best cod ever, little over priced

This is a place with no frills, nothing fancy, just an irishly decorated tavern (Malt vinegar included, yay!), serving irish fish and chips. We had cod, which was AWESOME. Chips were excellent but cod was better, perfectly fried, all fresh. We also had the coleslaw, which is 100% house made and... read more

Having read the reviews I was expecting it to be similar to home. No it was not. On a positive note the food was hot and freshly cooked & the mushy peas tasted 'proper'. Unfortunately the fish batter was very crispy and thick and the chips were very well cooked, and we were given plastic knives and forks to eat... More

The fried cod was great. The chips/fries were good, but split a small size with a friend. Not too pricy, but not cheap eats either. It's also a bit confusing on the process (do they bring to you? Who clears the table?). Nicely decorated, but smells like a chipper would. We will go back, but not with great frequency.

My daughter's friend (who lives in D.C.) took us to this place while we were visiting the area. It is definitely old style, you order at the counter and find a place to sit. This is a relatively small place and I imagine that at peak times it will be difficult to find a seat. I ordered the Codwich, my... More

Fresh fish fried in great and crispy batter. Tasty battered sausages. Fantastic Irish-style chips. Club Orange and Club Lemon. Extremely good value and very friendly staff. The best fish n chips I've had in the U.S.

Large, flavorful, crispy fried cod with perfect fries. Several sauces to choose from. Guinness to quench the thirst! Small cafe atmosphere.

Stopped in here on our visit from Buffalo with some friends. This place is no frills, just great food quickly. The fish was awesome. I had heard good things and this place did not disappoint!

Our family of four enjoyed fish & chips here. We had read that this restaurant had the best fries in Virginia. The place didn't disappoint! It's a small menu, but everything we had was good. The fried cod, french fries and fried candy bars made for a delicious (if totally unhealthy) meal! Friendly staff in the tiny restaurant, too.

We had fish and chips, and it was delicious! The Chesapeake sauce (mayo with Old Bay mixed in) really accented both the fish and the chips, in addition to malt vinegar. I added a side of mushy peas, which were quite tasty. After our long day of touring the area, this was a welcome respite and delicious Irish meal.

Great Food! I wish that was all that was necessary for an informative review. Unfortunately not. The fish and chips at Eamonn's is great. (I do wish they were a little more generous with the sauces.) Price wise it is in an uncomfortable zone ... Less expensive than a true sit-down restaurant but substantially more expensive than a traditional carry-out.... More
