  • Went to Danny's for lunch with 2 co-workers after reading rave reviews. We waited for almost 30 min without any service whatsoever while people who were coming in after us were getting their orders taken by the 2 waiters working there at the time. The place was not busy at all by the way. After a half hour of waiting we got up and left. I can't comment on the food since I didn't have any but I know I won't be coming back.

  • This is one of the only places our family will grab fish and chips from. We eat it the meal rarely maybe once a year if not less but we always pick it up from Dannys. The staff are extremely friendly and the food is worth the price.

  • Order: fish

  • There aren't too many places in Markham for fish & chips. We always pass Danny's on our way home, so naturally decided to give it a try. My first experience there was..WOW. Nice lighly battered fish, homemade coleslaw - nice & crispy, a bit too much vinegar for me, but still tasty. The fries are fresh cut and fried to perfection. We had our fries separate from our fish in different containers which was perfect. Only problem we had was on our 2nd visit where they put the fries WITH the fish and the fries & fish were soggy.

  • Order: Halibut & fries, haddock & fries

  • Recently moved to a condo in the area and noticed this restaurant while out for a walk. Normally travel all the way down to Kingston Road to go to Duckworth's, which is the best.
    Decided to order takeout from Danny's and while the very small piece of halibut was good, the fries were soggy. There is also that aroma that occurs when the oil is used to fry other things--maybe it was due to be changed.
    Will probably try it again sometime, maybe to eat in. It is probably unfair to compare any fish and chip place with Duckworth's where the fish is fresh and the oil untainted with other flavours.

  • I walked into Danny's for the first time on Good Friday. Boy, was that a mistake. It was during rush hour, around 6:30 and the place was packed. There was a line up outside which gave me a clear indication that this was a great fish and chips joint.

    When I walked in, I was greeted by a girl and her brother (I think). Both were very busy, but were still smiling and friendly. I ordered 2 orders of halibut and chips and was told to hang on to a piece of paper with a number on it.

    Since it was my first time I had no idea how long I would wait. But, I waited patiently and around 20 minutes later my number was called and my order was ready. During the time of my wait I was observing the owner and his fellow staff work. They make a great team and are also very clean and efficient. The establishment is great for its fish and chips, but it's the staff that are a big reason I will make the stop over at Danny's. The 2 staff working the front were both very organized and calm and even making small talk with their customers which I found to be incredibly refreshing. It is not often you find such happy staff.

    I will be back to this place, and I rave about it to everyone.

  • Restaurant is not fancy but clean.
    Booths are quite small, only big enough for 1.5 people on the side of the table.
    Food was good quality, fish batter crisp and not greasy, however the portion size is quite small for the prices charged. (above average)
    Fries were excellent, fresh, nicely cooked and not greasy.
    Cole Slaw was also fresh and tasty but very small portion.
    Likewise the rice pudding and ice cream desserts were tiny and over-priced.
    Coffee, tea and juices are expensive.
    They do NOT serve alcoholic beverages.

  • Order: halibut combo, fries with coleslaw, mushy peas, coffee, rice pudding.

  • I read all the reviews, mostly good and I can't help but wonder WHY there are a few pretty bad ones too?

    That seems to indicate a problem with a certain cook and/or someone not performing their duties properly. Is there a way to track when the reviewer went to the restaurant and see if there's a pattern? That might just solve the problem and nobody would have to eat bad fish.

    I tried not to have any effect on the overall rating so I voted in the middle.

  • Order: I would have ordered a Seafood Platter.

  • I was very disappointed with this place after all of the good review that I read.

    The food was extremely over-priced and it was nothing special. Also, the portions were quite small. I have had much better fish and chips before. I did not find the people working there to be friendly at all either.

    I would not go again.

  • Order: Halibut and chips for take-out.

  • I made a restaurantica account just so I could comment about Danny's.

    I've tried it all, Bluenose, Windjammers, Captain George's, Mr. Fish & Chips- you name it, I've tried it!
    Each time I've left one of these joints I felt my money was wasted.

    Then one evening I found Danny's and I felt like I hit the jackpot!

    I was in recently on a Friday night with my wife. It was a full house so we had to wait a bit for a table. 2 of the staff (I think they are Ike's kids) kept us company while we waited. We were seated within 10 minutes and our order was taken almost immediately.

    The quality was amazing. The batter was just right and the chips were cooked to a nice golden brown colour.

    The place is spectacular, small and cozy and very clean. It was a very happy atmosphere and it seems like all the staff know their weekly customers. I keep asking my wife when we can go back.

    Family owned- the owner is a happy fellow, always smiling. His kids are great too.

    I can finally sleep well at night knowing I have found my new favourite restaurant.

  • Order: Halibut & Chips x 2. Drinks

  • Still the best, always will be the best. No ifs ands or buts.

    We sit in every Friday, sometimes you have to wait a few minutes for a table but it's worth it.

    Also, my wife thinks the guys working there are good looking.

  • Order: 2 haddock and chips, 2 halibut and chips
