If there is one thing I just adore, it is good Fish N Chips. While many restaurants offer this on their menus, finding really good fish n chips is somewhat of a challenge. So, when we heard of OK UK Fish N Chips, we just had to give them a try.
They have 2 locations and we visited the South Fort Myers location. They are family owned and operated by a father and his son in law, John Norton, John Natanni and Shane. 3 generations operate these delightful restaurants.
OK UK is a casual restaurant. You order at the counter and they bring you your order to the table. As we know though, good food does not have to be fancy. They offer Fish, Chicken or Shrimp N Chips, Combo options, Sandwiches, wraps and soup. They also serve beer or wine.
My dining partner had the Shrimp N Chips (Queen $10.75) and I had the Fish N Chips (Queen $10.25). Each comes with the best coleslaw ever and a roll. We also tried the New England Clam Chowder. The chowder was not as thick as some may be used to. It was good though and had plenty of clams.
The Fish N Chips was outstanding. They use cod with a beer batter. The chips are made with real potatoes, not the frozen bag type. The portion is plentiful. The coleslaw is just outstanding. Reminded me of the type that is made up north. The Shrimp N Chips was equally outstanding with great flavors. They use good quality products.
The only thing I disliked, and it is a trivial thing, is they use plastic utensils which I am not a fan of. It is a personal preference and I certainly will not let it stop me from returning.
