Check out the attached photos for details. It looks like they will be closed indefinitely. I wish them well as their good food and friendly service will be... More

Everyone has their favorite Fish and Chip place and this is mine. I have been to many fish and chip restaurants over the years and I have to tell you, that this is my number 1 choice.

This little place is not to be missed on your next trip to Bowmanville, Ontario. They surprised us on how well the fish is prepared. The menu also has scallops, shrimps and even croquettes. We also appreciate the friendly and efficient service from the couple that run the place.

The haddock and chips were cooked to perfection. The chips are freshly cut and not greasy or salted. Thus allowing me to have them the way I want. The haddock had a crispy batter and most importantly not greasy. The couple who own the place are friendly and accommodating. Very clean. Most definitely will go back.

I love this restaurant. The food and atmosphere are perfect. The fish and fries are delicious and my friends enjoyed the chicken strips and burgers greatly. The couple working there are so sweet and friendly and can make anyone's day better. I'm very pleased
