Stopped in here on business and grabbed a fish fry with onion rings and coleslaw. The large portion at $11.49 was a decent size and worth the extra $1 versus small portion. Lots of choices on sides. The coleslaw was more on the tangy side...More

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.

This place was busy for a Tuesday night and we soon found out why - the fish dinner! The smaller size is still large. Did not have room to try a dessert. Our waitress was nice and experienced. Would definitely go back.

We wanted a fish fry on a Monday night and this restaurant was perfect. Large portions and very good. They do not sell alcohol and you can't BYOB. Clean and very helpful staff.

Fish fry is always available and you can't go wrong. if you don't have a big appetite, settle for a fish sandwich - it's big too. The fish/chicken combo is great too. this is not healthy food, just good. generous portions.

I believe it was around $12.00 or 12.99. There about— but it was well worth it If you go there you must try it — or won’t be disappointed
