Here is a small restaurant on a side street that you would miss in a blink, but if you are looking for great fish'n chips, this is the place. There are no frills here, no fancy tables, no ambiance, just fish 'n chips!!! Haddock, halibut, plus shrimp, scallops, even pies to take home. There are also daily specials: today was... More

We ordered for delivery. The fish was okay but the thing that was gross was the fact that there was a black hair in the tartar sauce, we immediately stopped eating! Never again!!!

While travelling in Ontario from New Brunswick, I searched out a few fish and chip shops that I could stop at on the way. I can't get Halibut in the Maritimes. I stopped here on my way in and then again on my way out of Ontario. Both times the meal was excellent, not greasy at all, a very good... More

I never eat in as I like beer with my fish and chips. These guys have beer ads all over but no license. Anyway I order it to go home where there is beer. The food is always bang on. This is not sophisticated stuff. It is a big slab of deep fried fish with a big side of chips.... More

Heading over to Cornwall from Montreal because this place came recommended by a friend and seeing it was Good Friday, well why not!! We were not disappointed. I had the Haddock and it was light and flaky and cooked perfectly. It's not much to look at but the food was delicious. Also, took home frozen meat pies and they did... More

Charming little place with surprisingly good food. Atmosphere a little dated but the eating makes up for it along with the size of the portions.

This quaint little place has the best fish and chips in Cornwall and we'll worth the visit . Price is right and serving size is right.

I've eaten here twice and agree with most reviews that the portions are enormous and so, better to share a plate and reorder if you want more. I've had the cod, halibut and haddock among myself and my family. We find the batter crisp and light but a bit tasteless. The fish is okay. I believe it is cooked from... More
