Fish n' chips were good, but it was the staff that earned the 4 stars. Friendly, and stayed open a bit longer in order to serve us our take out order. Thanks again!

Halibut was as good as I've had anywhere. Hard to not overcook, but they nailed it. Not great ambience, mores of a storefront with a bit of a deck, but nice enough.More

Great burgers, great fries, you won't leave hungry! I am not so fond of anything with batter on it as I find the batter fairly tasteless.More

Thank you for your review. We like to have a gentle tasting batter so as not to overpower the flavour of the fish. We observed that with most people, they seem to like to squeeze the fresh wedge of lemon on their fish, or use...More
