Thank you so much for your review...it certainly helps us compete with the franchise restaurants that have big advertising budgets. People will only take a chance on private run restaurants if they see enough good reviews. Thanks for the help!

We ate here in early May. This was our second visit here. First off, I like to eat at locally owned restaurants, and Westside is that. I wasn't too hungry and just wanted one piece of halibut and a bowl of soup, and my wife...More

This a small independent restaurant with good food and service. It is one of the best fish and chip places and the other food is also excellent. Leave room for desert as the pies are great. This is a must stop place to eat.

As a local we went for breakfast. I dont like egg yolks. After 3 eggs to the table with the yolk i asked the waitress what was up. She told me the chef was to busy to remove it and still paid for the meal. 2 pieces of cold toast and 1/3 cup home fries. Not too good of service if you ask me. Wont be back and in a small town i was very upset.

I would love some more information to know who was even responsible for this. This is most certainly not the norm, we have no problem removing yolks and absolutely no reason for your eggs to be wrong that many times. Not... More

Description
Westside Fish and Chips Family Restaurant has been run by the same family since 1979. Although they became famous for hand dipped, hand cut, English Style Fish and Chips the menu is versatile enough for all types and sizes of appetites. One wouldn't think that a fish and chip shop could make a good breakfast and they don't...they make a GREAT breakfast! The BEST Eggs Benny, hand cut and grilled homefries, eggs made to order and much more.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner there is something to please everyone. From picky eaters to vegetarians and those avoiding gluten, you'll find something to like.
Check out the over 500 teapots adorning shelves all over the restaurant and the dozens of Disney and other animated paintings on the ceiling.
