This is a tiny restaurant downtown Collingwood. I had ordered the haddock and chips along with some calamari for takeout. The service was quick and friendly. I went just after 7 PM on a Saturday night and got parking right out front. There is a...little satin for takeout orders where you can get your condiments and cutlery yourself. While the calamari was cooked nicely the batter could have been a little bit more seasoned. I found the fish to be a little over cooked and was a little hard to break apart. The fries were done well and were great!More

I'm told Fish and Sips is a local institution. We were recommended it by our B&B. We were there at 6 on a Friday, and there was a short wait. The place was very full and doing a roaring trade in takeout. The cod and...the haddock were both excellent, and so were the chips. However I decided to try the mushy peas for nostalgia, and they were extremely bland. Mushy peas are an acquired taste at best, but I'll be avoiding them from now on.More

Very good fish and chips, at a reasonable price. We had 3 halibut and 1 haddock and 1 chowder for dessert, lol. The service was excellent and she was funny too.

Hands down best fish and chips ever! Absolutely loved the very light and crispy coating. Had the fisherman’s platter and an extra piece of Halibut. Fries excellent flavour and everything was NOT the least bit greasy!! You must try the homemade apple crisp! Highly recommend...this restaurant!!More

I've been here a couple times now and hands down the best fish and chips in Collingwood, maybe even all of Ontario. They offer a wide selection of fish, all lightly battered and fried to a perfect golden crisp and the fries and slaw are...great too! Highly recommend if you are craving fish and chips.More

Today is a stunning sunny day so we decided to eat on our own patio minus the cooking ... We had the haddock & chips, scallops and a Greek salad. The haddock was simply perfect, the fries very good. The Greek salad was just right,...serving easily 2 as a side dish and we appreciated the fact that the dressing was on the side so not to make it a soggy mess. Husband, the scallops connoisseur, declared the scallops good ... my translation is, they were very good ! We shall definitely return. Oops, forgot: the gentleman who took our order, was kind enough to bring it outside, to the car. Thanks !!!More

Fabulous and consistently good food. We love the owners and all the staff are friendly. They have French fries that are freshly pressed and absolutely delicious. The fish batter is also light and cooked just right.

Best Fish & Chips in Ontario Fresh, Tasty, Crispy. This is a classic made with care. We had cod and halibut with chips.. Light thin layer of perfectly fried batter, beautiful piece/fillet of white fish. Fries were just like home made, these did not come...from a factory. Great coleslaw also. Polite helpful staff and excellent service. Not cheap, but completely good and fair prices for such quality fish. This is what it's not: Not old greasy or tired. Not pulling huge globs of greasy yuck batter away to find tiny bit of old badly frozen slimy fish. Not old stale factory fries embedded with too much salt and soaked in old grease. You won't find any of this at Fish and Sips. Well worth the trip, a very high quality fish & chips.More

We vacation in Thornbury 3 times a year. Each time my husband says “We must go to Fish & Sips!” It is soooo good. The batter is light, the fish is tasty. The chips are fresh. Both cooked to perfection! The service is always great....We appreciate the owners dedication to serving a great meal each time we visit!More

Unfortunately, with Halibut now at $25/lb it does seem expensive. I cut and weigh each portion myself to 4.5oz which is just over a 1/4lb. If I was to portion larger than that I’d have to charge you much more than today’s price of $19.99....More

The portions were generous, the haddock was exceptional, the fries and creamy coleslaw were perfect. We would...definitely recommend this restaurant.More
