“Not ready to serve”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Went into the Ches's fish and chips in Gander around noon and they didn't have any chowder or salmon. What kind of restaurant that have items on its menu only to tell customers sorry we don't have that. I was very unimpressed with this location

So sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit to our Gander location. I have to apologize that we did not have the items you were looking for. Unfortunately in the more remote areas of the island our Operators are at the mercy of the suppliers, so if they did not have the fresh product there to make the chowder or salmon then it could not go on the menu at that time. As these are not main menu items there are times that they will sell out rather quickly and then we must wait for the fish, dairy (we make our Chowder from scratch), suppliers to get back with more products.

Thank you for your review... In the future I hope you will return and give Ches’s Gander another try.

“Not bad but definitely not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

Not bad when you're craving fried food as its fast, and has multiple locations around town. The batter tends to be too soggy and they short you on the fries. . . Best Fish & Chips by far is By the Beach (Portugal Cove)
