The cod was incredibly greasy, dripping with oil. My liver was screaming for mercy.
The chowder though was surprisingly good, therefore the average rating.
For the cod I would not go back unless I need some nails to my early grave.

As expected they have good fish and chips. Great location right off the Main Street. Lots to see and do so was nice to sit down and enjoy some good food.

Looks good at first, but the food here was absolutely average at best. All produce is heavily battered and thrown in the French fries oil. My food dripped of oil and only tested of cooking oil. I will never come back. Tried Schooner the next day. Not more expensive for lunch, but orders of magnitude better!

One of the best fish n chips I have ever tasted, the halibut is so tasty and fresh. Perfect location, right in the middle of town center. Must bring cash as debit and credit cards are not accepted.

You get what you pay for and more at this small and very busy eatery. The seating is all outside on bench picnic tables. The menu is quite large making this really a ‘chippy’ offering burgers and fish dinners. The food looked good and tasted good too. It is what it is and if you enjoy this type of food, you’ll like this place, we did.
