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".

I am so pleased you enjoyed our $6.95 early dinner feature. We have added a shrimp plate with all the same sides too, both are available through January. Thank you for taking the time to place a review, I hope you’ll stop in again soon.
