We are always made to feel most welcome. Service is friendly, and in spite of the big crowd this time around, being Friday evening, we were not kept waiting long and the halibut, chips and slaw were up to their usual standard. We only wish...More

We stopped in Huntsville after a long day of hiking in Algonquin and Westside is exactly what we needed! Great fish and chips, good portion sizes, relaxed atmosphere and reasonably priced. Will come back next time we are in the area!

Staffs are friendly, fish and chips are not bad. I wouldn't recommend fish chowder since it's more like vegetable/potato chowder than fish chowder.

We loved this cozy place filled with teapots. Friendly service. Great fish & chips. Delicious home made pie. Lemon meringue to die for. We decided to come back next morning for a good tasty breakfast.

Thank you for your review! It certainly helps small family restaurants compete with the giants out there.

Casual restaurant. Unusual décor with teapots everywhere! The Halibut and is excellent, not greasy at all with a very crispy coating. Sweet potato fries are better than regular fries.

Thank you! You are welcome to come and dust those over 500 teapots any time you like to get an up close and personal view of them lol. Our sweet potato fries certainly are popular, glad you liked them.

We apologize for your experience. Our fish is all hand cut and even if the pieces on your plate were small (we don't use perfect processed fish) - they should have put enough smaller pieces to create the correct portion size. I can't explain the...More

Description
Westside Fish and Chips Family Restaurant has been run by the same family since 1979. Although they became famous for hand dipped, hand cut, English Style Fish and Chips the menu is versatile enough for all types and sizes of appetites. One wouldn't think that a fish and chip shop could make a good breakfast and they don't...they make a GREAT breakfast! The BEST Eggs Benny, hand cut and grilled homefries, eggs made to order and much more. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner there is something to please everyone. From picky eaters to vegetarians and those avoiding gluten, you'll find something to like. Check out the over 500 teapots adorning shelves all over the restaurant and the dozens of Disney and other animated paintings on the ceiling.
