We discovered this restaurant on the last day of the season. Best seafood chowder my husband and I have ever had and I have lived in Maine and Boston. It was filled with mussels, scallop, lots of shrimp and lobster and cod in a wonderful...broth. We shared that and then also split the lobster and shrimp Mac and cheese which was so jammed with seafood and a light cheese sauce, we were both stuffed. A TRUE GEM OF A RESTAURANTMore

We had the lobster Mac & Cheese and fish and chips. Fish and chips were terrific, crispy, light batter, not greasy, large portion, home cut fries turned into poutine were great. The lobster Mac & Cheese was excellent, was a very large portion, creamy, cheesy...with lots of seafood. All the other dishes coming out of the kitchen looked great. Inside the building was very clean; our server was super nice as too was the owner who came around to check on everyone. Other customers complimented the owner on the food I will definitely return (probably tomorrow to try the chowder)More

We arrived at the restaurant at 7 on a Wednesday night to find a line up outside. We figured it was a great place and were concerned that we wouldn't get it, however the lineup moved quickly and before you know it we were in...and seating on their back patio overlooking the water. Blankets were provided to take off the night chill. The food arrived quickly, and it was delicious...fish was perfectly cooked and the fries were to die for! Will definitely return.More

Excellent restaurant in Mahone Bay. We sat on the front patio and enjoyed Lobster Croissant Sandwiches and Seafood Chowder. Both were excellent! Along with Lemonade and a Bulwark Cider our bill pre-tip was $73.60 Service was awesome (thanks Tony!!) There is a back deck overlooking...the water. Take a sweater, we noticed lots of people leaving their table to go get a sweater.More

Hands down the best fish and chips I’ve had. The batter wasn’t too thick, perfect crunch. The fish itself was amazing and also very generous portion sizes! The fries were delicious as well. Amazing!

Can’t say enough good things about this place: -amazing food -friendly staff -great patio -delicious cocktails -gluten free option with dedicated fryer -coleslaw was delicious and fresh -tartar sauce was bomb (homemade and chunky and slightly acidic) -clean washroom but only one -short wait at...the door but staff very attentive — line moved quickly Some family members said “oh my cod this is the best fish and chips ever”. The lobster poutine was second to none. The fries are sooo good. The crispiness held up to the delicious poutine toppings. Best ever! The fish was lightly battered to perfection. We only wish we could’ve tried the fish tacos and note that they are closed on Monday or else we’d be back to try them!More

We had an OMG Experience at Oh My Cod in Mahone Bay this Sunday. Despite it being mid-afternoon, there were six folks waiting in line before us and it didn’t take any time for the line to form behind us for a table at this...popular Mahone Bay eatery. We were here in the Spring and several times before in years prior. Never been disappointed and wasn’t this time. My favourite IPA from Garrison was out so was offered to sample a recommendation of a Red from Fine Company. It would suit fine. I pretty much had my mind made up on their two-piece cod fish and chips because on our last visit I had the cod tacos and they were incredible. Janice went for the Lobster Croissant. I will go on record as saying my selection was close to the best fish and chips I’ve ever had. The two generous size pieces were prepared as they had been baked instead of deep fried. The fish was so fresh, it could have been in the water that morning. On the side was a basket of their home cut fries which were unequaled anywhere except for the last time we were here. The plate also included their house made tartar and coleslaw. Vinegar and ketchup were on the table. Janice’s lobster croissant was filled with fresh lobster salad and greens. On the side was another basket of those hand-cut fries. In Nova Scotia, fish and chips most often is haddock as opposed to NFLD and Great Britain where it is presumed to be cod. In my opinion very few folks would tell the difference between haddock and cod. Both are white and flakey and have a mild flavour. When I was in NFLD last Fall I think I overdosed on cod with over nine different meals prepared in different restaurants. The only meal I had that I didn’t enjoy was a baked chicken meal. Our service from waiter Tony was impeccable. The moment he said cod, you could tell he came from Newfoundland. He’s been at Oh My Cod a few years and knows his stuff. Oh my COD does serve more than COD. They have what is rated as the best seafood chowder anywhere plus unique salads, a few pasta choices, burgers, lobster poutine and scallops. However COD is King. OMC is open from Tuesday to Sunday and will close in October for the season. If there is a line, don’t hesitate to wait, it’s worth it! On your way out, there is an ice cream bar so you can have a cone when you do the stroll on Main Street in Mahone Bay, visit the shops, admire the well kept properties and take a few pics by the water.More

Great experience right from the start. Owner greeted us and we were seated within a very short time at a table overlooking Mahone Bay. Service was outstanding. Very friendly and handled severe allergies with care and attention. Food was excellent. Highly recommend this wonderful place

It was very busy and there was a lineup but we got in quickly. It was the first time we'd been here and we really enjoyed it. I had the cod tacos and my husband had the cod burger. It was the first time that...I had ever eaten cod and I really liked it. We also got fries with them. I was trying to get the ketchup to come out and I was having trouble with it, so the waitress/? owner came over to help me. Everyone was very friendly. I had coconut cream cheesecake for dessert and it was yummy. I would recommend this as a good place to eat and I am looking forward to coming back.More

Worth the lineup! The lobster roll is a step above the average, using a large croissant instead of a regular bun, and we could have eaten the seafood chowder for every meal. Even has an ice cream bar for the kids.
