We've come here every 4-6 weeks for the past 9 years and it was always excellent. But things have changed, and it has gone down hill. We usually get the deep fried catfish - it's always had a delicate coating and was not greasy. Well,...More

Nothing special about this place, other than how fast the food comes out. You go to the front counter, order off a menu and pick a seat. The employees are very friendly and helpful should you need anything. The big negative is the food, the...More

I was staying at a local hotel and needed a place within walking distance. This was the first one I encountered and it was wonderful! Well priced, great selection and wonderful quality. Loved that it has outside dining area as well as inside.

Cheap and fast food but will probably never come back. The sides (sweet potato fries and Brussel sprouts) were not very good and the fish was blah. Sorry, but not impressed. On the bright side...The service was good!

The best fish and chips I have ever eaten. Large portion and reasonable price. My wife loved the trout. No waitress service, you order at the counter and your order is delivered. I thought everything was reasonably priced.
