We arrived when it opened and a good thing too because the place filled quickly. I generally don't eat fried foods but the fish was done so well - not greasy. Cole slaw was yummy too. All 6 of us enjoyed the meal!

The food here is very good, however, it is very expensive. There are other fish and chip places in Sidney that are just as tasty, but not as expensive.

Depends on the type of fish. It would cost around 14 for salmon up to 19 for halibut. I believe they have cod and haddock as well.
