The St. John's post inspired this one....great places for fish and chips in Newfoundland..but i suppose you mainlanders can also chime in with your favorites !!

Ches's - a well known St. John's chain , always had a good feed here ! (prices seem to have jumped big time though)

Leo's - haven't had this since university days, but I lived off their fries dressing and gravy during many a lean time as a student. Good stuff here too ! A stone's throw from Ches's in the same block of buildings on Freshwater road (ches's has many locations around the city)

The Big R - two of these i think in the city, one on harvey and one on blackmarsh road i think. This was also a favorite for years , but at least for a while they were using frozen fish.

B & B's take out on Blackmarsh road - not necessarily known for the fish, but this is a Reddi-Chef location and fish with wedges sounds pretty good to me. They do (or did) family sized orders.

By The Beach Restaurant in Portugal Cove - by FAR one of the best views to enjoy while having fish and chips....which are fantastic here (they use canola oil for a lighter taste), so so good. VERY hard to get a table during summer months, but worth it to wait.

The Captain's Table in Witless Bay - fantastic food, very fresh. Also hard to get a table here !!!

I have been to a number of other places that i can't remember on the island. There used to be a lovely place out in Cape St. Mary's and others out Harbour Grace or Carbonear way.

Let's hear yours !!
