A local told us about this place, even though they themselves had never been. Wish we had gone to Murphy's. The fish was ok but the batter was thin and the fries were old and cold.

This is good fish, large pieces, real homemade fries and fast service. You do have to go to the counter to place your order and pay, then they deliver to you. Always enjoy.

Haven't been here in few years but it is still as good as ever. Nice to not have to eat at a chain type place. Easy off & on highway when you are passing through.
