For Fish and Chips Thursday, Rich Miller writes, "I really felt like I should have gone through customs to get here. The menu is simple, straight forward, and is very British." Read more...

Caroline Cummins says in Mix Magazine, "This is a classic chippy. If you think fried fish is necessarily greasy, think again; the fillets of cod, halibut, haddock, Dover sole and red snapper here are terrifically light and moist." Read more...

Laura Sabo for the Portland Lunch Examiner writes, "The catchphrase here, “You’ve tried the rest, now taste the best” is spot on. Using the traditional English technique of frying in animal fat (sorry vegetarians) while finding the freshest and finest quality fish, The Fish & Chip Shop does it up right." Read more...

David Reamer in the Portland Mercury says, "All the selections are sealed in the Fish and Chip Shop's revelatory batter, which crackles against the edge of the fork but remains firmly attached to the fish. This expert frying is best experienced with cod, the British standard. The crispy batter and light fish create a surprisingly airy meal considering it's been submerged in hot oil." Read more...

Portland Monthly Magazine writes, "Hot out of the oil, the halibut’s light batter crumbles on the tongue, revealing the succulent flesh within: it’s rich with brininess (never fishiness), which proper deep-frying enhances. The servings are generous enough to share, and the chips are authentic British fare: thick wedges of potato as opposed to skinny, crisp fries." Read more ...

Ty Babcox writes in his blog Adventures in Brouhaha, "So, I ordered a large portion of halibut and a small portion of chips along with a bottomless soft drink. The food took a few minutes to arrive. After all, everything is made to order. But, when it arrived it was perfect. I doused it with salt and malt vinegar and dug in. Perfection. It is without a doubt the real thing. No pretender here. Just awesome. I would say it's the best I've had since England " Read more...

Cassandra Koslen says in the Sentinel, "The quarter pound of hot cod lay melting in its enveloping blanket of dime-thick batter, sprawled atop a bed of lettuce, embracing a tub of tartar sauce. Beside the fresh fish a pound of potatoes steamed, right out of the fryer. If I wasn’t hungry before, I certainly was now." Read more...

NoPo Ness writes for Neighborhood Notes, "So, if you want a great tasting and authentic English chippy experience, I suggest you head on over to The Fish and Chip Shop, have a look-see and order up some of the paper-wrapped fish and chips along with a Tizer and some mushy peas and Bob's your uncle."
