Had a couple of beers there. Kept watching the breaded shrimp go by us, and agreed that we'll be back to try that. Has outdoor deck seating, and a few high counter seats inside. Efficient. We'll be back.

The reviews raved about the clam chowder, I thought it was just ok. The fried prawns were really good. Seating outside mostly, there are a few seats inside if weather is bad.

This is a no-frills little cafe with half a dozen items on the menu if you don't count the fried candy bar and Twinkie desserts! I had the fish sandwich, consisting of a large piece of lightly battered fried Rock Cod on a hamburger bun...More

Fantastic prawns and chips. Excellent fish and chips. Good beer selection. Perhaps the best prawns I've had so would have given a 5 but very limited inside seating on a cold November night. And inside seating was not very comfortable. Would be fantastic on warm...More
