    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fun place, with typical boatlike decoration.
    Everything from inexpensive lunch special, to outrageous fishermen platter for busting your morgage.

    Favorite Dish: Great variety of fresh catch, grilled, broiled, sauteed, and yes breaded.

    The fishhouse is in the old bishop's palace, dated 1818.
    The bishop's palace, residence of Bishop John Strachan (1778-1867), built in 1817-18 while he was the incumbent of St. James' Church.
    Born in Scotland he came to upper Canada in 1799 where he achieved prominence as an educator and churchman and was consecrated first Anglican Bishop of Toronto in 1839.
    He served as a member of the province's Legislative council 1820-41 and of the Exuctive Council 1815-36.
    During the rebellion of 1837, the Loyalist forces that defeated William Lyon Mackenzie near Montgomery's Tavern assembled on the grounds of the Palace.

    This is the text that s written on a plaque at the wall of this restaurant.

    Located on Front Street, this place seems a real draw for the tourist crowd.

    Favorite Dish: Their Clam Chowder. My blackened Swordfish sandwich was decent but the chowder was better.
