Fish & Chips is a staple food along the South Shore of Nova Scotia. We LOVE our fresh haddock and we can be pretty picky about it. There are so many great spots along the coast where it is a feature on the menu. This summer ( well since we got home from August until Thanksgiving weekend because thats when a lot of seasonal places close) just for fun, I thought we would search for “THE BEST”.
I am really thinking I may have to revisit this post next year, there are so many more that we didn’t get chance to try!
So here is our list…
August 1~ Island View Restaurant, Western Shore
August 4~The South Shore Fish Shack, Lunenburg
August 12~ Halls Harbour Lobster Pound & Restaurant in the Annapolis Valley
August 14~ The Old Fish Factory Restaurant & Ice House Bar, Lunenburg ( added shrimp and scallops to this order)
August 24~ Pearles in Paradise
August 29~ Salty’s, Halifax Waterfront
September 15~ John’s Lunch, Dartmouth
September 25 ~ The Last Port Motel Family Restaurant in Canso, Nova Scotia
September 26~ Trio Restaurant, Sydney Nova Scotia
October 9~ Waves Seafood & Grill, Bridgewater ( We did take out )
I would have to say from these places we went to, my favourite fish is still from Pearle’s in Paradise in the Annapolis Valley. BUT my favourite place for EVERYTHING…restaurant view, atmosphere, presentation, fish etc… is
THE SOUTH SHORE FISH SHACK!!
They have the very best view in the Port of Lunenburg overlooking the water and directly behind the Bluenose. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant, inside or out, it is charming. I like the presentation how it is packaged in cardboard boxes with the checked paper and the food…everything they serve seafood is delicious!! I am sure this restaurant had an excellent first season and I can’t wait to go back here when they re-open in the Spring.
YUMMY!!!! I love Fish & Chips!
