I found that the prices were very high, then when you bought there it was greasy and you had to wait long time to be served! Hopefully, it may have changed since I was there!

This is THE BEST place to go in town for fish and chips, period! The fish is always perfect and done just right and their fries are just awesome! Have the gravy, pour vinegar over it, it's like a symphony in your mouth.

Not sure of the atmosphere, but had to have fish and chips to go. Nice to have dressing for the chips with gravy. Had three nice pieces of fish, excellent sizes. Nice to finally see out east. Will be back!

This is a great place for Fish & Chips but be ready to fork out some dough. The service and food portions are both average.

Me and two friends had a late lunch at Ches's and what a treat. I had steamed cod with onions and it was the best cod dish I have had. My friends had the fish and chips and swear that it was truly the finest fish and chips by far. You will need a vehicle to get to the location... More

The waitress seemed very unhappy to be working, and asked our party of 5 to pull up a chair and sit at a 4 seater table, because most other tables were dirty. I ordered a chicken tenders and fries, which was slow coming out but was decent. Anything else I wanted, they were all out of. The waitress was very... More
