Baked stuffed haddock was mediocre and tasted old. Seafood combo was very average. House salad was very good. Our waiter seemed irritated with us. Beautiful remodel job inside.

Went with my family 4 nights out of 7. Cleanest place I've found to eat. Service was mostly perfect. Portions were good. Prices were great! Especially if you get there before 6PM. Haddock and Chips, Onion Rings - amazing. Good job guys.
