Got off the interstate hoping for something besides fast food and took a chance on this...glad we did. Really good fried cod, hot fries and good bread! Good service too! Would certainly visit again if in the area.

I attend meetings here and stop on occasion for a quick sandwich and a cold one. Service is always great and the food is always good.
