Walking down the street, the smell hit me and I was drawn inside. Soon I was ordering a variety of fish. Sure was good.

Took my 87 year old mother here as she was craving fish and chips. The fish was good and she ate almost all. She just wished they had served coleslaw too. I had clam chowder (yummy) and a salad with shrimp on top. Excellent meal!

Was terribly unimpressed with our food. I had a shrimp salad which was covered in shrimp that appeared to come out of a can and was spread across a head of lettuce. Each dish received by every member of our party was not gross, but not worth the cost of going out to dinner and terribly disappointing. Additionally, there were... More

My husband and I both work in downtown Albany so we like to go together for lunch. This sweet little place is a great place to go for a quick lunch. The service is good and the food even better. The fish and Chips are amazing and the chicken strips are some of the best in town. Not much on... More

Service is ok, food isn't, Staff was more interested in visiting with friends than serving the public. The food is much better at other restaurants in the area. small portions even for cheap items. Won't be in business long. All the locals are now avoiding what used to be a good place to eat.

We used to eat here pretty often with my in-laws and I was wonderful. Went for dinner after not being there for about 6 years and I was so disappointed! The food was really awful. I got the small fish and chips, which was plenty for my daughter and I to share, but we could barely choke it down. The... More

This is a cute little seafood place that really needs a good scrubbing. I also dont understand the good reviews. My fish was flavorless and the breading fell off in a wet oily pile. I have a piece to my son and asked how it was. He shrugged his shoulders and said it doesn't taste like anything. Bingo. The salad... More
