A grand mother,mother,daughter operation, you're in good company. The food goes through a TLC ( tender loving care) procedure before it delivers to your table. The fish can't be any fresher than that. The batter is so light, it permits you to have a full taste of the fish. The lobster roll is awesome, no gimmick, no fillers, no complication,... More

Chips were great but the Fish is amazing, possibly the best I've tasted. The flavor and texture is spot on. The fried clams are also awesome. I was lucky to have their last batch. The eatery is very clean and the ladies were charming. Two thumbs up from Burlington, ON.

My husband loves good fish and chips and he certainly gave these a top rating. On the other hand I do not like fried fish in any form and had read that the chowder was good. Granted there is lots of fish in the chowder but it is absolutely flavorless and thin with a generic roll on the side. Perhaps... More

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 had read online that this place was rated number two by Coast magazine for the best fried clams in Halifax. I was not disappointed. I ordered a large order with French fries and it was so large the clams and fries had to come on separate plates. They were golden brown and delicious. Many ask how to eat fried... More

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.
