....and dressing and gravy. Miss this so much when I am not in St. JOHNS. Gravy is thick and rick and the dressing is savory and delish. Fish batter is crisp nd fish is fresh. Yum!

Ches's is a real 'hidden gem.' The friendliest service imaginable, excellent menu options and very good seafood at reasonable prices. When you travel to St John's you must try the Cod Tongues and/or the Cod Cheeks - and nobody does these uniquely Newfoundland dishes better...More

Newfoundland's famous Fish & Chips. Celebrating 60 years in business, and is still run by the 2nd & 3rd generations of Barbours. All fresh products (except for the off fishing season) Ches's prides itself on having the best quality food that can be found. (example they hand select their "chip" potato from 6-7 samples each week for color, texture and taste)We hope to see you soon.
