Great service and answered every question I had to ask about sea food. Their menus change so theres always something different. Prices are fair.

At the suggestion of my son and wife, my husband and I went to the Merivale Fish Market. We had the haddock fish and chips - everything was good and hot and ever so tasty. Highly recommend the food here.

We went for a business lunch. From the outside it doesn't look like much. It's a seafood store with a small restaurant in the back. They had authentic fish & chips that felt like I was back on the east coast

Wonderful fish market restaurant. Located off the beaten path, and not in the Byward Market area (which we usually ate whenever going to Ottawa). We arrived on a weekday evening, and from outside you could already see there were lots of cars parked. You came...More
