Delicious fish, but slow counter service. Adding additional counter help during peak times would definitely speed things along.

The pickerel was cooked perfectly with a crunchy panko/bread crumb type coating. A bit of a dive but is totally an old fashioned take-out fish & chip joint. Reminds me of the West coast where I'm from. Great with a beer on their patio. Save some for the birds hanging around.

I'll start by saying that because I'm English nearly all my fish experience has been sea fish. So, I researched this place a little, plus asked the nice young server, and decided on the pickerel. Very impressed I have to say. First time in my life for this. This is really set up as a take-out place with a patio... More

If you want Fresh caught Pickerel and Perch this is the place. If you like Fish and Chips you will love it. No thick batter done just right.. Try it out.

So as I believe it they bring the fish right off the boat at the dock, the friend who introduced me believes the place to be amazing. I take my wife there and she said it was OK. I enjoyed it, it's small but in the summer I think they may have a patio. I would go there again

We are somewhat regulars, and they never disappoint. Service is always quick, fish always fresh and very well prepared. This is not fancy, by any stretch, but the fish is top notch and the beer is cold. Always a great, inexpensive meal.

The busiest shop on West St.from Spring to Fall is Minor Fisheries. One look at the outdoor patio will tell you how popular our "go to fish store" is. Selection is good, prices are reasonable and service is attentive. We are proud to have Minor's in our community.

In the Niagara area going for Fish and Chips (particularly on a Friday night) is "a thing" or a tradition. It's Friday and you just know what you're going to have for dinner. Minor's have been around for years, they are the supplier of fresh fish for lots of other restaurants in the area. Perch or Pickerel dinner is the... More
