This is a small place, with only a few stools inside, and tables outside. They only do fried seafood, but they do it well. Mom loved the scallops, the fish and chips were good, nice and crispy.

I always go for the Seafood Sampler for one when that urge for deep fried food hits and really it never misses .Share it with my girlfriend and really its just the right amount for two .As stated those home cut fries are delicious and made fresh.

Have been coming here since Freddie opened. Fresh, delicious, perfectly cooked and you can't beat double cooked fries (Belgian style).

One of the greatest places to eat at! The service is awesome, the people are so very friendly, everything is very clean and well maintained and most important of all, the food is SO DELICIOUS! It is a great place to go. If you are looking for a taste of Newfoundland, this is especially for you.
