I really enjoyed my haddock and chips with a side a coleslaw. I couldn't give this fish and chips a 5 out of 5 because the coleslaw didn't have much flavour... just cabbage and mayo I think. I also wish the tartar sauce was homemade. It is very reasonably priced though.

I have been here on every visit to Hamilton during the past 4 years. Harry's has great fish and chips. Generous proportions and fast friendly service. Prices are reasonable. You can't go wrong eating here.

Wanted to try a new place because we just haven't found any place with great fish and chips. Checked trip advisor and Harry's Fish and Chips had some great reviews and we were not disappointed!!! Best fish and chips we have had in years! We both ordered the haddock $8.95. Fabulous light and crispy batter, not greasy at all, large... More

I've meant to try this restaurant for a few years, and since I was in the area, I finally had a chance for some takeout. This restaurant offers both dine in and take out, which is very convenient. The front counter staff were very friendly and agreeable to my orders of lightly battered fish. The halibut came as ordered and... More

Saw a review on TV of Harry's Fish and Chips, so went to try them out while we were in Hamilton. Cheerfully greeted at the door at 11 a.m. when they open and were promptly waited on. Our meals arrived quickly and enjoyed by my husband and I. We had the haddock. Really good!

Hands down the best fish and chips in the city. Great portions, and the fish is neither soggy not encased in some hard shell of batter. A little pricey, but well worth it.

A group of six of us went on a Friday night about 6:00. We had to wait about 15 minutes to get seated as the place was busy. All but one of us ordered the Halibut and chips, the other guy got the Captain's platter with Haddock, clams and shrimp. My wife and her sister are both from Britain, and... More

I can't believe I've never been to Harry's before. My hubby has brought it home in the past but I'm not partial to fish and chips take out as it loses the crispness. My fave place is in Oakville as you can eat in. I did not realize Harry's is eat in as well. Cute little spot on Hamilton Mountain... More

The fish at Harry's has a nice light and super crispy batter. The fish is never soggy. The fries are also great- Nice and hot and fresh. It's one of the best places in Hamilton for traditional fish and chips. It's pretty small inside but don't worry, the tables empty quick as the service is very fast (and always friendly!)... More

I felt that the portion size was good and was impressed at first. However when I got home I found the 1 and a bit piece of fish ( halibut and chips) was thin and wasn't good value for money. The oil in which the fish and chips was fried tasted a bit overused. The flavour in the chips seemed... More
