I had been looking for great fish and chips and I found them. Charlie the tree guy recommended it but it took us a while to actually go - it doesn't look like much BUT it was totally worth it. The service is great and the fish was wonderful. Worth rhe drive.

Best fish and chips in town! Affordable prices as well especially to take a family of 5 for dinner. Kids eat free Sundays to Wednesdays on top of their daily special!

We eat here on a pretty regular basis. It is consistently delicious, fresh and hot and never overly greasy. The fish sandwich is a fave, as is the 2 piece fish and chips. We also enjoy the whole clams when they have them. For dessert, the pies are always homemade and scrumptious. Do not miss this place if fish and... More
