Must stop here when visiting the area. Open since 1932, and you can see why. Service is sharp and quick, food came out hot and hmmm good. Fresh fish clearly. Make this. Stop when here and we will return.

Recently visited and enjoyed the Windows looking onto the street while enjoying fish-n-chips and the local drink, L&P (try it!). Just steps from the train station it is a great place to eat while downtown.

I went for a look due to the good reviews. Yes it’s ok, but I didn’t think it was amazing. 6 oysters and 1 piece of grilled cod with chips and a small salad, 1 small beer and a glass of wine was $65.00. This...More
Hi Dick, Thanks for your feedback and we are sorry you found your meal to be pricey. I do recall in fact serving you and just to clarify your bill was $62.50, which I believe to be fairly reasonable when ordering premium items such as...More
