This place has been a staple for local haddock fish fry for decades. Much of the decor will reflect that as well. Plenty of food, reasonably priced and the wait staff is fast and attentive. If you're food plan can afford it, get a milk shake, you won't regret it. Very kid friendly, it's just a homey place to eat... More

About a month ago, the take out fish dinner was terrific! Saturday was a different story. Fish was small, and what was there was a lot of the flat, "tail" section. Not many fries and the applesauce was very watery and had leaked out of it's container. I ate what I could of it and even my cat wasn't too... More

I met a friend here for lunch just to reconnect. I ordered the patty melt which was incredible. I opted for the onion rings which were ok but just standard frozen rings that are fried. The service was good. The food came quickly and was hot. I'm not sure how this place has become so popular because there really isn't... More
