Things you need to know before you get here,,, - Don't wait for a maitre D in a 3 pc suit to seat you. Seat yourself - Don't ask for ice. Drinks are served in very cold cans and bottles with a wrapped straw. Why? Cans and bottles are recycled across the street while dirty glasses require the use of fossil fuels to heat dishwasher. Don't ask for a glass of ice water with a lemon either. Cold bottled water is $1.00 - There are no germ infested re used menus at the table. The menu is on the wall. - If the waiter seems to be ignoring you its because he didn't notice you as a new customer. Don't sit there and stew about it. Let him know you would like to order.

With freshly cut PEI fries and your ridiculously huge piece of fish came with Kraft tartar sauce packets. WHY... read more

The food was outstanding! The fish tasted great and was not at all greasy. Yummy fries too! We were served in record time. The restaurant is more of a local type of place but we find those are the ones with the best food. You will not be disappointed!

My husband is British and he raves about this place! He says it reminds him of the fish and chips he grew up with. I just LOVE it!!!!! If you are looking for a fancy place to eat go to a 5 star restaurant and pay $50 plus per person for small portions of haut cuisine. If you want good... More

Fillets were huge and ordered a one piece fish and chips and another fish fillet and enough for my wife and I! Skip I think the owner waited on us and he was... More

If you want fish 'n chips in Summerside...this is the place to go...and it is truly one of the best on PEI! Dine in or take out, it's a busy spot in a really unexpected location. The restaurant isn't fancy, but it's functional and the owners do the cooking and the serving. The pieces of fish are huge and the... More

there is an eat in area but take away is better. The boardwalk is just minutes away so do take it there. A large order is way more than enough for two people.
