“Good”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

I went to the second location by the Fairfield inn and suites. I was there on a day that the fish was fresh and not frozen. The batter is light like tempura batter, that made for a light and crispy coating and not soggy. Food was hot and fresh, what more could you ask for?

“Good Fish and Chips”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Read about this restaurant, and tried it out. Very good service, friendly, and good food. Has a nice family feel to it. The cod fish and chips was great.

“Just Average”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

It was the service that made it for us here. Our waitress was friendly and courteous. The food was typical fish and chip. I had fish and chips and a few places during our stay and this was at the bottom of the list. It was right next door to our hotel so made a quick meal easy to get.

Thank you for your review. I would like to know why you found our fish and chips average compared to others? Was it the batter (as we do not add spices or beer?) your feedback would be greatly welcome. Thank your or your visit and i hope you will dine in with us sometime so you will get the full ches's experience.

“Take out; not the best I have ever had”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Having read a lot about Ches's, we figured that we had try it before we left, so, take out lunch it was. 3 pieces of fish and chips to go.

The strip mall was easy to miss, but once we made the order, it was quite fast, all done within 15 minutes.

To be fair though, we did not eat that right away, but the state of the fries could sum up the whole experience; OK, some burnt, and the oil needed changing. The fish had a good texture but not very juicy.

If this was the "Newfoundland" way of fish and chips. then I would give that a miss.

Thank you for taking the time to send us your review. I am sad to see you would rate us on a take out experience. Take out is never as good as it is not fresh, but none the less i am glad you came to visit. Our batter is so light it shows the taste of the fish and cod is not a juicy fish just a light flaky white fish, as for the oil needing changing i will look into this but our location filter and change the oil daily. The brownness that you say was overdone was likely to the potato this time of the year with the starch turning to sugar, this leads to a unpredictable mixed chip. I hope you will dine in with us in the future and that we will meet all your expectations.
