We stopped by here for a lunch and found out fantastic fish and chips. Quality foods with great service. Alcoholic drinks are little expensive though.

Thank you for your review and we're glad that you enjoyed your fish and chips. Prices for alcohol are slightly higher as we're a restaurant that sells alcohol, not a bar that sells food. It deters people from drinking too much in a family restaurant.

1st time visiting, won't be our last. Flaky light fish, light crispy proper batter, coleslaw was homemade. Fries so so, but don't go for fries, go for the fish!! We will be back next May for sure.More

Thank you so much for your review...it certainly helps us compete with the franchise restaurants that have big advertising budgets. People will only take a chance on private run restaurants if they see enough good reviews. Thanks for the help!

As a local we went for breakfast. I dont like egg yolks. After 3 eggs to the table with the yolk i asked the waitress what was up. She told me the chef was to busy to remove it and still paid for the meal. 2 pieces of cold toast and 1/3 cup home fries. Not too good of service if you ask me. Wont be back and in a small town i was very upset.

I would love some more information to know who was even responsible for this. This is most certainly not the norm, we have no problem removing yolks and absolutely no reason for your eggs to be wrong that many times. Not... More

Description
Westside Fish and Chips Family Restaurant has been run by the same family since 1979. Although they became famous for hand dipped, hand cut, English Style Fish and Chips the menu is versatile enough for all types and sizes of appetites. One wouldn't think that a fish and chip shop could make a good breakfast and they don't...they make a GREAT breakfast! The BEST Eggs Benny, hand cut and grilled homefries, eggs made to order and much more.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner there is something to please everyone. From picky eaters to vegetarians and those avoiding gluten, you'll find something to like.
Check out the over 500 teapots adorning shelves all over the restaurant and the dozens of Disney and other animated paintings on the ceiling.
