“Great Fish and Chips”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

When travelling we always try to find local restaurants. The Fish Bowl in Timmins was a great choice. They told us that their fish and chips is what got them started in 1976 and is still their signature dish. We were really glad we tried it and can understand why their reputation has been built on this dish.

The other menu items look great and it appears that there is something for any budget. The decor of this restaurant is pleasant and the staff are welcoming.

If you are looking for a seafood restaurant in Timmins, we're happy to recommend this restaurant.

“Love the decor and menu”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

i am a seafood-aholic and so glad to have a good menu with lobster, crab, mussels, shrimp, etc being offered at a reasonable price. The menu has changed over the years but this one strikes me as a winner. Excellent desserts too and the service is good too.

“Yummy food and wine.”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Fish is done properly here. Nice menu, good specials. Really enjoyed ourselves. Good service too. Although not exactly fancy decor and the dessert menu could use a spruce up, but passable.

“Could be much better”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

Many years ago, this was a nice quaint, not too expensive place for a family to get home made fish and chips. Now it expensive, pretentious and they've lowered their food quality. Won't be back.
