With all the sightseeing, it was tough to get back before they closed but that we did one evening. We ordered the large fish and enjoyed it very much. It was tasty, hot and hit the spot. Quite conveniently located and delicious with good service.

Our family visited over Thanksgiving week. Loved this place! Went twice. Very little seating and line around the fence but service was fairly quick. The fish is absolutely delicious. About $11 for a fish basket with fries. Go for lunch!~

Based on high reviews, we tried Codmothers but we were disappointed. It's a food truck with tables outside, near Fishermen's Wharf. The service was friendly. The fish and chips order comes with 2 big batter-fried pieces of cod with thick-cut fries and tartar sauce for...More
