We showed proof of vaccination, and were glad to do so, in fact if they hadn't asked for proof we wouldn't have gone inside. There is a nice patio as well. We had fish and chips. I asked for water and the waitress brought a...little bit of lime juice on the side. It was so good added to my ice water. she was personable and spared a moment to talk to us. it is the end of the season. and there is a shortage of staff. but you would never notice as we had good service and our delicious fish was brought out very quickly, and very hot.More

This place has the best fresh fish in town. We had our dinner here twice and enjoyed it a lot. It’s a pirate theme restaurant which kids would love. Very acceptable prises and did I say it had the best fresh fish in town. Try...the all you can eat menu, you won’t be disappointed!More

Greasy! every thing is fried. If that’s what you want that’s the place. I order fish & chip and there was no coslaw! we order the same wine, came with two different type of glass. To finish, no dessert on the menu.

Frozen fish that was mushy inside and frozen mcains fries....powered gravy, can drinks..plastic cutlery, packaged tartar and no lemon. Didn't complain as obviously, thats just what they serve..had we known we would not have gone. Disappointed and ripped off. Would have tipped the server more,...but she noticed we had more than 3/4 of our fish on our plates ..and avoided us for about 15 min before taking our plates and asking if everything was OK.More

Had dinner here as there were so few options around. Sat outside as it was a pleasant but breezy evening. Service was good but the food menu is very limited - essentially various types of fish and fries. I did have the ribs which were...good. Extremely restricted choice of bottled beersMore

Visited this restaurant because of rating on trip advisor. Food average and all plastic cutlery and plastic glasses. Really, couldn’t you use real glass when your not paying fast food prices.

The wait was long but definitely worth it ! The fish was absolutely delicious ! The haddock was great and all of the fish is so fresh. The kids-meal has a very small portion and we ended up ordering 2 of them ! The all-you-can-eat...fish was pretty small and considering the wait for the food is long, I wouldn't recommend it. The food was pretty cheap considering we purchased the kids meal twice lol. The waitress we had Kim, was so kind and helpful and we had a nice conversation about dogs after our meal !More

After a long wait in line, a longer wait for a waiter to take our order and lukewarm water in plastic cups, we finally got our dinner. String fries, one piece of fish with a packaged tartar sauce, no lemon at all (they don’t offer...it because of Covid?!) and we left hungry and $75 poorer. Never felt the need in 36 years to leave a negative review but this was an extremely disappointing experience and one we hope we can save others from. We mentioned it to the manager who mentioned a lack of employees but the waiting was not as much of an issue (if at all) if the food would have been good. It was not. Save your money! Also, my husband ordered the chicken and ribs- it came with only 2 of the 3 promised pieces of chicken and he was so grossed out by its appearance that he was hardly able to finish it.More

Went at 11:10am and were seated immediately. Had a can of Shipwreck Lees own lager and it was tasty. I ordered the Whitefish and chips. Excellent portion, delicious and my wife had the shrimp and chips which she enjoyed. Service was great, sat on the...deck, and place was BUSY when we drove by at 12:00pm. Well done Shipwreck Lee and staff!More
