“Not so bad.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Went here with my family last July for dinner and we almost left because the place was so busy and we couldn't find a table for our huge group.

We ended up ordering the Family Fish and Chips platter. The fish was a bit oily but you can tell it was fresh which was good. We were a bit disappointed, however, that they don't make their own house special tartar sauce and instead, provide us with Kraft ones.

I don't recommend ordering the poutine though. I found it to be a bit salty. Plus it was pretty disappointing to find the cheese curds not at all melted.

“Good and Fast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

WE showed up last minute for a meal just before closing. Our waitress was awsome and took care of us quickly. We felt bad for coming in so late but nobody seemed to mind. Food was good, service was great! Will return.

“Average fish and chips at premium price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

The setting is great, the fish and chips are okay, and the service adequate and designed to keep the tables moving. But the owners are pretty greedy with these outrageous prices. There are two or three places in town with much better value for those looking for fish and chips.

“Tasty clam chowder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

While the rest of my party enjoyed their fish & chips, I had a nice bowl of clam chowder which was served hot with some crackers on the side. Although I would have preferred it to have more chunks of clam, it was still very good.

“Decent for What It Is”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

The menu is limited to Fish and Chips and a few variations thereof (fried chicken fingers, fish tacos,etc.) However, the fish was lightly breaded and really quite good for your standard fish and chips. Very generous serving of fries. We also ordered a couple servings of cole slaw (decent, but a bit overdressed for our taste) and seven bean salad, which consisted entirely of dried, cooked beans. Not bad, but we expected some fresh green or yellow beans to be part of it. Good beer selection, and we enjoyed the location on the patio. A little pricey, although we found that pretty much all of the food in Tobermory was a bit on the high side. Our server was reasonably good and overall we enjoyed our experience.
