Amazing diner that serves fantastic food. Caring staff who really care about their guests. Great fish, burgers and salads.Great haddock It is in a mall that can be overlooked but eat here and you will not regret it. Very popular and you might have to wait. Well worth the wait.

Had family visiting from Ontario, and of course they wanted some east coast fish and chips.. took them to pleasant st diner, and were generally happy.

Overall, a good visit. It was Friday evening, and it was understandably busy with us waiting about 30 min for a group of 8. Annoying to wait, but it’s a sign that it’s very good food.

Everyone ordered the fish (except myself) and all thought it was very good and reasonably priced. Those that had gravy with their fries enjoyed that as well.

I had a bacon double cheeseburger, which is a hidden secret because who would think a burger would be great at a fish joint? But it is an excellent burger... my only complaint was when I order a bacon cheeseburger, I expect more than one slice of bacon, and cheese was a bit over cooked.

Definitely a good visit, and will definitely be back in the future.

Fro the outside, this restaurant does not look fantastic... maybe from the early 80's? The staff were very welcoming and efficient and the Scallops & chips were a fantastic value and very tasty!

This would be a great location for tour buses to take their clients as there is a lot of parking.

Was a fan of John’s lunch for many years and toerated the cramped quarters because the food was so good. No longer need to. Some of the crew opened this place and the food is the same and possibky a bit cheaper. Quick service, clean, fresh and pleasant atmosphere. My new go to for fried clams, scallops and fish.

I began working close by to PSD recently , I have eaten there almost every single day and so far...not a thing I don't love. Amazing Seafood covered just right , Calamari done on point! The Beef liver and burgers make my mouth water. Dont hesitate if you are looking for one of the best Diner options in the city on both sides of the water.
