You can't beat a big beautiful piece of well fried battered fish. Was offered 1/4 serve of chips. Plenty for one. Can sit watching the water and eating. Will be coming back often. Thanks.

This place is a dive. You couldn't pay me to eat there again. The owner is obnoxious and very rude. Shouldn't be in the customer service business. The food is poor. Fish is so full of oil it sticks to the paper. I doubt it's...More
