The jumbo fish sandwich was excellent. My husband is still raving about the onion rings that were done to perfection. Portion size was good and prices very much in appropriate range for seafood. Parking lot was big enough to accommodate our RV. Service was excellent.

Great food and outstanding service! Our server was Andrew and what a delightful young person, efficient as well as a great personality. We don't get there as often as we'd like but it's a definite stop when we are in the Skowhegan area.
