“Best Halibut Bar None”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

I live 30 minutes north of Bobcaygeon and it is well worth the drive to Pick up their halibut and chips. The batter is slightly crispy and not greasy and the fish is always done perfectly. You do get a lot of chips, but the do not match the quality of the fish. The price is at least 20 percent less that any other fish and chip store in the area

“Best place in bobcaygeon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

For the past 10+ years we come to Bobcaygeon and enjoy a lovely dinner at this establishment. The owners are amazing at hosting you. The servers are polite and friendly, and the food is absolutely delishous. I mostly have the fish, but their steaks and pasta dishes are awesome too. My children have had their burgers which are HUGE, and smell absolutely wonderful! You will not be disappointed.

“Fantastic Halibut!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Went to Just for the Halibut on Thursday July 4. I have to say this was the best fish and chips I have had in a long time! We were a group of 9 consisting of 4 adults and 5 kids. All adults got the halibut and chips. We were all very happy with it. The batter was just perfect! The servers were extremely friendly, paying extra special attention to our kids needs. The desserts were excellent. The prices are very competitive to other fish and chip locations. The restaurant is very clean and spacious! If I didn't live 3 hours away, I would definitely become a regular. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family. Hope to go back there again someday.

“Good fish, not cheap.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

It must be hard to buy quality and serve cheaply.

The building is a converted home or something and the waiting area is a little awkward. There is a unisex washroom by the take out window and washrooms way in the basement. Go to the front washroom if you're handicapped at all.

The food was nice and the service was good. I think the kitchen was a little slow but they did a good job. I had the clam chowder on special and it was generous and tasty. Dinners are 20$ or more each.

The atmosphere is fine but as I said the building is a little awkward.
