Love the fish fry at Tinys. You get a nice fresh piece of fish, fries, slaw and mac salad. I usually get the original coating but decided to try the coconut which was absolutely amazing! Great meal!

CLAMS ARE $2:00 a dozen - excellent. Also $2:00 beer. Locally brewed Utica Club is our favorite. My husband's favorite is Limberger Cheese sandwich with onions and mustard. I like it too,
