This is a popular tourist spot to head to if you are in town visiting. It is a restaurant where you order at the window and eat outside (good to know if you are looking to visit during rainy weather). I had the 2 piece...More

I was shocked at how much fish Barb's gives you. Nice big pieces of fresh cod (me) and also the Halibut (my wife) with a decent batter that was not oily and did not detract from the fish.

Fisherman's Wharf is a great place for lunch especially on a sunny day. The number of take-aways can be confusing but Barb's is a safe bet - indeed excellent. The Shrimp basket is unusual being crispy and served with chips. You order and then are...More

Can’t fault the cod and chips here. Almost as good as you’d get back home in the UK, although it comes with more of an American style fries than a British chip! Delicious, and Fisherman’s wharf is a lovely location to sit and eat!

Biggest piece of cod I've ever seen in fish and chips! Cooked fresh, delivered hot and their uniques tarter sauce was icing on the cake. And if I can find the Captain Electros Intergalactic Root Beer locally, I'll grab it in a second

We were looking for a reasonably priced and quick meal and wandered along to Fisherman's Wharf to find this place. We stuck to the basic fish & chips and it was decent fish and well cooked, with nice tasty chips. Would definitely go back again.
