My husband wanted to give the restaurant a try because he'd seen it advertised on television. Friendly atmosphere and the coconut cream pie was delicious. We were quite disappointed in the skimpy portions and cost, which we thought was too high for what you got....More

With out many more details I can only assume that you ordered a #4 (1 piece of fish and chips and/or coleslaw) What you describe is what we call 1/2 and 1/2, which is the 4 oz of coleslaw and a 1/2 order of fries....More

We stopped in 10 minutes before closing and they were happy to still look after us. Service was pleasant, super quick and everything was delicious. They did not rush us even though we just squeaked in before closing.More

So long as you're in the door before close, we're glad to serve you. Sometimes, if the cooks are still cooking anyway because of late tables, they've been known to even let you in to eat several minutes after close. We aim to please! Thanks...More

Thank you! Mushy peas, aargh, honestly I personally don't know what you people see in those but we sure sell a lot. Although, I was the kid that asked what was for dinner at breakfast...and just start crying then...lol.

The fries has nothing to do with cost but with space. Thirty odd years ago we did have fresh fries for a long time, so I am well versed on how to prepare a fresh fry. It is all about the space. I apologize about...More

The place gives you lots to look at while you wait. Teapots everywhere. The batter on the fish is thin which is nice. I had the haddock and the pieces were so small the waitress brought us an extra piece to make up for it....More

Thank you, we appreciate your review. That extra piece of fish should have been added before it even came to your table. All of our fish is hand cut, they aren't exact weights, therefore if a piece seems small, the cook is supposed to add...More

I would love some more information to know who was even responsible for this. This is most certainly not the norm, we have no problem removing yolks and absolutely no reason for your eggs to be wrong that many times. Not... More

Description
Westside Fish and Chips Family Restaurant has been run by the same family since 1979. Although they became famous for hand dipped, hand cut, English Style Fish and Chips the menu is versatile enough for all types and sizes of appetites. One wouldn't think that a fish and chip shop could make a good breakfast and they don't...they make a GREAT breakfast! The BEST Eggs Benny, hand cut and grilled homefries, eggs made to order and much more.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner there is something to please everyone. From picky eaters to vegetarians and those avoiding gluten, you'll find something to like.
Check out the over 500 teapots adorning shelves all over the restaurant and the dozens of Disney and other animated paintings on the ceiling.
