I was disappointed with my first visit at the store due to the food. The fish was under season and greasy. The fries were not crispsy.

This is a great little spot for some excellent fish n' chips. I had the cod (one piece is massive) and fresh chips. The chips were a bit soggy but still delicious. Definitely ask for the tartar sauce. It adds a lot to your meal.

This is really a take out restaurant with very little seating.They serve their food hot and fresh. The batter is light and crisp and really, it is almost a perfect dish for those seeking fish and chips the way it should be done. I just...More
