One of the best fish and chips shops, everything is made fresh! Very large meals and friendly staff! Only disadvantage: No from the smell of oil free seating places! Better take away the meals!!!

Ordered halibut, haddock and popcorn shrimp with fries. Everything was great except the fries. They were good quality hand cut, but The styrofoam container likely isn’t the best for fries. A cardboard box with vents would be better like from a fried chicken place. I...More

You Don't get much for the price you pay! No flavour in the Halibut at all! No Coleslaw as well. Pretty skimpy on the lemon piece you get.

We didnot realize this was only a takeaway shop. The quality of our dinner overshadowed eating in our car. They were suprised that american travlers found Frans on Trip Advisor.

Hi there! Fran's doesn't really have a patio. I haven't been in the summer, but the store entrance is directly onto the parking lot. I imagine that if they have anything, likely a bistro table and 2 chairs.

Kingston Ontario's best local Fish & Chip slinger - serving you delicious, affordable, quality seafood and takeout for over 30 years. . . Fran's first opened her doors over 30 years ago to bring Kingston another top-notch local venue to score delicious home cooked sea-food and take-out fare. As of April 2014, a long-term employee, Maggie Bender, has taken the business into her own hands by kick-starting this already regular fan favorite spot up a notch by adding fresh new items to the menu while still staying true to the popular originals. So, what are we famous for?! Battered-to-order eats that are crispy, golden and delicious every time. Our top-selling, mouthwatering, never dry bacon-cheeseburger on a soft, toasted bun. Smothered, deep brown beef gravy & St. Albert real cheese curd poutine. Our special made-in-house tangy coleslaw that's both creamy & vinaigrette combined. Last but not least, Maggie's new and popular TACO TUESDAY ...Warm tortillas, battered fish on a bed of diced avocado and creamy coleslaw. Topped with your choice of house-made cilantro-lime sauce and spicy sriracha with a side of fried corn tortilla chips and fresh mango salsa. All for $10.00. If you're looking for something fast, delicious, affordable, and most importantly - locally owned - come on down and try us out! More photos, updates and info to come
