Greasy fish and soggy fries. The coleslaw was just ok. I make my own fish and chips so I know how to make them crunchy and virtually grease free. Good service and cute name but the product is just so-so

I had read good reviews on this place. However I find the Codfather way overrated at least as far as food. I made 2 trips and both times the cod was greasey. The cole slaw was at best average. On the plus side the restaurant...More
