Fresh Cod - deep fried - on a sour dough roll with lots of tartar sauce and lime. I love it! Ask for extra tartar if you want a juicy sandwich!

We ate here for dinner. I got the Fish-Shrimp-Crabcake Combo Meal. It was delicious! It is served with fries and cold slaw. The shrimp is fresh and tasty. The service was good.
