Visited a number of times. Always busy particularly if the weather is good, interior is basic but great outdoor dining area. Pleased they had the Blue Cod in stock this time. Their fish burgers are very good too.

This place has awesome fish and chips. You have to try the Blue Cod. It was very busy when we were there but we didn’t have to wait long and the food was great.
