Reasonably priced, but large portions of GREAT sea food. Had the cod & shrimp, others ordered different items. All the dishes looked great.

For the price point, the food was very good. Nothing special but good, honest and tasty fresh seafood. Adequate and reasonable priced wine. The wait staff were amazing - kind to families and patient with older guests.

Had a tasty lunch at this busy restaurant in mid September. We each had cod & chips that were hot and crispy with a side order of coleslaw. Thoroughly enjoyed the well served, moderately priced orders.
