My family and I ate here for a wonderful meal. I had the Ling Cod, which was delicious. The standard Fish & Chips was good, as well. The waitress was quick and the dining room was pleasant. Great restaurant.

Stopped by for dinner. The chowder and cold slaw were both good. The fish and chips were done well done. They were lightly battered and the fish tender and flavorful. The halibut was done well but in a bad way. It looked good but was overcooked and very dry. Value ok. The service was average.

I went in for a snack of these, and they were almost twice the listed price on this Trip Advisor menu. A great way to get new customers to stop. When I ordered my snack, the waitress informed me there would be six shrimp, and asked if that would be enough. It was just a snack, so yes. There were... More

The food was ok and good value for what we paid. The service was prompt and it felt very local, with interesting pictures of their Dutch history The portions were large though so be careful that you leave enough time to finish if you go in the evening as they closed promptly at 8. It's probably not a great place... More

This place was dingy, the food was bad, and the service was super slow. I could only imagine what it would be like when the place was actually busy. Although, I don't ever see that as a possibility. I ordered the catfish and it was supposed to be grilled, but it came out breaded and fried. We literally didn't see... More

We ordered a seafood salad to share it was just loaded with shrimp and crab. The fish and chips were the best ever. Only wish they served English chips as well. It was reasonably priced too.

This place is a find. A lady who'd lived in area for decades told me about it. They give you huge slabs of really good fish, It isn't pricey. They know how to do fish really well, and its like a major place for the locals. Tucked away a bit so you have to get good directions, but its cozy,... More

Place was tight no room to walk without bumping into someone. Menu was high prices, food had no favor. Service was fast and waiters were friendly but had to understand. Would not eat there again.
