It is very good. It is greasy. You will feel the grease, but you will love the taste when you eat it. I didn't like the aftermath, but I did love the food. If you're from a place that specializes in the deep fryer, go for it!

Looked forward to eating at Eamon's but they were not very good this time. The fish was greasy & the French fries not crisp. Service was good & beer was cold but since we were there the last time food was not up to par. Maybe it was an off day or maybe the Irish chap was off that day.... More

The fried fish is great, as are the fries. It was crowded on a Friday evening during Lent. Seating is limited and the to-go crowd seamed to outnumber the folks expecting to sit.

Fresh fried fish, huge hot fries, and a cold beer! There's not a lot more but what more do you need?

Best Chipperie in the DC area...hell, the only one I really know about. Don't blow it, get the large cod and split a large fry. Hint of the year, like another favorite of mine, Kabob Palace, want to avoid a wait? Call ten minutes out. Jackpot.

Eamonn's is the perfect place for fish and chips, they are made to order and the tartar sauces are fantastic. I would rate this among the best fish and chips I've ever had. The location in Old Town is fantastic but seating is limited, so you made need to grab and go. I've never had their deep fried candy bars,... More

This restaurant, which I have visited numerous times on the encouragement of my family, is just another example of a good idea gone bad. The food itself is descent, but heavily priced and is not necessarily worth the calories. I found that the service was lousy as well and it took fifteen minutes to get a meal generally considered to... More

The fish and chips were great. The serve one big piece of fish, either 5 or 8 oz. with a variety of sauces. I had curry and traditional tartar. The chips were so good - long large slices cooked to golden perfection! Staff is friendly and joked why it took me so long to decide. He said, "We've got fish... More

My wife and I stopped briefly for a bite and loved this place. Cool ambiance and a pint of beer made it perfect. Wasn't too crowded either.
