"Just a Taste" are our own restaurant reviews in Saskatoon. We will share with everyone our personal experiences at the places we eat, simply our likes and dislikes.
For the past six months we have been discussing going out for lunch at Gibson's. Gibson's is a fish and chips joint located on 8th Street and Cumberland. The menu is consisted of burger, chicken and seafood meals. The price range for a meal is seven to thirteen dollars, this excludes desserts, salads and soups. As soon as you walk into the restaurant, you realize that Gibson's presents itself as a nautically inspired classic cafe.
Dallas and myself both ordered the Fish and Chips meal consisting of two fish, fries and coleslaw.
We both agreed that Gibson's has one of the best or the best fish and chips in the city. The batter was thin but still had a great texture, it has always been made the same way. The fish and chips there are always consistent, so if you like them the first time then you will most likely enjoy them every time. The service there was good as well, the waitresses and waiters always seem to be so happy and the cooks were fast. It's a place where you can go for a business lunch (you may smell like the food after) or even a place to go by yourself. They have those high stools where many single customers would choose to sit alone. You may look at the meal like we did and think to yourself that it is small, but the meal satisfied our hunger.
The only thing we disliked about Gibson's was the way we felt after the meal. Instantly after consuming everything we felt very sluggish. It's manditory to drink a lot of water during and after the meal to feel good.
