Title says it all, it is the only dish I've ordered each visit haha. It is funny because I actually really dislike fish and chips in general. Their in-house made batter is so crunchy, the perfect texture and it has a hint of sweetness that pairs so well with the (optional) malt vinegar. Also, the staff are super friendly and... More

I know this seems weird, but the shrimp and grits here should set the world standard. They even put the great places in Charleston to shame. Amazing.

This is kind of an interesting spot. We had planned on going to Doyles up the street but they were packed out due to the USA soccer match. The Hub was full as well so we walked down to Laura's after we saw it had some good reviews. Walked in the front and there is one table to the right... More

I live close to Laura's and have tried most everything on the menu. The fish and chips are simply the best fish and chips I've ever had anywhere. Even if your not a fan of that dish you will remember these. The chicken Parmesan is also phenomenal, better than any served in the area. Overall the menu has a wide... More

we've been back to Laura's Bayview twice, once with two friends and just yesterday with another couple. Three of these folks, as well as me, had the fish and chips and everyone gave them rave reviews and by that I mean they really raved about them. So I'm writing this to let readers know that the quality of Laura's fish... More

I had the fish and chips and we both had clam chowder. The fish and chips was excellent. They were battered (which I prefer over breaded) with a tasty, light beer batter. They were not greasy. The cod was tender and flaky. The fries were just the way I like 'em, crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. The... More
