  • Was in London on a Sunday afternoon shopping. Thought what a great treat it would be to take home some fish and chips from Archie's. WOW!!!! I was so wrong. The fish was incredibly greasy and the batter wasn't even mixed through (yes, there were pea sized lumps of flour in the cooked batter.) To make matters even worse, the fries were only blanched. They put uncooked fries in a "Family Sized" take out box and sent them on their way. Imagine my $51.98 surprise when I open the bag to feed my family and see what I had just purchased. Yes, I know what some of you are thinking. "Buyer beware." Hahaha. I have purchased food from the Wharncliffe location (three years ago) and it was fantastic. Picture driving an hour home with the smell of something incredible to get WTF. Save your money and your time waiting for what can best be described as, "WOOOOF, with grease." Also, you will get no satisfaction trying recoop through the online site. If you can stomach walking into the restaurant again, try there for reimbursement. The only star this restaurant gets is a one and that is only because the lady serving us was incredible, nothing else was.

  • Order: Halibut Family Meal

  • We just came back from sunday brunch at Archies Commissioners in London Ontario (July 18). I come here not as often as my friends, but all my previous experience was good. My daughter and my friend's son are 3 yrs old. The boy had half a sausage and 1 pancake, and a small scoop of ice cream; and my daughter, thu it was 1 plate, it wasn't filled up at all, and small ice cream, which they both did not finish, BUT my friend and I finished it except the pancake. Eversince we come here, the kids never get charge for the buffet (2-4 yrs old are $4.99- which I understand it is a business. BUT it is very ridiculous to charge a kid with this kind of money especially if they barely eat and there was no waste!. Even Mandarin and Kings Buffet only charge $2 and if the kids have ice cream and a soup, they don't even charge them!...The other sad part of the story was when we mentioned to the manager in charge, "she said she was never informed (well she could call the server and verify it but she didn't) and she said if the kids eat, they charge them and it's better than the $11.99!" WOW!..rude, sarcastic and no consideration at all!!!....Just wondering if there is something to do about what `color`` we are. We are not white nor black.......What do you think

Kids 2-4 in general "barely eat" which is why it is only $4.99. The manager is likely going to try to find out who didn't charge you last time and reprimand them for not following policy, and essentially giving away free food.

  • Good selection of menu items, or the buffet. We choose the menu and the halibut and chips. Usually substitute one order of chips with an order of onion rings. Find the fish to be a good thickness (Halibut) not greasy or all batter.

    take out or eat in service is very good. Find staff to be friendly and there when you need them.

  • Order: 3 halibut and chips, 1 with onion rings, coleslaw

  • A good place for breakfast, service is pleasent and promt. Food is always pretty quick to arrive and generally very good, only a couple of picky points being the potatos are bland and bacon over cooked. Still a decent place for a hangover breakfast.

  • Order: For the hungary and landlover breakfasts. Coffee and tea

  • This was their second chance with me, sorry but they missed the mark. The plates were cold the food was cold and the pops were watery. I wish I didn't have to be so harsh but this is not difficult food to make, so it should taste right.
    I would wait for the sign saying under new management. I wish I could like this place it is near us, but I cannot.

  • Order: Two orders of Halibut and french frys and 2 pops
