My mother in law who loves fish and chips, wanted to have lunch one day so we chose this place. I had heard about their fish and chips and I was not disappointed. The old fashioned fries with a big piece of cod. It was delicious - will go back. My mother in law, who doesn't eat much, almost kept... More

Had the haddock and chips. Fish portions aren't huge so could have done with more for the price. Tasted fantastic though - really fresh. Would recommend - just order extra fish.

This local lunch spot offers fresh seafood competently prepared (mostly fish n' chips with lots of fish options). On many days a tasty chowder too. A downtown lunch time favourite. Not 'fine dining' but good at what it does. A midday reliable.

it is not often that i feel comfortable in a fish and chips place but this place is owned by a celiac! so the fries are safe and you can always get pan fried fish. good value too

Always a great option for a quick take out meal. Food/menu is very simple but consistently good! I only wish they would have more sauce options for the chicken strips (such as honey mustard or plum sauce?).
