We heard about the chips. We stopped by and weren't disappointed. The service was nice and the chips were fresh cut.

We got to sample the fries on the last day Karen was open. We got an order of regular potato -- PEI-grown, of course-- fries, and also an order of apple "chips".

Chips were crispy. Fish was lightly battered and tasty. Tarter sauce complemented fish perfectly. Poutine was also very good.

We twice ate here during our recent visit to P.E.I. and by far and away it has the best fish and chips in the city. Always a line up as so many others have heard of it and come to eat there following city tours or while out walking along the boardwalk in the harbour area.

The owner was so welcoming. We loved watching her prep everything by hand--including cutting and battering the fish and chips. Excellent poutine too!

This place does what it says on the tin! If its potato chips (fries) you want then this has to be the place.
