The food is great, the prices are not too bad. Suggest taking out as the place is a bit of a dive, but who is looking for a fancy place to eat fish and chips anyways.

Solid place for fish and chips. From the outside nothing special and from the decor also nothing special. However the Vietnamese owner knows how to make some great fish and chips. Have stopped here before and will definitely come back as it is good English style fare. Should come wrapped up in newspapers for the final authentic touch!

Looking for a quick lunch, my daughter and I stopped here. The front door was very dirty, so not a first good impression. We ordered our food and paid on a filthy bank machine. We both needed to use the bathroom but decided to hold it as neither of us wanted to see how bad the bathroom was after the dirt we had seen so far.
Surprise, surprise, the food was really good! I would order again from here but would wear gloves.

We have always wanted to go in every time we drove by but never did, I think people would understand when they looked from the outside. However, wife was craving F&C and we were glad we did. The place looks about the same as the outside, very dated deco, has seen its days and with a much needed reno. However, most would come here for a quick F&C fix and it does deliver. Prices are reasonable and taste is better than average. We ordered the Halibut and the fish was solid and tasty and we liked the batter was thin and just coated the fish perfectly. The chips where fried to perfection as well and not too overly but I did wish there was a bit more chips. All in all, pretty good F&C I must say and would come back next time for our fix.

Halibut House is my favourite local fish and chips. Good fish, never soggy, and great fries. Decent portions. They also have salmon as an option (which is great) and McKay's ice cream. Not health food, but very tasty.
