Don’t let the name mislead you – Willman’s offers much more than fish and chips, including fresh-caught Digby clams, a renowned seafood chowder and a sizable baked halibut plate. This family-friendly restaurant looks every bit the part of the classic diner, right down to the dark wood chairs and cashier behind the counter. It’s a crisp ’n’ clean Maritime dining experience: You’ll get your greasy battered fish, sure, but also caramelized onions, pickled asparagus and golden potato wedges, if you like.
Willman's has been in operation since the 1940s, yet it often flies under the radar because it's tucked away on a side street in the Hydrostone. Make the trip: The fish is fresh, with just the right amount of batter to stay crispy, accompanied by mountains of fries. With a checkerboard floor and views onto charming, tree-lined streets, the dining room at Willman's is an inviting spot.
