“The fish and chips are tasty at this little plaza restaurant in Cobourg. The ambience is a bit stark.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The fish and chips are tasty at this little plaza restaurant in Cobourg. The ambience is a bit stark and uninviting. But if all you want is good fish and chips, it's a good spot.

“Great fish and chips!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

We went on a Friday at dinner time, and had no problem getting a table immediately. The halibut was just perfect, and the service was quick and polite. Great value. What more can you expect?

“Best fish and chip between Montreal and Toronto”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

If you are looking for something different from the traditional fast food joints, Try Captain George's Fish & Chips in Brighton. It's about 5 minutes off the 401 but well worth the stop.
The halibut is fabulously done. The batter is fairly crispy, not doughy or soggy .
Treat yourself to a great fish and chip !
