Coney Island serves a menu featuring fish & chips and other seafood dishes for eat in or take out.
We've been here a few times for lunch and its worth the wait. The pieces of fish are extra large and they have the best chips. The chips just melt in your mouth and have a slightly waxy texture. The fish always tastes fresh and moist, not dry or hard. Unless your a big eater, 1 piece of fish is more than enough...
I've been to Coney Island Seafood for cod and chips three times now, always with friends and family, and everyone has been blown away by the crispy, fresh, delicious fish and the high quality french fries. Well worth the wait time, in my opinion! Service is always friendly and polite. Once, when my sister, 2 nieces and BIL were visiting from Vancouver, we decided to eat on their patio rather than find a picnic table by the water. My BIL had nowhere to sit (not enough chairs) so a young lady from the restaurant dashed out with an extra chair, totally unbidden. I thought that was a very nice thing to do and my BIL was grateful for the chance to eat sitting down, especially after carrying my youngest niece on his shoulders all the way from the pier to the restaurant. (Spoiled kid!) Any time I need a friend to help me with something (i.e. moving a couch, hanging a pendant lamp, removing a hornet's nest from the eaves), I bribe them with Coney Island fish and chips. Works like a charm. :)
I was blown away by the size & quality of my order. I had two pieces of Cod & chips & the fish covered the plate. I had ordered a bowl of clam chowder but luckily the server forgot to bring it which was great as I could have never eaten it with the size of the meal. I was next to the kitchen & I noticed they use fresh potatoes and cut them by hand and you sure can tell the difference in the taste compared with frozen french fries.The place has been there for decades and never been updated but I still found it cozy and I will return.
We came here on a Sunday and the place was packed. Also lots of people at the take-out counter too. We had the 2 piece cod fish & chips, the pieces of fish are still large and very fresh. They were busy so they forgot to give us some menus after we sat down but otherwise service is decent. I also like the heavier crunchier batter some other places serve but this batter was crisp, light and not too heavy so you could really taste the fish. The home cut fries look not as darkly fried as before but still tasted good, maybe a couple more minutes in the fryer and they would have been perfect.
With the nice weather we've been having lately, my wife have been heading to White Rock Beach and enjoying fish & chips on the beach. Having tried a couple of the fish&chips joints a couple doors down as well as a couple uptown, we firmly feel that this place gives you the best fish&chips in White Rock. The fish is cut up nice & big and the batter is light and crispy. You can actually watch them batter up the fish and put it in the fryer while you are waiting. Definitely not as greasy & heavy as the place a couple of doors down the street.
After a morning of kayaking a group of us went to Coney Island. I haven't been to White Rock in a number of years and wanted to try fish and chips. I had brought a list of the places from this web site but one of group said this place was the best and they had been here a number of times. We arrived mid afternoon so it was pretty quiet.
The place is small and provides take out. Since we wanted a beer we ate in. Unfortunately the tables are small so our group of 7 had to sit at two tables.
The waitress was attentive and took our orders quickly. I had the two piece fish (cod) and chips. The halibut was quite a bit more expensive. What I didn't know was the quantity of food we were getting. The two pieces of fish could cover the whole plate which was large. I could barely finish the fish which tasted really good. I wonder who orders the 4 piece fish? I think there was even a 5 piece on the menu.
The batter was crunchy, light and not greasy. It was delicious. The chips were a bit above average not as crispy for as long as I prefer.
The waitress brought the bill with all our orders together. She did not complain when we asked her to break it down and give totals for the couples.
I'd definitely go back. I'd order a single piece of fish but by the time I get there again I'll probably have forgotten how big the helpings were, remember how good it tasted and my eyes are bigger than my stomach.
My Family and I used to go to this place regularly but not anymore.
This used to be the absolute BEST of the best. Unfortunately, I guess with the hard times we have had as of this year and the later part of last year, they have adjusted the size of the fish filets. No longer great fish as they have sliced it in half! They were nice juicy thick filets but now they are so thin they could be chips or wafers.
I would rather pay more for the same thing. I know prices go up...but the size of the fish is what made this fish so good and tasty. Their batter if very nice though. Still is the best batter on fish unlike the cackey or doughy types that you find.
We don't go here anymore.
This is the first time i have ever come here for fish n chips and it is absolutely the best i have ever had in my life!! I have also tried many places and this place has the crispiest best tasting fish. T he only down side is you do have to pay 75 cents for the tarter sauce but it is a large portion and it is home made and very good, cant get much better tarter sauce. I cant believe the review that says there are better fish and chips and cheaper??? everywhere else the prices are the same and if you go to the boathouse the portions are small and costs $20. Who cares that you dont get a lemon wedge and have to pay 75 cents for tarter sauce have to be pretty cheap to complain about that. The fish here is the best on the strip and portions are huge i will come back here and only here for now on.
The fish and chips at Coney Island are incredible to say the least. I've eaten there for so many years, and know the owners quite well, who are amazing to talk to, and have a delightful sense of humour to make your meal a little more interesting. Every week my mom and I wander down to White Rock and have a beer and Halibut and Chips, which costs 16.95 for 2 pieces with fries and tartar sauce. The tartar sauce is well worth the 75 cents (if you're getting take out, dining in is free) as it is BETTER THAN THE PACKAGES, which they do give for free. The pieces of fish are huge, and lightly battered, very non-greasy. The service is amazing if you're there at the right time to get the girl. Make sure you ask for a sucker at the end of the meal!
There is a lot of competition for fish and chips on the beach.
I ordered the 1 piece cod fish and chips and the piece was HUGE. I couldn't eat the entire portion to myself (my dog gladly helped). The batter is amazing and the fish was very fresh. I heard the Halibut was even better....will try that next time.
Definitely recommend this for fish and chips on the beach!
This is the absolute best place for fish and chips. I have tried many places because I love fish and chips but this is my favorite! The fish is sooooo good! I dont go there that often but they know me by name which is really nice. I have tried many on the beach and the one not naming any names that is rated the best is nothing compared to coney island. Keep up the good work and the good food, I will keep coming there as long as they keep serving food!
There are many places for good Fish and Chips on Marine Dr. in White Rock. This however is not one of them.
It is more expensive than others nearby and the food is barely acceptable. You have to ask for a plastic knife and fork they don't give you one without asking.
Tartar sauce is extra and is 75 cents for a small container. Places up a couple of doors down offer tartar sauce for 15 cents. You have to ask for lemon wedges as well but at least these are free.
It claims to have won some kind of 'best' award by I don't see how.
Won't be going back.
