We went for dinner at Montgomery’s cottage Lunch in White Rock. We both had the Cod Fish and Chips and split an order of Cole Slaw. The Fish and Chips was excellent, but the Cole Slaw was dry and tasteless. Our server was very friendly and helpful!

I went to get a quick meal after a meeting. I had the halibut and chips. It was by far, the best fish and chips I have ever had! The batter was crispy. The fish was tender and flaky, the fries were perfection! It was recommended that I purchase the home-made tartar sauce. I was not disappointed! It was creamy... More

After having tried the other place down the street, we thought we would try this place and have been coming only here ever since! We didn't know at the time, but have discovered this is more of the local favorite whereas the other place is more of a tourist place. We find the fish here not overcooked and very fresh.... More

Tasty food , good variety , value for your hard earned dollar . Try the deep fried pickle's . Small seating area with a big ocean across the street to get that salty air sensation as you enjoy an ocean harvest .

Popped over to White Rock - Marine Drive for a walk on the beach/walk way and of course Fish & Chips. I love Fish & Chips. During High School, worked at the Stanley Park and English Bay concessions and learned how to make the perfect batter and french fries from scratch. Well, Montgomery Cottage Lunch have it down pat. Light... More

A British colleague recommended this quaint restaurant in East beach, saying it was the best fish & chips in British Columbia. The batter is light and crisp, very enjoyable meal and friendly staff !!

After reading a number of good reviews about the fish and chips, my son and I stopped in for a quick bite. It's a tiny place- maybe room for 20? But the take-out counter hostess was very nice, as was the cook on duty. We ordered a 2 piece cod and chips and an order of deep fried, sliced pickles.... More

Apparently this restaurant is closed for the season, at least that is what we assumed. We had been referred to it and were looking forward to having lunch there. Unfortunately, there was no notice advising of any closure which would have helped.

The people a superbly nice and their service is uncanny. The fish is By far the best on the beach and I have never had better fish tacos anywhere.
