Gold Winner John’s Lunch
Silver Winner Evan’s Fresh Seafoods
Bronze Winner The Five Fisherman Restaurant & Grill
John’s Lunch, its simple, gritty lunch counter and its platters fried of seafood, has been repeatedly dubbed not just the Best Fish & Chips in Halifax (by you, readers) but the best in Canada, too. Most recently, the Huffington Post heralded Fotis Fatouros and Stratos Baltas’ nearly 50-year-old seafood staple a must-taste destination. But because it’s the fish, not the chips, that’s the winner at this joint (OK, the kitschy atmosphere, too), we recommend digging through the heap of fries to tackle the haddock tips, clams, scallops—or your classic one-, two- or three-piece fish—first.
