  • ordered takeout over phone. ordertaker very unfamiliar with menu, as well as lacking in basic manners. Halibut very dry and overcooked, very dry. Chips undercooked, pale and limp. Have had decent takeout from there prior to this, but was terrible today. Dinner for three people $100......no beverages, just fish and chips. Have had superior fish for less than half the price, don' t mind paying for quality, but it simply wasn't there. Hopefully they return to the quality they once had, will watch reviews and make another attempt if we see reports of better quality.

  • Order: halibut family dinner, 2 extra pieces of fish

  • I had a craving for fish & chips last weekend so we ordered takeout. It was exceptionally good. The fish was perfectly cooked - very moist and tender, The fries were also cooked to perfection and not at all greasy. The batter was light and crisp and even stood up to the drive from the restaurant to our home. We are getting another takeout this weekend and my mouth is watering thinking about it.

  • Order: 1 halibut, 2 haddock, coleslaw

  • 1 pc of fish is plenty for one person. Generous size and nice light batter but the fish was overcooked. It was chewy and as happens when fish is overcooked, rather tasteless.
    Fries look like they are prepared on site - little crunchy bits and long lengths. Lovely! I wish they'd left the skin on and cooked them to a crispy golden brown rather than pale gold but perhaps that's the way most people like them.
    Presentation was rather poor. A big pc of fish and a few pale fries. No coleslaw, no decorative lettuce and tomato.
    A skinner piece of lemon served with the fish I've never seen.
    The decor is very stylish. The service is very good. My meal did not live up to either.

  • Order: 1 pc habibut and fries

  • I was been brought to this restaurant by my friend who lives around downtown guelph and I have yet tasted such a great halibut fish and chips so far away from the coast. I must mention first that this place has a beautiful atmosphere and service is very attentive. When we had entered the restaurant we were kindly seated to a table where few other people were already dining.

    About 15 minutes to 20 minutes after we ordered we were served with a gigantic piece of nice looking halibut with reasonable portion of fries. Server had already brought us the condiments that we needed, ketchup and the TARTAR sauce that must go with fish and chips. The Fish was excellent. Well done in colour, nice and thin coated batter that covers the outer surface of halibut fish. mmm I still can remember how hot and soft the inside of fish when I broke the batter with my utensils.
    Long story short, great restaurant, bright in colour, most importantly clean and well maintained. Food is exceptional yet unordinary in taste that you may find unique about this restaurant.
    Try it yourself, I am actually eager to find out, what you think about this place from your visit.
    (One of the waitress also recommended to try visiting during lunch time when they have selected couple of items specifically and lowered the prices along with little less portion for quick lunch/takeout customers.)

  • Order: one large piece of halibut with chips times two

  • I had the halibut ($14), my mate had the jumbo haddock ($13?) and daughter had the one piece haddock ($10.50?). Great quality fish with a nice light batter. Not too greasy and a decent size. I could have sworn last time I was there, I was served coleslaw with my meal however this time I wasn't and I was told it was an additional 99 cents. All in all it was a great meal, no real complaints except they may have been a bit stingy on the fries. However, I was full at the end and therefore I am happy. I wish they delivered though.

  • Order: halibut, jumbo haddock, one piece haddock, cans of ice tea and chocolate milk mmm!

  • This was my first time at this new place. I do enjoy my fish and chips. We tried this place out because we had a coupon for 1/2 off an entree. We both had the Haddock with fries and coleslaw. The fish was lightly breaded, just right for my taste. Servings were quite large. Fries were a little thick and soggy for my taste, but were decent. Service was fast, but admittedly, there weren't a lot of other people in the place for a Sunday lunch. It did seem a bit pricey for a fish and chip lunch, but we did enjoy our meal.

  • Order: Haddock, fries, coleslaw

  • Although the food seemed to take an inordinate amount of time to arrive after having been ordered, the quality of the food was better than most fish and chip places.

    I'd like to know who the hot waiter/manager is.......people watching him was well worth the wait for the food.

  • Order: Shrimp and Halibut Platters

  • Service was very poor. 4 or 5 staff members standing around rearranging glasses etc. while tables waited and waited. Slow - took over an hour for ordering and food.
    The fish was OK. Probably the best deep fried fish & chips I've had in Guelph. Still not great, but would satisfy my fish and chip craving.

  • Order: Large Haddock & Chips, Gingerale & Diet Coke

  • I was there for the first time getting takeout. They are a bit pricey, but give very big portions of fish, and if it's take out it's wrapped up in some paper which is a nice touch.

    The service there however has much to be desired. They need to train their severs with proper etiquette. Also we waited almost an hour for our food because there was only one cook.

    Their food is good but perhaps management needs to step it up.
