Very good combo with cod and shrimp. Nice French fries. They might add beers to have the best match with food!!

Hmmm I wonder why only 3 stars if the food was delicious?? We do not have a beer and wine license so are unable to sell alcohol! Madeleine

I was walking around the city and ended up around the Fisherman's Wharf at lunch time. The place is quite amazing for the owner, aka codmother, was a very friendly lady and the fish and chips are quite impressive. A great spot for some lunch!

Hot and freshly fried Cod fish and chips. What more can you ask for? This is NOT one of those places that is 90% batter and 10% fish. There is plenty of juicy fish inside that piping hot golden batter, so don't be shy. Comes...More

While the customer service was decent, if you are looking for some good fish tacos: THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO GO! There is a large fish thrown onto a corn tortilla with loads of their “baja sauce” which is basically just chipotle aoili. Nothing...More

Stopped here for lunch while attending a conference based on TA reviews. I got the fish/shrimp combo, which was just okay. Everyone was quoted 12 minutes for their meal. This is a truck stand with some tables outdoor with umbrellas. Nothing special. It appears they...More
