Decent fish and chips, great soup. Eat outside if possible as something smells funny inside every time i go there. Prices are ok I guess. Decent spot for a small town.

Excellent meal and service at this great restaurant by the ocean. The fish was superb, the chowder light and flavorful. Couldn't ask for better.

We had fish and chips and a fresh turkey sandwich. Both were great. But the real treat was the coconut cream pie for dessert. Fresh made there, it was out of this world. Highly recomend this restaurant.
