“School House simply Suceeds Succulently”
Review of School House Fish 'n' Chips - CLOSED

School House Fish 'n' Chips
Price range: US$4 - US$19
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 June 2017

We made a trip to Port Severn the other night to try the School House (our 1st time) fish and chips. Turned out to be a great decision.
We were greeted warmly and served promptly. I had the battered (fresh) Pickerel, with fresh-cut fries, a crunchy fresh coleslaw and a really nice home-made Tartar Sauce.
The fish was very tasty and the batter was light - just right.
For desert, we shared a slice of home-made strawberry-rhubarb pie - amazing! The fresh fruit taste with the flaky pastry was just right - terrific flavour! Wow!
These folks really care about the food they serve, and it shows.
It was a great meal and we'll be back for sure!

The waitress was great. We waited more than one hour for the meals. The food was quite average, nothing really good. Clearly overpriced. The owner offered free onion rings so we didn’t leave. It was cold.

The School House makes all of it's food fresh on site (except the onion rings). The fried food was served hot and had good flavour and crunch. The coleslaw is creamy and a little bit sweet. At first it appears quite expensive but the portions are so large you can easily split a 2 fish order between two adults. There is plenty of room to eat in. The atmosphere is very typical of a small town fish and chip shop with kitschy water-related knick knacks and plastic table clothes. The owner/operator is very friendly and will take pick up orders in advance to have ready at a specified time - convenient on your way to the cottage. Try the coconut cream pie!

Not bad but not great either, a bit greasy and certainly not cheap. Hard for a couple to get out of there for much less than $50-

Friends of ours took us here for a late dinner and we had the best time with the best ever battered halibut and fries we have ever had. You can see and chat with the chef/owner during your visit. He is very funny and personable. The waitress was attentive and kept us laughing. What a fantastic experience we had, we will definitely be returning!
