Fortunate Fox does a classic main of beer-battered haddock accompanied by pub chips and tartar sauce. Simple and delicious.

Bayview and Leaside

An absolute classic, Olde Yorke on Laird is just one of those spots that survives off of customer loyalty. Not the hippest by any means, this restaurant wins over its regulars with plates of thick-cut fries and simple fried fillets. 

Beaches

British Style Fish & Chips at the corner of Coxwell and Dundas serves good ol' fashioned fish and chips. Options for the fryer include haddock, halibut, cod, clams, shrimp and scallops.
