It looked so promising.....unpretentious and relaxed atmosphere, great smells. And the clam chowder was lovely/....lots of clams (even if they were a bit chewy) and a nice (if maybe a bit salty) broth. Then the seafood combo came. It was only $9, but it comes...More

Nowhere in the entire city of Belleville, is there a fish and chips restaurant that even comes close to "For The Halibut" in Bancroft. We have NO problem driving 1-1/2 hours (pleasant drive) to Bancroft for the first rate fish and chips these people put...More

Portion size of fish is good, very yummy but may be too deep fried. Salad was okay but portion is good. Cozy homey environment.

Stopped for lunch with my wife and split a large halibut and chips. Portions were generous, cost was reasonable and most importantly, the food was great. Chips were very hot and crisp and the fish was delicious. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

This is our fourth visit for lunch here. As usual both the halibut and chips were delicious! We also got the smelts, very fishy, but good. The clam chowder is claimed to be maybe the best you've had.....I have to disagree. It was good, but...More

I would guess it's been opened at least five years, but no more than ten.
