Had lunch here at Christmas time. Interesting food, well prepared. Fish and chips and fish tacos, were different, but very good. Place is very open, so a bit noisy. Service was excellent and walking distance from the waterfront. Good to be away from all the...More

We only stopped in for a drink, but we wish we would’ve had meals. The atmosphere is cool! The servers did great. The options looked appealing.

Food was great. Great atmosphere with part of the kitchen right in the middle of the restaurant with you watching them prepare the delicious fresh fish dishes. All four of us enjoyed the food and service. Don't miss out on the mud pie for dessert!

The soups we got as extra to fish and chip was just the best we had for a long time. The fish and chips and seafood mix grill was ok, nothing more. Good service by the staff.

We tried the fish and chips special for dinner. I was disappointed that there was no paddock but there was the locally caught sea bass. It was seasoned well but fried a little too hard. This tended to downplay the taste of the fish. These...More

We first checked this place out a few years ago while waiting for a train. Fish was good, my hubby loved the clam chowder and sometimes makes a run to SB just for that.

Food was good. We had the fish tacos which were pretty good. Plates came with two tacos, rice and choice of either chowder or salad. Glad we tried, but we will look for something different next time.

I have no idea, but the food is middling to bland, very boring, the service is not good. I will never go back there anyway! (and if what you say is true, that is despicable!)

They open at 11:30am - you can make reservations on Open Table if you wish. You can bring up more info on their web site, i.e., menu, etc.
