Didn't wait long. I like that you don't have to wait in line for the order. Take a seat; they'll call your number. Ordered small fries (nice portion), gravy and iced tea. Came to $6.67.

The fish and chips are very good, but the fish is sometimes over cooked. Great portions for the price. Classic Hamilton spot. Will always go back every so often.
