Halibut House is a little pricey, but the fish is perfect every time and the chips are real! Above all, they are consistent with their quality and freshness.

Learned this restaurant failed it's code for keeping work spaces clean.. with fish of all things. They were fined and I have heard horror stories about the southern location in Oshawa. Probably not a good idea to risk it. Especially because bad old habits die hard and a fine might not be enough to stop a bad habit.... just saying...

A friend and I decided to try this place out for something different. The prices weren't bad, but the food wasn't the best. We both ended up sick afterwards and vowed never to eat there again. I'll stick to my tried-and-true places for fish.

We stopped in for lunch and saw they had an all day breakfast. With not being overly hungry we had the all day breakfast special. This special consisted of one egg, choice of bacon or sausage with home fries and toast $3.49. With our coffee, tea and tip it was just over $10. The food and service were good and... More

We had a two for one coupon so thought we would try the Halibut House again but at a different location this time. The food was ok, have had better fish and chips. Restaurant is large but not many customers. Portion size was okay. The Halibut House appears to be a chain.

Three locations that I know of in Oshawa, this is my favorite. Choice of haddock or halibut, all you can drink lemonade, nice fries, great service! What more can I ask? The restaurant has way more tables than needed so you will not have to wait for a table, at least at the time I can go which is usually... More

Love this place, my coworkers and I go here every Friday for lunch, if we can afford it. Love the halibut and fries, very nice. They also have burgers and souvlaki, though I would just stick with the fish and chips. Pricing is not that bad either
