First time trying out the Battered Fish in the Halifax Shopping Centre food court - nice portion, tasty food and a nice option for fresh fast food. The fries were a little thin and the price was a tad on the high side - $9 for 1 piece of fish and fries with a bottle of water but I would... More

Imagine a place where you are served a thick cut, juicy portion of battered fish, with hand cut shoestring fries or alternate side, in a cute red and yellow box with amazing homemade tarter sauces and curry mayo! Simply the best! Scallops are incredible! They have various locations across Halifax, Sackville, Dartmouth and Bedford. They are now also in the... More

I ate at the battered fish at the Halifax shopping centre food court! What a great surprise, my mother, sister and I all agreed that it was one of the best meals we've ever had! Amazing fresh fish and French fries. I would definitely recommend the beer battered fish and chips!

In the land of fish and chips the Battered Fish is just okay. The thing I do not like about them the most is their small die cut fries. They are smaller than mcCain shoestring potatoes. I understand that they do this so that they cook faster but they also make things so much oilier. The fish was fresh but... More

Halifax is a place I go to bar-hop, so by the end of the night I can never really remember which bars we went to, and we drank, but I always remember to get some battered fish in me before I head out drinking. As I travel on a budget, I tend to avoid ordering entrees at the bars, so... More

I've reaten here many times and it's a typical take-out outlet that is quite busy at peak traffic times but is consistently good and reasonably priced. I'll keep coming back - when the weather is good so one can enjoy their lunch on the outside picnic tables.

Stopped here on a cruise and wandered the waterfront for a while. When I saw this little fish shack I knew I had to stop for a bite. The fish tasted so fresh, the batter not heavy at all. With a little lemon and tartar sauce...yum! The fries could have been a little crispier but we're still good. Totally worth... More
