“Too Greasy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Not sure why, but their fish can often be greasy. Portions are good. I think the key is to go in on a fish and chip day, (Friday) early when fat is hot and there are not too many fish cooking.

“Out go to place for take out fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

We order take out fish and chips from here about once a month. The food is always ready within 20 minutes after placing the order and the quality is consistent. We usually order the haddock and it is very good. They have a fish platter, which has large shrimp and scallops along with the fish, it is delicious. It is a family business, using traditional British recipes, and is consistently busy, which speaks for itself.

“Great fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

The best fish and chips anywhere in Niagara. The place isn't very fancy, but who cares when the food is that good!

“Best fish around!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

I've tried the halibut and haddock many times and both are great. Not to greasy, batter is crisp and light. Halibut seems to got smaller over the years: (. Cheese balls are a good app too. Washroom on the other side of the kitchen Is weird, so stick to takeout.

“Best fried fish in the area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

We travel to St. Catharines every Labor Day weekend, and my parents arrive there for the entire week beforehand. We always order takeout at the Fryin' Guys at least twice during our visit, and my parents order it several additional times. It is delicious! I love their English-style batter, which is SO difficult to find here in the U.S. The customer service is excellent, as well. We have tried fish and chips in the surrounding towns, as well, and Fryin' Guys is always our favorite.
