Ever since they've moved to the new location the service and the food isn't as good as it was before. Very saddened by this. The last time I had the fish and chips, the fish batter was very greasy and the fries soggy. Not worth the money that I spent. Will no longer eat there. Do not recommend to my... More

Captain John's Fish & Chips is OK if you like greasy Battered Fish, the menu is not very much to choose from

We had the Halibut and Chips and were very happy with our meal. The fish and chips were cooked perfectly and serves fresh and hot. Coleslaw was pretty good as well. As for the ambiance... it's bright in there. You'll have no problem reading the menu. The last thing to comment on is the service. Yup, did I say the... More

It was fantastic with one of the best halibut & chips dinner experienced. Crispy light batter and tender halibut. The home made fries with a little... More

The restaurant has moved to 10th St West. The food is very good but I do find it a bit pricey. Nice and bright restaurant.
