The best fish! Love the coating, spiced just right. Generous portions. Long lines at lunch, but worth the wait. Go later in afternoon and miss the lunch break peeps.

Just now realized I never reviewed this place :) I've only been here once. I remember getting the fried smelt. If it was a little less breaded it would've been better.

Excellant food. It's a very busy place with only drive up open; sometime the wait in the drive through line is long, 30-45 minutes. However, it is wort the wait. I'll be back!!!

I LOVE this place. Great food no matter what you order. Great service too!Ps. Maybe switch to cardboard to go boxes? Styrofoam makes the food sweat and get soggy....

A new owner. They have changed the receipe and it is not nearly as good as it used to be. I gave them a second chance thinking it was a bad day. Same dry chicken. On my 3rd and final trip i decided to order gizzard dinner. HORRIBLE. IT WAS BURNT to a crisp. I think chewing on a shoe would have been easier. I ended up giving my dog(which is a pit bull) the dinner. She couldn't even chew it. And that is ridiculous. All this after waiting 45 min in line. Sorry but three strikes and your out. I will never go back to what used to be the best chicken around.

They just need to had out more tatar sauce than one packet for 2 pieces of fish. But food is always fresh . Just check your bag before you go for your condiments

I am from the south, and a place that serves gizzards is alright with me any day of the week, the chicken gizzards are always superb.The staff is always friendly, and the old man that owns the joint is a machine when things get busy.The sides are very bland, and it is a bit pricey for the quality and quantity. But overall... god those some good gizzards.

Great place that has been in business a long time. Last Chicken Coop in BC. Kind people with excellent food. Their secret is a light batter that doesn't soak up grease. Highly Recommend.

Review №27

Slowest fast food in town. They took 5 minutes to take my order. Then once I made it to the window nobody greeted me to tell me it was going to be a while or take my money for over 10 minutes. I just drove away. I can't speak for the food but the service is terrible.

Love Chicken Coop's Fish!!! its my favorite! prices are reasonable and portion sizes are great (you get more than you bargain for)! It's a small building but has a drive through and the parking is a little tough to maneuver, but it's worth it! The choices beyond the fish is awesome, clams, shrimp, (chicken of course) and sides and drinks as well as some dessert selections in their cooler.

This place has very good food but the manager is a real grump. I have to have my fried chicken fresh out of the fryer. But this person will not fix it fresh so I leave. I thought the customer is always right at lest let me have my chicken my way. I really need the owner to step in and help. They have lost me stopping in once or twice a week and always buying the 20 piece chicken. Now figure that out how much money they are not making. Not happy at all {:>(

October 2012 review: Stopped in here for a quick meal, based on previous positive experience. A different crew was working and I didn't get the same neat and clean feeling I had previously in March...so I'm moving serve from a 2 (Very Good) to a 1 (Good). However the food was still good and was a decent value. I will probably return if in the area again.March 2012 review: Real good fried chicken. I was in this area on business and saw this little chicken shop in a converted old Dominoes Pizza building. The name was quite novel, and obviously a local thing...so I just HAD to try it! First thing I noticed was that the shop was VERY clean, efficiently operated, and the food prices were very affordable!. I also notices a constant stream of customers...usually a good sign. FYI- The place is drive-though and carry-out only. Anyway, I got one of their 3 piece 'specials' with smashed potatoes w/chicken gravy. The chicken was lightly breaded and tasted good. Very good alternative to the all-too-greasy KFC, etc.

Food doesn't taste the same. Chicken was tuff and not tender. Prices are too high for the amount of food you receive. I use to enjoy this place. Very disappointed.
