Richmond Hill - favs and foodie finds?

Old galley is back located at Yonge & Elgin Mills in the NW corner where "t-jays" used to be. It's called "new galley" now.

No need to search elsewhere now.. the OLD GALLEY IS BACK! It's called New Galley now and it's in the plaza on the North-East corner of Yonge Street and Elgin Mills Road (where the T-Jays used to be and also where the Macs convience and pizza pizza is). I know it's them because I saw the owner inside this week and a couple of other familiar faces. They were not open yet but it looked almost ready to go.

New (Old) Galley Fish & Chips in Richmond Hill?

I was about to start a new topic covered in exclamation marks until I searched and found yours. I too was at the plaza the other night and noticed the "New Galley". I went to the door but the door was locked. But people were inside, as I was looking around the new place low and behold I saw THE OWNER! It's the old guy that was always in the kitchen at the OLD Galley at the old location.. I also saw a few familar faces from the old location. so from what I've seen this IS THE OLD GALLEY FISH AND CHIPS..... simply in a new location and completley redone, it's now a "bar and restaurant" type place. It looks nice inside and somewhat similar to the old place. It looked almost complete so who knows, could be 1 or 2 more weeks till we get the Old (New) GAlley back! Just not sure why they changed the name as people may not exactly know that the New Galley is actually the Old Galley.

Ok.. Just a small update. Went back to York Fish and chips tonight and got the gravy. I like the gravy so IMO the ranks it in a tie with Bobs. So most likely I'll alternate between the two places each time.

Tonight went to York Fish and chips. Very friendly people. Order was 2 halibut and chips with gravy. total came to $20.74 (so about 10.37 per person). First off tonight is a very bad winter night for driving and the distance to this place from my house is about 10-15 minutes on a good day/no traffic. So you can imagine tonight, but was craving F&C so out I went. So got it home and NO GRAVY! Argh, they forgot the gravy and no way was I going all the way back out to get just gravy. And that's how I eat my F&C, gravy on the
fries and a tad on the fish as well. Needless to say without the gravy the food was still quite good. Fries were excellent (believe they are hand cut) and the fish was a generous portion with no overly greasy residue. The fries portion was a bit small (but I'm starting to wonder if I just got spoiled at Old Galley with their fries portion). Anyhow this place ranks above Allencourt for the taste so my outcome is Bobs First, York 2nd, allencourt 3rd. If they have good gravy too it may put it into a tie with Bobs.

Today was Allencourt Restaurant Fish and Chips day. Ordered 1 order Halibut, Fries and small gravy. Total came to $10.34. So far the most expensive. Your order is made right in front of your eyes. Halibut size and fries portion was good size though, not too small. I found the fries a tad dry on the inside. But putting the gravy on them made them better. The gravy taste somewhat reminded me of gravy bought at KFC, so it was pretty good IMO. The fish as I said was a generous portion of fish, lightly battered and as someone else said not overly greasy at all. Decent meal but high price compared to elsewhere. I wouldn't shy away from the place but so far my choice is Bobs (but he closes pretty early, 7pm IIRC - so if Bob's is closed Allencourt would be currently a close second). I'll try York Fish and chips in the next week or so and same report back here.

Ok.. so did Bob's Fish and chips today. Order 1 order halibut and fries with a gravy.. came to $7.38. Definatley comparable to Old Galley, was quiet when I got there so got my order quickly. Very generous portion of halibut. Was a pinch greasier than I'm used to but I think that's because it came fresh directly out of the deep fryer and wasn't just "lying around". The taste of the fish piece though made up for that. The fries were very good as was the gravy. Fries not cut as thick as Old Galley's but definatley comparible in taste (if actually not better IMO). He could have given more as the portion of fries was smaller than I'm used to , but not overly small, a decent portion for those who can't eat those huge portions given by some other places. Overall I'm satisfied with the place and would definatley go again...... I'll do the other two places in the near future and report back here.

Thanks for all the replies. In the next couple of weeks I'll try all 3 places mentioned and report back here with my opinion. If any others come to mind in the meantime, please feel free....

Ok. So we all probably know that the Old Galley has closed (anyone know why? or if it's gone for good? or if it's coming back at a new location or something??). Anyhow that was my favourite place to get my fish and chips fix. Fresh cut fries, amazing gravy and of course the FISH! Can someone tell me a place in the Richmond Hill area (preferably around the same area Old galley was as I live in/around that area) that has fish & chips (and gravy) just as good (or even better) than Old Galley?? I'm hoping it has the same quality and quantiy as well. Thanks !
