We went here with a friend who raved this was the best fish and chips in the world. After one bite I cannot believe the reviews for this place are so positive. The fish is prebattered and then cooked for a few minutes when ordered. Fish should be battered to order and be thin and crispy. But then the batter... More

It was one of the best fish and chips I have had in a long time. There was no place to sit but we went to the park nearby and enjoyed the scenery.

We make a trip to Brockville just for Don's fish and chips and then we go to one of the beautiful parks and have a relaxing picnic, every summer.

This place has been around for years. Its take out only but there is a park nearby to sit and enjoy your meal. They wrap the fish in Newspaper just like they did when I was a child and we had Fish on Friday nights. The fries are fresh cut and delicious. One piece of fish with fries is more... More

Told it was popular place with good fish and chips. We went in and saw fish and chips going in the deep fryers. But, its take out only, no seating. To hot to eat outside that day so we missed out.

Only a pick up place. Got our grub and walked over to a neighbouring park by the water and enjoyed great food and beautiful views. The fish portions were a little inconsistent in size between all of us however even the smallest piece was good enough and the fish was fresh and not processed. They serve both cod and haddock....

Long line up and far too much dough. The fish took up only half of the piece. Fries are excellent though. Parking is difficult as Brockville is an old city with quirky streets. Best to park at municipal lot and walk a block.
