Husband and I ate here last night. We each had bowl of clam chowder and split a fish and chip basket. Very good food. Sweet potato fries were also good. Staff was very friendly and service was fast. Would definitely go again

Order at the counter and they bring you some tasty food. Fish & chips were good. Fries very well prepared. Other sandwiches have interesting toppings (huckleberry, lemon love) and delicious. Beer & sodas available.
