Apart from being 'invisible' for the first several minutes, once I got the menu, things started moving in the right direction. The clam chowder was tasty, the blackened ahi with quinoa and avocado quite delicious. The quality of the fish was excellent. A good IPA...More

Very casual, counter service. I've been there twice and love the shrimp tacos (flour tortillas). I can also recommend the sweet potato fries and coleslaw.

Ate here twice last year and came back on this trip for the poké and fresh grilled fish. My husband loved the ceviche and son ate 6 fish tacos! Can't go wrong here! Fast friendly!

Excellent clam chowder--unusually tastes like a lot more clams vs potatoes. Excellent fish & chips: alaska cod lightly battered, but crispy; very crispy fries. Clean modern, if small, restaurant. Order at counter and food comes to your table. We will return.
