This is a fun restaurant that the whole family can enjoy together. Service is amazing and the food is really good. They have yummy shrimp. The batter is perfect! Add some malt vinegar for a little added flavor. Delish!

Somehow we have never found this spot on earlier visits. Our mistake! We had chowder for lunch, one seafood the other clam, sprinkled with shrimp and crab. De-li-cious! The service was friendly and efficient. Knocked spots off our previous favourite, which is really just fast food and cramped.

Very Casual, beach attire ok. Not fancy. Best Fish and Chips around. Big portions of fish, my husband and I split a four-piece dinner. Their appetizers are great, good portions. Fish is so tasty, great batter. Good fries. Never had a bad meal, eaten there for 12 years.

The food is abundant, fresh and cooked perfectly. Personally, I like a fish and chips place a little rough around the edges. The place... More

My family and I ate here for a wonderful meal. I had the Ling Cod, which was delicious. The standard Fish & Chips was good, as well. The waitress was quick and the dining room was pleasant. Great restaurant.
