I have eaten here only once, but their fish is fantastic; so fresh tasting and the batter so delicately thin. The fries are homemade, but the day we were there for lunch, the fries were dry. It tasted as if the fries had been cooked earlier and re-fried prior to serving. Also, their tartar sauce is not homemade, rather they use those little packaged sauces, though thankfully not the Kraft brand.
IMHO the two best fish and chip places in HRM are Harbour Fish & Fries in Musquodobit Harbour and Freddies in Bayers Lake Halifax. However, each has its shortcoming; Harbour F&F uses frozen fries and Freddies uses packaged tartar sauce. Why can’t one restaurant provide a 100% authentic fish and chips experience?

There simply is no better lobster roll in this city then at Freddie’s . Try it with their secret sweet signature sauce. Lobster is heaped and in big chunks and always fresh.

For a restaurant that is supposed to be a great place for fish and chips, it fell sadly short of that expectation. The fish was fresh but the batter coating was thick and stodgy. The chips were limp as though either the frying temperature was incorrect or the oil needed changing. Would not recommend this restaurant
