tasty

great traditional fish and chips. downside is nowhere to eat inside. the portion size is huge - I was very hungry but even so probably could have split my order of the fish and chips meal with someone and still been full.

I love this little chip shop and the food is great, they also do tea which we like with fish and chips. The fish is excellent and they have a good choice on the menu.

After a long day touring in the rain and cold, hot fish-n-chips hit the spot. The portions of these meals were truly for the "Giant". of the Causeway, and flavor to boot!

Forget the Flash in the Pan...look at the queue in this place every night of the summer and you'll know which one to go to! Best fish I've had in years, everything is super fresh and made to order! Massive menu choice too! Prices are probably cheaper than Flash in the pan too! All they can do is look across... More

After a very breezy new year's day tramping over the dunes to the Giant's Causeway, the friendly service, good value, and brilliant quality fish were a real treat.

We had a group of 8 and this is where we stopped to eat while up in Bushmill's area. The owners were very friendly and helped us out as to where and what to see. Growing up on the east coast of Nova Scotia, I am used to eating fish; but this place had one of the best fish and... More

waited some time for our order, part of which had been incorrectly written down by the server. When we advised this, the owner came over and became abusive, suggesting that "we thought we were too good for his outlet". At that we elected to leave. He then came out on the street to continue his tirade. Nice!
