We ordered fried calamari and chips and found that the chips were excellent and very freshly cooked. The calamari was very small and had an extreme amount of breading on it. Not very good at all. They do a good job of providing condiments, napkins,...More

We stopped for lunch to get fish and chips and try the chowder. We also got some cooked crab. The crab was delicious; perfectly cooked. We liked the clam chowder though we wished it had more clams. We won't get the fish and chips again....More

I got the two piece halibut fish and chips for $11.99. They were prepared quickly and served nice and hot. I had heard very good things about the fish and chips here, but must admit I was a bit disappointed. I found the battered crust...More
