Get the tacos. Tried both the chicken and fish. The 2 taco serving was actually a lot of food, and we could barely finish our side dishes. Also dont order the coleslaw side if you're getting tacos...there's already lots of slaw on the tacos. Enjoy!

Excellent fish tacos, but I usually order the fish & chips. The fish chowder is also one of my favorites. Friendly and helpful staff. Very busy place so get there early.
