My friends and I meet regularly for f&c and rate this place one of the best. The buttermilk batter was tasty if only a little greasy. The chips could have been crisper but the coleslaw was terrific. The pie was excellent!! We will go there again.

Thank you for your review. Please be sure to tell your server at the time if you have any problems and they will do their best to fix it to your satisfaction. Not as an excuse, we do have 2 newer cooks that need constructive feedback to improve. All comments good or bad are appreciated. More

Excellent and attentive service in this family style resturant with delicious home style breakfasts to suit every member of the family. The fish and chips make a perfect lunch or dinner.

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to let others know about us. Just to clarify...The Chocolate Macaroon pie was an experiment that went over very well. It won't be one of our pies in the cooler all the time but will certainly be made in rotation with our other specialty pies that we make. Glad... More

This a small independent restaurant with good food and service. It is one of the best fish and chip places and the other food is also excellent. Leave room for desert as the pies are great. This is a must stop place to eat.

By far the best local fish and chips. Not fine dining. My husband and I are getting older and the last time we were there the server called my husband "dear". This is an insulting way to address customers at any time. The fish and chips are made to order, hot and crispy,. The dining room is 1950's kitch, ceramic... More

Thank you for your kind words. I agree that calling a customer "dear" or "honey" is most often an inappropriate term. You do hear it at Westside from time to time as we do have servers that have been serving for decades and do have a personal enough relationship with some customers to call them "dear" - I don't believe...

For years my wife and I would pass by Westside fish & chip, today we stopped in for lunch. Service is very fast and friendly.

Family breakfast with 6 of us (3 couples) Service was super quick, breakfast was hot, plentiful and delicious and prices were more than fair... If you're in town try this local business first. You won't be sorry... Next time I will try the fish and chips!

Description
Westside Fish and Chips Family Restaurant has been run by the same family since 1979. Although they became famous for hand dipped, hand cut, English Style Fish and Chips the menu is versatile enough for all types and sizes of appetites. One wouldn't think that a fish and chip shop could make a good breakfast and they don't...they make a GREAT breakfast! The BEST Eggs Benny, hand cut and grilled homefries, eggs made to order and much more.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner there is something to please everyone. From picky eaters to vegetarians and those avoiding gluten, you'll find something to like.
Check out the over 500 teapots adorning shelves all over the restaurant and the dozens of Disney and other animated paintings on the ceiling.
