After a day spent driving through the Ontario countryside, we were ready for a late lunch. The Monday we were there was a civic holiday and a lot of the local places were closed. But we happened across Crabby Joe's in Wallaceburg and were glad that we did.
Very bright and clean and almost empty in the mid-afternoon, we received great service without our server hovering.
We decided to begin our meal with the Classic Poutine ($6.99) which is Joe's Fries covered with brown gravy and topped with cheese curds. Hey, don't knock it until you've tried it. They had several versions on the menu, but if you're going to try something for the first time, I think it should be the original version.
I was happy to find a "Skinnylicious" portion on the menu!
Baked Sweet Chili Haddock with Thai Slaw (326 calories). Cajun spiced haddock fillet basted with sweet chili sauce and served with a Thai slaw of red cabbage, carrots, green onions, red peppers, sesame seeds, and cilantro. Garnished with fresh lemon. ($11.99) Doesn't that look SO fresh and delicious? It was. And yes, it had quite the kick from the slaw, but I ate every bite.
Harold, of course, chose the Beer Battered Fish and Chips. Hand battered, crispy Haddock fillets served with crispy fries and cole slaw. (one piece $11.99; two pieces $16.99) The fish was very fresh tasty and even the batter was a beer batter, it wasn't heavy. The cole slaw was different than any I've ever tasted in that the texture was very, very fine.
No room for desserts, but the entire menu is very extensive. Click on the link above and check out the menu.
