We came by this place by accident while picking up tickets to a concert. So glad we turned around to give it a try. I had the 2 piece fish & chips while hubby had 1 piece fish and 1 piece shrimp. 1 piece of fish would have been suffice but was sooooo delicious. Definitely a place to get your... More

First time here. Best fish in Phoenix hands down! Beats Pete's and Pirates. Mmmmmm. My wife brought me here and told me that it was better and I agree. Tastes fresher than the other places. That's pretty hard for not living near the sea or rivers

The fish and chips are always fresh and hot. Cod is lightly breaded and very generous portions and reasonably priced.

Kind of tucked in to an older part of town,Washington and 32nd in downtown Phoenix. Nothing fancy about the exterior. Interior decor very fun, homey, and quaint. Fish nets with shells hand down from the ceiling.... More

Well the cafe was cute, across from the Jack in the Box. Inside seemed pleasant. Ordered 2 piece fish and chips. I am not a picky eater, and sorry for the unkind review but the fish was horrible and tasted old and rubbery. I didn't complain, just ate the fries and tried to tear all the batter off the fish...

My husband and I wanted to try some fish tacos. Unfortunately when we arrived it was to discover they don't do tacos on Friday. We were bummed. Until our food came. We were confused at first when we walked in. You order at a cash register near the door. I ordered 1 fish and 2 shrimp with chips. He ordered... More

My family loves this place for the fish, shrimp and sides such as zucchini, fries, onion rings, and more. It's the best fish and chips I've eaten in the 24+ states I've travelled to. I especially love their sauce and eat it on my fish and on my fries.

Stopped by for dinner after visiting the Phoenix Ale Brewery just down the street, Great fish tacos. Small clean restaurant great for families. Looks like they have Fish and chips for any sized family, saw huge piles of fillets on beds of cabbage constantly leaving the kitchen, will try next time.
