Loved this little place. It is quite small but comfortable and the fish and chips were excellent. Fresh squeezed lemonade was delicious. They offer take away as well. I will definitely return.

The service was good ,the food very good . The atmosphere was not bad, more a family style restaurant. The parking is limited and the exit a bit challenging. However if you were satisfied you can ring the bell on the way out.

Throughout life I’ve eaten fish n chips hundreds of times so have my own baseline of what’s good or bad. Yet again, many good reviews got me drawn in. The place: ok, all young staff, friendly enough, simple decor, not unpleasant. The fish: errr..No! Lots...More

We dropped by because we had heard good things. The positives first. It’s a boutique restaurant - that’s to say fairly small with a “down home” atmosphere. The service was quick and friendly. The calamari was tasty. Now the not so positive. We also had...More

Quaint little place with amazing fish and chips. The pieces are huge and the 2 pieces were too much. I shared 1 piece with my 5 year old. They also have good options other then deep fried.

Went for old fashioned fish and chips (which the rest of the group had and LOVED) but ordered the Crab Cakes - they were so delicious. Made fresh they told me.

We were visiting from Toronto and we really enjoyed this cute little restaurant. Nicely decorated and the down east music they had playing was perfect. Waitress was great and food was awesome. I had the salmon burger, delicious! My friend ordered the fish and chips,...More

Cat's Fish and Chips is the "Little Blue House" that keeps everyone coming back. Cat's Fish and Chips, in both decor and cuisine is a little slice of East Coast life and could have very easily been plucked right from a Nova Scotian Harbour. Cat's menu has something for everyone! Salmon, burgers, or a cajun chicken breast might be something for you.
