The best sea food meal we have had in the USA or Canada! The clam chowder was as good as the award winning one we had in Stowe VA and the fish and chips (not fries) was excellent!

The prices are reasonable and the servings are large at this quaint fish and chips restaurant. HOWEVER, the quality varies extremely from great to barely edible. Go ONLY if you feel it is your lucky date (and don't bring guests to avoid embarrassment if it is on OFF day).

Read the reviews so off we went. Upon arrival you can see how this place was once charming... no longer. The place is tired! Service was just OK, not professional by any stretch of the imagination. The food was AWFUL and I had to send back my first choice as it was inedible. Don't waste your time or $

We stopped in just after 5 and decided on single portions of cod. We were surprised to receive 2 pieces each and they were done in a very light non greasy batter. Other table split a 2 piece Halibut Dinner with large portions. I would like to try at a future time.
Service was excellent, decor is some what dated

this resturant serves too much filler food. Would rather have fish with salads and not so many fries.
