Best Fish & Chips in
Halifax & Dartmouth
Why locals love it
John's Lunch is a small diner that is a legendary, no-frills landmark near the wharf known for straight-up fish ’n’ chips since 1969. Their specialty is fresh, deep fried seafood: clams, scallops, haddock tips, kalamari and award winning fish!
Why you should visit it
Hands down the best fish and chips in Halifax or Dartmouth. The batter is prefect (not too heavy or greasy).
The diner is small and usually busy but service is quick and you can grab a seat at the counter or in a booth.
Parking is available but you can take the Woodside ferry from Halifax to Dartmouth too.
Cash or debit only! Hop on the Woodside ferry to Dartmouth (and get a transfer for the way back) as it's only a 5 min walk from the terminal!
