About 2 years ago, "LakewoodFam " wrote a review praising Steamer's Fish 'N Chips as the best in the area. I agreed then. They were wonderfully moist beer-battered cod filets cooked just right with a tasty, crisp batter. To my thinking, the best in the...More

Wonderful fish menu. Clam chowder is great. Counter service but they will bring food to your table. Eat inside or outside

If you like fish and chips while enjoying a nice view of the Narrows Bridge this is your kind of place. Good ice cream too.

Good place for fish & chips and chowder! Great view of the Narrows bridge and the sound. After lunch, you can walk down the path and walk along the beach when the tide is out.
