While Captain Ken's offers more than fish and chips. Seems to be what we go here most often for. And they do it right. Love the restaurant, and if in area DO DROP IN!!

Eaten there often. Sunday brunch wonderful. Simple family burgers and/or fish very good. Work or group xmas lunch very nice. Family owned business that treats you as one of their own. Speedy service, however your never felt rushed.

Love the pan fired pickerel. Casual and relaxed atmosphere. Great customer service with a smile. Great menu selection besides fish - my mom loves the chicken souvlaki. Back room better for get-togethers . Have been many times. Always pleased with what I order.

Great food and super friendly service by Kate. I had the Seafood Chowder and it is perfect. I used to live in New England and this ranks with the best. Fish is very good too.

This is another place that has been around for decades (the company I worked for more years ago than I like to think about supplied games here back in its pool room days) sorry an old man's reminiscence, but this place has gone through multiple renovations and upgrades and still remain a favourite of locals and visitors alike.

Great food - friendly efficient service. Our only complaint is it is always too cold. Make sure you bring a warm sweater!
