it's simple.

There are any number of reasons to dine at Simple Fish & Chips.  For take away or eating in, it keeps me coming back again and again, and I feel good about it!

Let's talk sustainability, because if we intend to continue to eat good quality seafood (or seafood at all) we have to pay attention to the over-fishing and habitat destruction that happens with most commercial fishing.  Simple does this!  They have begun hosting 'sustainable seafood dinners' on Monday nights, if you haven't made your reservation yet, I recommend you call soon as spaces are limited.

With a wide variety of fish on the menu, haddock, halibut, perch, pickerel as well as a brand new all lobster menu among other tasty dishes, available even with gluten-free batter (or tofu 'fish and chips' for the veggie), it's nigh impossible to leave unsatified.  The batter is crispy, golden perfection - almost potato chip crispness without being over-done or over-thick.  Fries are thick cut with just the right amount of seasoning or for those of you watching your waistline go for a simple salad with balsamic vinaigrette.  Coleslaw is delightfully creamy and you can't find better tartar sauce anywhere!

For years Madelyn's Diner has been touted as the best fish and chips in town - but look-out, Simple is surely going to claim that title.


  1. This seams pretty bias for a blog that is addressing the 'service industry' I guess we've got another restaurant 'bloggier'on our hands....I guess anyone can be a critic.

  2. Argh! Looks like you've got some haters "Chew" Keep up the good work. I am a fellow server and I love your blog!!!

  3. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Your's seems to be at least researched, compared to many.

    Keep up the good work

  4. The First comment seems bias against truth, it is important to remember that flashy signs and big "dollars in their pockets" doesnt mean that they are producing great service or food! Word of mouth is the best way to find the gems in Stratford... Keep up the hard work "Chew" its about time the truth be told... Good or Bad!
