Fish is just too ... fishy, for me. But I love the deep fried fish at Davidson's. Don't get the largest size unless you don't mind taking home leftovers, or have someone with you who will take all the leftovers home. It's just a shame...More

Good fish sandwich and better than fast food at 10 pm. Family friendly and good place for conversation with family and friends.

We always visit Davidson’s when we we’re visiting family in this area. The fried fish is wonderful. The prices are very reasonable. There’s not much in the way of atmosphere, just quality food and good service.

Folk's my son and I decided to try some home cooking and decided to go Davidson's a visit for dinner. I ordered the 3 piece chicken dinner and he ordered the steak dinner. The dinners tasted good and the staff were professional and friendly.

Took the family on the recommendations here. I had the famous fish fry. The fish fry is a deep fried batter piece of fish. I’m not one who likes battered fish so I stripped the grease layer off and delved into the fish which was...More
