Description: Newfoundland's famous Fish & Chips. Celebrating 60 years in business, and is still run by the 2nd & 3rd generations of Barbours. All fresh products (except for the off fishing season) Ches's prides itself on having the best quality food that can be found. (example they hand select their "chip" potato from 6-7 samples each week for color, texture and taste)We hope to see you soon.

“Greasey”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The food has gone downhill, there was a time when Ches's was the only place to have a fish and chips, but I have found that the last couple of years that the quality of the food has taken a toll for the greasiest, I've eaten

“Not worth going unless for cold beer”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

We had heard a lot about this place and decided to check it out. The batter on the fish and chips is really thick and the meal is more oily than average. Service was amazing though. And the local beer was fabulous and served with chilled glass!

“Fish and Chips”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Come hungry. The portions are massive. The batter was crispy and the chips were fresh cut. Really nice and fresh fish.
