our timing, but we weren't impressed. The portions were large and the service friendly, but overall we our experience was average. My husband never received his drink, we had to wait for the bill, and the food was just okay.

“Almost like home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Visiting from the UK and saw the name of this place and stopped for lunch one day. The food was delicious and reminded us of our chippie back home. It was fun to find this place in Quesnel.
