1st time visiting, won't be our last. Flaky light fish, light crispy proper batter, coleslaw was homemade. Fries so so, but don't go for fries, go for the fish!! We will be back next May for sure.

I am in town on business several times a year and always wanted to try this place. I came here for an early dinner. It was already packed, but they had a small table available. I ordered the fish and chips with sweet potato fries and coke slaw ($12.50) along with a Muskoka Cream Ale. I have to admit that... More

Great spot, great food and friendly staff. Went here because I was staying at the Holiday Inn Huntsville, they have a deal where you get 15% off of you show your room key. Was not disappointed. I had the Halibut and Fries with a side of coleslaw. Fantastic meal. Topped it off with some strawberry rhubarb pie, was absolutely delicious.... More

Thank you so much for your review...it certainly helps us compete with the franchise restaurants that have big advertising budgets. People will only take a chance on private run restaurants if they see enough good reviews. Thanks for the help! More

We ate here in early May. This was our second visit here. First off, I like to eat at locally owned restaurants, and Westside is that. I wasn't too hungry and just wanted one piece of halibut and a bowl of soup, and my wife wanted a salad, one piece of fish and fries. When we ordered, the waitress combined... More

My friends and I meet regularly for f&c and rate this place one of the best. The buttermilk batter was tasty if only a little greasy. The chips could have been crisper but the coleslaw was terrific. The pie was excellent!! We will go there again.

Excellent and attentive service in this family style resturant with delicious home style breakfasts to suit every member of the family. The fish and chips make a perfect lunch or dinner.

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to let others know about us. Just to clarify...The Chocolate Macaroon pie was an experiment that went over very well. It won't be one of our pies in the cooler all the time but will certainly be made in rotation with our other specialty pies that we make. Glad... More

This a small independent restaurant with good food and service. It is one of the best fish and chip places and the other food is also excellent. Leave room for desert as the pies are great. This is a must stop place to eat.

Description
Westside Fish and Chips Family Restaurant has been run by the same family since 1979. Although they became famous for hand dipped, hand cut, English Style Fish and Chips the menu is versatile enough for all types and sizes of appetites. One wouldn't think that a fish and chip shop could make a good breakfast and they don't...they make a GREAT breakfast! The BEST Eggs Benny, hand cut and grilled homefries, eggs made to order and much more.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner there is something to please everyone. From picky eaters to vegetarians and those avoiding gluten, you'll find something to like.
Check out the over 500 teapots adorning shelves all over the restaurant and the dozens of Disney and other animated paintings on the ceiling.
