disappointed

well me and my husband order from here all the time and had no problems before untill today when we ordered we asked for extra tartar sause for our fish and chips.. when they brought us our food we realized they didnt send any condiments with our order so we called in to tell them and maybe have some sent or something but they actually argued with us saying i deffinitly put it in the bag but didnt and why would we call to see if they could bring us some if they packed it??? my husband is outraged that they had such poor customer service and pretty much calling us liers, so i highly doubt we will be ordering from there again way loose a costomer people :))

Passable at best

I agree with previous reviewers who said the fish was overbattered and on the greasy side. The limp chips did nothing to improve the situation. Service was not particularly efficient or friendly either. To be fair, it was far from the worst fish and chip order I ever had, but I would need to be in the area and very hungry to pay a repeat visit.

Really bad service and bad food

The fish was barely there between a huge chunk of really hard and greasy batter. The fries were just okay. I phoned and the owner didn't think there was anything wrong (! ) said to try it again and let him know - now why wold I repeat a bad experience when there are so many other good fish and chip shops in this town, A total thumbs down for service and food - save your money and go elsewhere.

Ordered for delivery uptown and the small order was over 1 hour to deliver and the french fries were cold and only partially cook. Great for walk in but don't suggest delivery!

Sinful indulgence

OK, let me just say that the fish and chips served here are some of the best in the city, as are the fries. (I've been having takeout from here for years.) However, I wouldn't recommend eating here on a regular basis. The oil they use hardens at room temperature (meaning that it's not the good kind of fat). But then again, what were you expecting!? Go eat a salad instead if you're worried! If you can tolerate the fact that you are shortening your lifespan by a few weeks, then I recommend you try this sinful indulgence.

yummy food

Love the food. I have there a few times now, will Def go back again. Don't find the service overly friendly but I generally get take out so it really doesn't bother me.

Can't WISH for better FISH!

Yes, the filthy carpet is gone but, then again, I don't eat off the carpet. However, it was nice to see that the place has been spruced up a bit. I love the fish and chips there and, yes, as a previous person stated, the fries are just like they're from P.E.I. I was born in P.E.I., so I am a little biased! The portions are generous. In fact, I usually have trouble gulping down the last few chips! Try it, I think you'll like it!

C'est Tres Magnifique!

This little fish n' chips resturant hidden in downtown hamilton was great! The atmosphere was great, I had an excellent server who was very kind. Apperantly he said he was the store owners son. He was very kind, humble, and chivalrous. The seating area was very clean and comfortable. The carpet was very clean and I don't know why people complain about it. The food, it was probably the best day of your life put in your mouth. The fries tasted like it was straight from P.E.I. The fish was perfectly crisp and a perfect amount of batter on it, with a nice thin freshly sliced lemon on top to compliment the fish. Overall the experience was fantastic the people were kind, the food was amazing, I would deffinently consider this the best fish and chip I have ever had. Well Done!

Excellent!

Great little place! The dining room is cozy and has an old-fashioned feel to it. They must have changed the carpets that people were commenting on- looked clean to me. The piece of fish I had was big, DELICIOUS, and inexpensive. Malt vinegar... mmm... I wanted to try the deep-fried brownies but was too full. We will definitely be returning!

Yummy!!

Halibut & chips are sooo good! The Halibut is tender and delicious and the chips are fresh-cut. I also love the fast, friendly service. I just wish it was wheelchair accessible.

There is something fishy about this place! Sorry, couldn't help myself! I have been going to this restaurant off and on for a long time, and find the fish and chips very good, if not the best in Hamilton. The place itself is nothing fancy. In fact, the carpet is filthy and kind of turns me off but, then again, I don't eat off the carpet. Oh, and be careful going down those long stairs to the washrooms. It would be very easy to take a tumble and break your neck! Overall, I like the place! Sometimes I go here just for the "halibut". Oh there I go again!

Loved it! My husband and I went there for lunch and I wasn't expecting much because neither of us had ever heard much about the restaurant, but i was pleasantly surprized. I ordered a regular order of Halibut & chips, I expected it to be the usual and it was the best I've ever tasted! I will definitly be returning. The staff were pleasant, the dining room is small but cozy...most importantly the food was delicious.

Only reason we went here is b/c parkdale & queenston was closed. The fish was more batter than fish..the scallops were VERY small..the size of dimes, & not many shrimps per order. only thing i liked was the battered mushrooms. They dont even sell fritters.

I have been going here for years. The servers are always polite and friendly, food is prepared quickly, portions are huge, and there are all kinds of weekly specials so you never have to pay a lot of money when you eat here. I love this restaurant.

I love their fish and chips

If you're looking for great fish and chips, you've found it here. If you're looking for a sparkling clean restaurant, especially carpet, you won't find it here. However, I don't go there for the carpet. I love the fish, and the French fries are homemade, I think. Anyway, they're great. I was there a few days ago and got the Friday special, which was under $5.00 and got a big portion of fish. I did order the cole slaw as a side, and liked it very much. Yes, I would highly recommend this place, but don't expect anything too fancy as far as decor is concerned, although it's kind of 50s style, or is it 40s, I am not sure!

Some of the friendliest and efficient service in town. Fish is a bit too battered for my taste but not my partner's. Good coleslaw side and scallops are very good. The present owner is carrying on the fine tradition of previous owners for good value and service. (Used to have lunch here often when I taught in the area.) Love the folk art on the walls (some for sale, done by owner's father in Prince Edward County). Dining room and washrooms are not wheelchair accessible unfortunately. Fast takeout.
