Fredie’s Fantastic Fish House

This is a series of reviews based on finding the Best Fish & Chips in Nova Scotia.

Restaurant: Fredie’s Fantastic Fish House

Where: 8 Oland Crescent, Bayers Lake Park, Halifax, Nova Scotia

What I Ate: 2 piece fish & chips, the fish was battered English style. No coleslaw.

Details: The fish was fresh, light and crisp. The fries were home cut and delicious. The tartar sauce was kraft. Both malt and white vinegar were on the tables or bars. I asked for lemon. The ketchup was Heinz.

Service: Excellent! Fast, fresh and friendly.The staff were chatty and loved their menu, especially the fresh fish!

Atmosphere: Small and bright, very clean. Stools with lunch bar, counter style, open kitchen. A few tables on the sidewalk. I loved watching my food being prepared in a clean and fun way. Be prepared to eat in your car or take it out, it is a popular spot.

Price: 2 piece fish & chips, $8.99 without tax.

 Of Interest: Amid the usual, Fredies Fantastic Fish House stands out. Next time I am trying Newfie Fries- fries with stuffing or dressing and gravy. The seafood sampler advertised for sharing, sounded good too.

The Best Fish & Chips Nova Scotia

Time to rediscover the best fish & chips in Nova Scotia for 2012!

Fish & Chips & Lobster Gear

The last time I posted the  Best Fish & Chips in Nova Scotia, I awarded first place to  Lanes Privateer Inn in Liverpool and they hit the top by providing fish so fresh, it was rude, crispy batter, hand cut fries, and top quality tartar sauce and ketchup. Ambiance counted and Lane’s delivered with 3 choices, an elegant brightly lit dining room, a warm and inviting pub, or an outdoor dining patio overlooking the Mersey River.

The same as last time I will be using a combined methodology of straw poll and travels around the province. I based my tests on taste, price, and the extra…hand cut fries, ambience, homemade tartar sauce, freshest fish or best batter. This non exact science provided me with a frame of reference to list the top ten.  There are so many wonderful places that serve delicious fish & chips in Nova Scotia that it’s always a challenge to choose who has the best!
