We made our first visit to Dianne’s Fish Shack and enjoyed a terrific family lunch. Fish and chips and salads were great. Service was polite and friendly. Check it out.

Great location next to the waterfront and Confederation Park. We had a couple drinks and appetizers on the sidewalk watching all the activity around us. The calamari was tender and the beer was cold. The waitress was prompt and helpful.
