We have been wanting to go there for a while as we have heard good things about it...... finally got there! .... and glad we did. We had the battered haddock and battered cod which were both delicious! Our only complaint is the tartar sauce...More

I like Cat's for the friendly atmosphere and nice decor as much as the seafood. The meals that I've tried are good and served with a smile!

I grew up on fish; this is good fish. I grew up on an Island in the Bay of Fundy surrounded by water, fishermen and fish. Cat's has good fish. Fresh, nicely battered. This place is local and not pretentious, just good food.

This was our first time here. It's a very casual spot. Service was ok although our waitress never dropped by to ask how things were. We all ordered the haddock fish platters. The fish was a little too crispy and greasy for our liking and...More

The prices for the food are quite reasonable. The service is excellent. The ambiance is just as it should be for a fish 'n chips place.

Cat's Fish and Chips is the "Little Blue House" that keeps everyone coming back. Cat's Fish and Chips, in both decor and cuisine is a little slice of East Coast life and could have very easily been plucked right from a Nova Scotian Harbour. Cat's menu has something for everyone! Salmon, burgers, or a cajun chicken breast might be something for you.
