We all had the wonderful deep fried cod fillets, lightly breaded, homemade fries, and really good coleslaw. Friendly and competent service. Would recommend. Am told their hamburgers are good and huge.

They provide water bowls on the patio and little dog treats! Everyone seems to be dog lovers. The boursin cheese burger is delicious!

Stopped in for a beer and small meal. Patio was nice atmosphere. Beer choice limited. Food on menu was a little high. We ended up opting for a appetizer platter. Based on what we got we paid about $4.00 to much for average food.
