Had the salmon and it was really good. Hubby had the fish and chips. It was very different but amazing. The breading was made with evaporated milk I think and it was crispy and sweet. Delish!

This was a great place to eat. We decided to go here for lunch. They food was really great and fresh. I had fish and chips and it was made from scotch and not deep fried frozen fish. You will love going to this place!

My husband and I ate lunch here, overlooking the water. The food, atmosphere and service were exceptional. My husband says the Bleu cheese is the best he's ever had!
