I went to lunch with my mother because both of us love seafood. And we both love a good plate of fish and chips. My mother suggested we try this place because she had seen some ads for it recently.
The restaurant is small and a bit cramped. Since I had my 1 year old daughter with me, I had to bring her stroller. And pushing it by the chairs and tables was a bit challenging.
Everything was neat and clean. The menu wasn't extensive but it never has to be in order for the food to be good. Our waitress came and took our drink orders. I also requested a high chair for my daughter which she brought. However, by the time we finally sat down, she was standing and requesting our orders before we had a chance to look at the menu.
I ordered the battered halibut with a garden salad. My mother ordered the breadcrumb halibut with a Caesar salad. As we were waiting, my mother mentioned to me that this place received some great reviews so we were really looking forward to some great fish.
When our entrees arrived, we dove in. Unfortunately, we were sadly disappointed. My battered fish was chewy like chicken and not good at all. Because of the chewiness, I suspected the fish had been previously frozen and probably cooked from its frozen state immediately. The tartar sauce tasted like it came from a jar. The salad was extra, extra large iceberg lettuce leaves with three slices of cucumber and only 2 small pieces of tomato. The raspberry vinaigrette dressing was really sweet and tasted like fruit punch.
My mother said her fish was very chewy as well and her Caesar salad consisted of only lettuce with no croutons, bacon or cheese. The dressing barely existed too.
We ate our entrees and asked for our bill. We went to use the washroom down a very narrow hallway (again challenging because of the stroller). The bathroom was clean but sadly no change table was available for me to change my daughter on.
All in all, definitely not a place I would visit again. I've had much better fish at a regular pub and at other fish and chip places. And they will continue to receive my business.
