Simply the best fish and chips! The secret fish batter formula is second to none. Cooked to perfection.

I hadn't been here in several years and I am glad that I was in the area again to enjoy a lovely meal. The restaurant was packed with a group of 40 people but I still enjoyed good food and good service. Halibut and chips are still great. Thank you.

1) fresh cut fries - harder to find now days, but always worth the effort 2) efficient dining experience with non-seafood options 3) local beverages made solely for this venue. Enjoy !!
