We had a coupon for this restaurant, from the hotel we stayed at, so we thought we would give it a try. It was like walking into a 50's diner. So quaint and cute....there were tables to sit at and the server came to take our order. They were super busy, but the food was beyond exceptional. We both ordered... More

These are the best fish and chips around. I had no raw batter on my fish ... that's a real turn-off ... the batter was crispy through out. Chips were great ... I love it that the potatoes are peeled. That's important to me. These are like old style English fish and chips. Don't expect anything else. The other most... More

The fish and the were greasy and certainly not the quality we are used to. Went back a month or so later for take out again and they were so busy that there was over a half hour wait! Obviously, they have a clientele.

My co-worker and I have started eating here somewhat regularly. The food is very good and reasonably priced. Fries could be cooked a little more... Really good fish. Very simple place, cafeteria style. Excellent service, very friendly people. The downstairs washroom is kind of annoying, I would probably give it a 4.5/5 One important feature of this restaurant is the... More

This is a family style mom&pop restaurant. The fish & chips are really good and cost is reasonable. You can eat in or take out.

My sister and I had a late lunch there today. The pollock that we had were large and properly cooked, and there were plenty of fries.The service was friendly and fast. Oh! I forgot to mention the excellent coleslaw. The only complaint was a "walker" is not easy to get in due to the step up from the sidewalk and... More

After a long absence today I went for fish and chips at Mel's. NOW that is how to make fish and chips. Big portions, crisp, excellent service. It may not be a 5 star restaurant but the food -no comparison with the other place on Springbank. Mel should give lessons to the other place on service, portions price and frying... More

Nova Scotia Style Fish n Chips. It's very good however I find the French fries a bit soggy. I keep coming back because it is so delicious.

This place has been around Woodstock for a life time. The fish is always cooked the way it should be for fish and chips, but the atmosphere is nothing special. If you go in the winter, make sure you wear a warm sweater as the place is always cold from people going in and out.

Thank Philip C
