Lord Elgin's Fish and Chips is the winner of the Food Awards Ontario 2019 - Best Fish & Chips Restaurant.
The Family buisness opened in 1980 by Roy and Donna Lemcke and moved to it's current location on the South end of Port Elgin 30 years ago.
In a Facebook post the owners thanked their loyal customers who have continued to support the family business over the years.
Owner Mike Lemcke says his staff are a big part of the reason they have been so successful.
"I would also like to thank my staff, both current and past. Without such amazing staff it would not be possible to continue serving great fish & chips with the service we have become known for. Our server Janet has been with us for 23 years as has our cook Donna. We also have our cook Carolyn who will be with us 20 years next June, cook Linda who has been with us 15 years and our server Brenda has been here 12 years. I can't go with out mentioning our long term server Jackie who retired many years ago but was our first staff member to hit 20 years with us."
He says their five longest staff members add up to 93 years of employment with the business.
Lemcke also thanked servers Ali and Sabrina and cooks Sheri and Colin.
"We have many students work here and it's not uncommon for students to start here in grade 9 and work here all through university and even work casual part time after they graduate."
