The best local fish n' chips around. They've been in business for 95 years, which says a lot. Service is fast and friendly.

Good seafood but its not like the old days here. The food is tasty enough but quite greasy. This should be addressed as this is a Woonsocket staple.

This place use to have the best tasting fish around. 1 fish n chip with coleslaw, tarter sauce and a 20oz bottle of coke cost me over $16! There was no size option either and the portion wasn’t all that big. I don’t know what...More
