“FOR FISH THIS IS THE PLACE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

If you are looking for a good fresh fish restaurant, this is the place to go, they do the most amazing Fish and Chips and the price is so reasonable.

“Worst service imaginable”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We went to the King Fisher in George on a Wednesday night for the sushi special. We've been there in the past quite a few times, but the last time the service was so bad that I will not be returning. The waiter was unfriendly from the start, never returning to ask if we needed more drinks. At the end of the evening I asked if I could have four tiny pieces of sushi in a doggy bag and he refused, stating that they do not do take aways. I understand that they do not want to do the specials as take aways, but this was a doggy bag of food I already paid for, after eating 90% of what I ordered. It was not an eat as much as you can special and we were not informed that we have to eat everything when we ordered. It was also disturbing that all the tables that arrived after us got their food before us.
