A small quaint restaurant right on Edmonton Trail. The fish and chips were superb. The battered Walleye brought me back to my youth in Northwestern Ontario. And the fries were sublime. My friend had the fish tacos and was very happy with her choice. And to top it all off was a slice of heavenly pecan pie. I plan to... More

My wife and I consider Big Fish a no brainer when it comes to seafood. We have been frequenting Big Fish since it opened. Kind of a best kept secret! The Sunday Paella has been one of our favourites so since we have not been in a while we made it our Sunday dinner. Unfortunately the Paella was not up... More

This is a nice little restaurant with great food at reasonable prices. It isn't very big so if you have a large party be sure to make renovations. As well, they offer brunch on the weekends. Otherwise, they are only open for lunch and supper.

This restaurant has a Monday special of two for one oysters. There was only one type of oyster available [both times I was there] and they were petite to say the least. There was not any value. The first time there were a few bad oysters in the mix. Both times the open shell oysters had shell chips in the... More

My partner and I came for Monday night 2 for 1 oysters and had a great time. We try to come twice a month and have yet to be disappointed with the food and the service. Tuesdays are atreat, as they feature fish & chips. I highly recommend this place if you want great food and pampering service

A nice meal with friends. I kept picking at my friend's plate of seafood lasagna, which was made of perfectly deliciously chewy noodles. Will come back for the easy atmosphere and great service.

Sat at bar and had butter leaf salad with crab and buttermilk dressing. Had martinis. Original and a lemon one. Had clam chowder that was perfect with crostini. Followed that with oysters Rockefeller and switched to a Sauvignon Blanc and then had mussels in a wonderfully spiced sauce that combines butter, cream and a hint of green curry. Dessert was...

I had the tuna salad and fish tacos. The tuna salad was quite good. The tacos were good but maybe to much spices. The dinner was generally ok
