Fish on Fifth is a casual fun spot for a drink and appies or a great lunch. The relaxed atmosphere is great and the staff are very friendly. Enjoy Fish and Chips with a local beer or glass of wine.

Ordered calamari, popcorn shrimp and a caesar salad to go. All of it was very good and the portion was large enough for leftovers. Definitely would go back if in town to try other items off the menu. Service was very good.

Depends on the type of fish. It would cost around 14 for salmon up to 19 for halibut. I believe they have cod and haddock as well.
