Love fish and chips? Then why haven't you tried cooks bay yet. Nice and crisp not oily. Just as fish and chips should be.

We have had fish & chips there a couple of times. There are not many places around for fish & chips anymore. It was a nice treat. A bit pricey but worth it once in a while. I enjoy the halibut most. Thanks!

I had never been but my friend insisted. Very expensive and I was uncomfortable in the atmosphere. Seemed grubby and dirty to me. The food was good but I had a hard time because it felt so run-down. There was no one else in the restaurant the whole time we were there for lunch and I rarely see anyone inside.

Anna was our server, very nice and friendly. However, as other guests have commented, we agree the price is a bit much. Overall, good place for fish and... More

I spend a family day with my son and wanted to try someplace new for us. I heard great things about this place. I beleave the batter makes the flavor after the fish is selected. Had the halibut the batter was nothing special . Will try other places for that flavor I'm looking for.

Very expensive and very greasy. So greasy the kids were complaining about the film on the roof of their mouth. They said it was like when you got lip chap in your mouth. Can't get rid of the film in our mouths. Cost over $40 for 3 pieces of fish and 2 order french fries.

Cook's Bay Fish & Chips is located in a small strip mall, sandwiched between two other restaurants... Little Caesars and Bangkok Saigon Noodle. The restaurant is relatively small, seating some 28 – 30 people without being crowded. Formica covered tables in a clean, bright ambiance with a scattering of nautical themes scattered on the walls. As the restaurant name implies,... More

This place has very good fish and chips! I go here at least once or more every 2 weeks and I can always expect a good, filling meal. The cod and chips lunch special is a great deal during the week! Very affordable. The waitress is very attentive and the tartar sauce is the best one I've ever had.

Had lunch last week, daily special, halibut and chips with a tablespoon of coleslaw and about 12 fries that where not crisp and the fish overbattered ??? Waitress too intent on looking after grandkids to be a good waitress. Typical for any eating establishment in Bradford - average at best - no mystery why fast food chains thrive here.
