This is the type of place one would rarely find unless reviewed on a website like Trip Advisor. Based on the ratings, we went for lunch and were very pleased. I had the 2 piece fish and chips: both the fish and fries were well...More

This was recommended by the locals and is a no frills restaurant. Staff was super sweet and was able to handle our large group of 16 (including picky kids) with no problem.

Because THIS IS THE BEST battered cod and chips we had during our 4 week Island exploration vacation. Crispy batter that stayed crisp until the very last bite of the freshly battered FRESH cod. The chips are also fresh cut and the gravy is passable....More

That means fish (cod) and chips with dressing and gravy. The best fish in chips in Newfoundland is found here. Other places do more promotion and spend money on advertising... these guys don’t need to. Always great. Note: Not a low carb or low fat...More

I worked at Leo's as a teenager, and thank God it hasn't changed. They have the best fish and chips in town. The burgers are great, too. Huge portions, and I love the diner-type atmosphere. Family-friendly and so, so great. Leo's, never change!

There's a review from 2017 that states the named changed,but that's incorrect, The two places are in similar spots,but leo's can be missed. Both have good food, Leo's is easier on the wallet.

I was recommended this place by a resident of St. John's. I'm very glad I went. The fish was great. Thick cut and not too much batter. But the chips are made from sweeter potatoes than I'm used to. Not a bad thing, just different....More
