Friday fish fry is a staple around here and we often go to the same old. We've heard about Jim's for years and decided to try it. Nothing special inside, but bigger than we expected. Waitresses were friendly and service was ok considering there were...More

Have heard about this place for years but hadn't stopped in until this week for lunch during work. Food is cooked to order and portions were very generous. Ordered a fish sandwich and fries and got more of both than I'd expect from other restaurants...More

This has been a hometown favorite. The food is homemade daily and is a typical greasy spoon. Portions are big and made with love. Family members make sure to always stop in when they come home for this hometown icon.

We had recently returned from England so maybe should not have gone for fish and chips so soon after getting back. The haddock was nicely cooked, the chips too. There was a very large portion of chips but they were cut quite thin and short...More

Looks like the locals go-to place for fried fish. Portions are huge. The fish is very fresh and the fries are very good. The coleslaw is vinegar based and excellent. Nothing on their menu is low calorie, but it's all very good. The place has...More
