Enjoyed a great fish and chip dinner including very delicious cole slaw. Seafoid chowder was excellent. Courteous service. Glad to support a local merchant instead of a chain. Prices very reasonable. Highly recommend it.

Oooh man - we dug in to the seafood platter for 2. Fish, clams and the most amazing lightly breaded scallops. Quick and friendly service. So happy for the trip advisor recommendation.

Fish was great, fries were soggy and lukewarm, perhaps because was close to the closing hour. Service was good as well.

Surely the BEST fish (haddock) and chips in the region. The batter is light and crispy, the portions are large, and the price is very reasonable. I keep meaning to try other items but never do. 😁
