Throughout life I’ve eaten fish n chips hundreds of times so have my own baseline of what’s good or bad. Yet again, many good reviews got me drawn in. The place: ok, all young staff, friendly enough, simple decor, not unpleasant. The fish: errr..No! Lots...More

We dropped by because we had heard good things. The positives first. It’s a boutique restaurant - that’s to say fairly small with a “down home” atmosphere. The service was quick and friendly. The calamari was tasty. Now the not so positive. We also had...More

Quaint little place with amazing fish and chips. The pieces are huge and the 2 pieces were too much. I shared 1 piece with my 5 year old. They also have good options other then deep fried.

Went for old fashioned fish and chips (which the rest of the group had and LOVED) but ordered the Crab Cakes - they were so delicious. Made fresh they told me.

It was take out. The waitresses were very nice however the fish and chips were not. The oil was not hot enough so the French fries were soggy with oil as we're the fish. Very disapointing.

Small place, but very good food and friendly service. I went with a friend of mine and we both really like the food and service. Being health conscious, I chose the breadcrumb coating, which was nicely done and the fish was moist. I will go...More

Once again we went to this restaurant to savour their fish and chips and once again we were not disappointed. This time I tried the breaded method on one of my pieces of fish and although I liked it I much prefer the beer battered...More

Cat's Fish and Chips is the "Little Blue House" that keeps everyone coming back. Cat's Fish and Chips, in both decor and cuisine is a little slice of East Coast life and could have very easily been plucked right from a Nova Scotian Harbour. Cat's menu has something for everyone! Salmon, burgers, or a cajun chicken breast might be something for you.
