I love food. I am a sucker for a fish fry. More times than not, if I see fried fish on the menu, I’m ordering it- even if that’s not my initial intent on any given restaurant. I eat a lot of fried fish. I’m...More

Being a purist I stick with cod for my fish and chips. The large portion is a good size. I like the flakey batter not the crunchy. As long as the oil was recently changed it is good. The amount of tarter sauce you get...More
