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

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

This place is in a great location, but that's about all going for it. The fish and chips were greasy, and that's really all they have to choose from. Not a fan. Won't be back.

First....the food was awesome and we would come back...love the atmosphere...feels traditional. Just not sure if we screwed up or if the owners don't make it clear. Didn't realize that it really was a chip shop and barely an eat in place...guess I expected a pub. 10 min wait and finally got a seat....only a few seats and tables .... More

Does greasy, bright white and crispy battered fish really get any better than this. I love it here. I would go more if this food didn't set me up for having to buy new pants. Each piece is fried to perfection. The seating area is pretty small, but worth poking around for a seat. The staff isn't the nicest, but... More

Good battered cod but great curry chips. Do yourself a favor and spring for the curry fries, you won't be disappointed. Great small place with communal seating fostering conversation with fellow travelers. Great location as well.
