Every year for the past 15 years we have been going on Good Friday to this great little place for our F&C dinner. Good service, great food, and fine drink make it a good destination. Good value and portions are huge as you can see.

We were searching around in Burlington on the GPS for a fish and chip restaurant and this one came up and it was relatively close by. Located in a mall with lots of parking the restaurant was a pleasant surprise when we entered. It was 1 PM and the place still had lots of lunchers.
Initially we thought the prices very high but then saw the a la carte menu. Reasonably priced - we find fish and chips in the Hamilton and Burlington area quite pricey compared to other areas of Ontario and Canada - and just the right size.
Two halibut and chips please.
Fish was nicely breaded and the breading was nice and thin but still lots and crispy. Chips seemed hand cut. A good plate.

This is your classic, old-fashioned fish and chips restaurant with table cloths and a warm, inviting atmosphere. Generous serving of chips or sweet potato fries and halibut at reasonable prices. And they serve tea in a real pot! Yes! Good friendly service.

I had the halibut and chips with a side of haggis. It was OK and a good price, but I remember it as being something of an institution thirty years ago, Fries were pretty average too. Big difference was that they serve beer now. Don't remember that from my last time there.

Go for the food and ignore all the old Limey's and ancient dandelions gone to seed that crowd this Burlington institution. Halibut and chips perfectly cooked, great coleslaw. Pints can be a little variable in quality, London Pride always good.
