We tried the Captain's platter. It consists of 1 piece of halibut, cod and haddock each. All three fishes were not oily and the amount of batter was just right to be crispy. The fish were fresh and flaky. We really enjoyed the fish. The chips that came with it are not too oily as well. We enjoyed the coleslaw... More

Not fancy, but solid good fish & chips!!! Very friendly, large portions, small space through...I did think their batter was very different than any i'd had before. In a good way. :)

I don't think I can say that I have ever had a cut of halibut that was this fresh! Thick flaky and tasted sooooo good. I thought I've had good fish before but this place takes the medal. My friend and I ordered one halibut dinner and a haddock dinner so we can try both cuts of fish and they... More

Got there just after the advertised opening time, and the door was open, but they were not yet ready. Guy comes by saying he was called in to cover and was just getting the fryers warmed up. However, he let us sit and offered to put on the coffee while he worked on getting things set up. Waitress showed up... More

I really like the fish and chips in this restaurant however ithe restaurant could do with some TLC. The french fries are home made which I expect but don't always get in Fish and Chip shops.

Visited after 5 for dinner. Quite busy but we were able to find a table right at the door - awkward with people coming in and standing just behind you. The halibut was really good but the fries were over done and maybe 20 on the plate - quite disappointing since they say you can get a refill any time,... More

Tried this restaurant for the first time, and likely the last. The fish and chips were Ok, but for the the price Ok is not good enough. We had a $20 coupon that we paid $10 for from Island Daily deals, and even with that discount overpriced for what you get.

The Halibut tasted fishy (not like halibut). The batter turned soggy as soon as I added lemon juice. Not sure what the tarted sauce was, but it wasn't tarter sauce. I've never had fries before that were "mushy" inside. Didn't take advantage of the bottomless fries, they were not worth eating more. Very disappointed with both the quality and the... More
