I just really like their fish and chips and subbing a salad rather than fries and Cole slaw. The cod is good fish with a good Panko batter.

Used to visit this eatery 2-3 times a month; since the fire and remodel less, often but we still enjoy the setting and food. The prices have been increased and the fish portions have been reduced a bit but in general they still offer decent...More

Wonderful fish menu. Clam chowder is great. Counter service but they will bring food to your table. Eat inside or outside

Super tiny portions with a super high price. Those of us who got the fried food quickly discovered that the grease needed to be changed. The grilled salmon was so dry and hard I thought I was eating fish with bones in it. They act...More

If you like fish and chips while enjoying a nice view of the Narrows Bridge this is your kind of place. Good ice cream too.

Yes. Good gluten free options, BUT you won't be able to have anything fried. Grilled fish with fresh veggies is delicious. They also have fantastic salads. You probably can't have anything fried because of the coatings... More
