Dropped by for family lunch between 12-1pm. Place was hopping, we managed to get a table for three. Fish and chips were very good, pleased they offered a gluten-free fish batter, bonus. Owners surveyed their customers about whether or not to change up their traditional...More

We've come to Fish on Fifth for years, but very disappointing on our last visit! we ordered halibut as usual. What we received instead was clearly haddock or cod. It was also in a new thick and greasy batter, which is their new gluten-free batter....More

This was always my first choice for lunch whenever I visited the island, not any longer! The batter was hard and dense not light and crisp as it used to be. I understand they have changed over to a gluten-free recipe, but why give up...More

Great food and service. The gluten free batter was very good, in fact this place offers many choices for GF diners. I love the classic fish and chips restaurant feel, been a long time since I've seen such a neat joint.

Went for a late lunch so looking forward to having fresh fish and chips, batter was greasy and very bland wasn’t very tasty at all, cold slaw blah, chips were good. All in all very disappointed expected the best since it’s by the sea.

Depends on the type of fish. It would cost around 14 for salmon up to 19 for halibut. I believe they have cod and haddock as well.
