Incredible crispy fish and onion rings. Fries were great as well. We brought some home and it was still amazing cold. Best fried fish in the area and they have peel n eat shrimp that looked outstanding

First visit I had crab legs and they were fresh and VERY good. This visit was shrimp and clam strips. Loved them. Causal place where you feel comfortable. Next time I will try the peel and eat shrimp.

Excellent place for grilled fish tacos. A healthy option at a great price. Fast and friendly service all the time. Also outdoor tables are available.

The fish tacos are to die for ... The fish sandwich hangs off the bun and cooked to perfection ... And then there is cobbler! Love this place.

Best fish in town. Hearty and hot servings. Never leave hungry. Service great. Highly recommend. However, would recommend better plates and untensils. Plates are paper and untensils very fragile plastic. Great place for family dining.
