Ches's has a few locations in St. John's. They have great fish and chips for a fast food chain restaurant. Fast and good service.

The best fish and chips in Newfoundland? Maybe for those who haven't been around, but we've had some that were even better. But then, the customer is always right.

Newfoundland's famous Fish & Chips. Celebrating 60 years in business, and is still run by the 2nd & 3rd generations of Barbours. All fresh products (except for the off fishing season) Ches's prides itself on having the best quality food that can be found. (example they hand select their "chip" potato from 6-7 samples each week for color, texture and taste)We hope to see you soon.
