Three of us after an early movie. All you can eat Tuesday (which happens to be movie deal night also) We all had the Alaskan Pollock which is the best value on the menu, three pieces of fish a generous supply of chips and coleslaw. served straight out of the fryer, mouth watering delicious. More than any of us could... More

Notwithstanding the lack of advertising, this small eatery has been our favorite fish & chips place for years. It is as close to authentic English fish & chips that we have found in Ottawa. I do miss their captain's plate that they used to have.

We've been using Digby's (and Joey's previously) over an eight year span and have never had a bad meal. It is value for money, nothing elaborate - but they don't try to be something they're not - and the food is always fresh, good tasting and not greasy. Prices are good and serving staff are very friendly and accommodating. Go... More

Standard and uninspired Fish and Chips casual fair. Prices vary from good to a little high ($6.99 Kids Menu!).

Tried it for lunch. Pleasant wait staff but the food was just OK. Nowhere even remotely close to the best fish and chips that we have eaten.....like Herbert ' s in Killarney. Not even close the Red Lobster stuff. Not bad, just nothing special to recommend this place. No hurry to return.

This restaurant, although dark and kitchy, has amazing seafood. I had the fish (Alaskan pollock) and chips and was delighted - it was the best fish and chips I ever had. The service was good and friendly.And it was very inexpensive.

We have been at Digby's many times, and every time, we swear it's the last time. The only reason we go there is for the Halibut fish, although it is way over-priced for the portion of Halibut that they serve. Their all you can eat on Tuesdays Pollock fish, is often times not well cooked, and so greasy and full... More

My wife and I have traveled all over Ontario and have ordered fish and chips in many, many places. Some good, some not so much. Enter Digby's in Centrum Plaza in Kanata, Ontario. Being originally from the maratimes we have certain expectations. Digby's exceeded all of them. They have a full seafood menu at very reasonable prices. To sum it... More
