The food was fair, I would not give 5 stars on the food but the service was so impressive I can't give 4 stars. Our server (forgot her name but It might have been Kim, on my receipt it says server 000500 if that helps)....More

Went for an early dinner, the one waitress on duty was very welcoming. Ordered the cod dinner with salad and veggies. The salad was a bit anemic but the homemade blue cheese dressing was delicious. The cod was very good, but a bit too greasy,...More

We were there early one day. They had a early dinner special for $6.95. We selected the cod. It was a very nice meal for that price. We had two nice pieces of cod, coleslaw, bread, and choice of French fries or homemade "chippers".
