Meow! What great fish 'n chips! All 3 of us opted for the Cutlass Haddock. 2 with bread crumb batter and one with beer batter. All were perfect! Complemented by the Crow's Nest fried onions it made for the perfect lunch. The tasteful coffee was so nice to have instead of those stronger to bitter blends you get at some... More

Great little resteraunt with awesome charm, quaint design and fabulous food with generous portions. Both my husband and I loved our food He tried both my gluten free haddock ( which I loved) and his haddock and said they were both amazing.

The Cat's restaurant is a smaller place, and a lively one. If you want a quiet dinner, this is probably not the place for you. However, it is a good place for a dinner when you're feeling up-beat. The specialty is, no kidding, fish and chips, but you can get lots of different types of fish, and it comes in... More

We tried this location for the umpteenth time and were very happy once again. The fish and chips are plentiful and delicious and served really hot.... your food is not cold here. The prices are reasonable for the area and we will keep this place on our list of places to return to!

The food was good, but the yelling and crashing coming from the kitchen was not what I wanted to hear while I was eating dinner. I believe it is a family owned restaurant, and if you can't keep the family issues out earshot for customers, you need to rethink the design. There were a couple of young girls there with... More

I went to check this place cause I've rented an apartment nearby. It turned out to be an awesome place, I really liked the interior and the atmosphere. The staff was very kind and helpful and the food was so delicious. I truly recommend this restaurant and I'm going there again for sure!

I had the fish and chips, the portions were very good, but I found the batter on the fish a little too heavy for my liking. It was good, but I would only rate it average.

I can't say it was poor, but I can't rave about it either. It's fish and chips that are pretty average in quality.... but if you pick halibut... it's expensive! 2 pieces of halibut and chips..and a pop ran me almost $40. It was good fish.. but it cost plenty for the portion size. The service was quick and friendly.... More

We were served our drinks pretty fast and our order was taken at the time they delivered the drinks.... More

Cat's Fish and Chips is the "Little Blue House" that keeps everyone coming back. Cat's Fish and Chips, in both decor and cuisine is a little slice of East Coast life and could have very easily been plucked right from a Nova Scotian Harbour.
Cat's menu has something for everyone! Salmon, burgers, or a cajun chicken breast might be something for you.
