Very good fish AND chips!

Large portions, enjoyed the sampler plate, and fish and chips. Skip the Hawaiian burger - it was canned pineapple and swimming in bland teriyaki sauce. Service was a little slow, but they were busy and you can stay occupied people watching. Right on marina, beautiful place to enjoy a meal.

Very good fish and reasonably priced. The place is very well located at the Oceanside harbor with a good view. The variety is not so large but the food is excellent. We enjoyed Alaskan Cod and shrimp as well as clam chowder soup. The staff is very friendly and the place is decorated with many pictures of fisherman's captures, -specially... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local so we took her advice and ventured out. We all had the fish & chips and enjoyed it very much. I would definitely eat here again.

Nice place to stop for a quick lunch. Very casual. Order at counter. Pick up food at counter and then enjoy in dining area or outside overlooking bay. Reasonable priced for area. Delicious dish and shrimp were huge.

Small and comfortable restaurant serving all manner of foods, desserts, and entrees. Burgers, sandwiches, and freshly made fish & chips. Eat inside or sit outside and enjoy the fishing harbor view. Best on a warm sunny day - it gets very cool after sunset or when it's foggy. Be sure to walk the harbor boardwalk. A pleasant afternoon or evening... More

We ordered the two fish sampler plate with two pieces of fried fish, chips, cole slaw and clam chowder. My hubby and I shared this and it was plenty for both of us for lunch. Very generous pieces of fish and large amount of fries. Casual fun to eat outside. Worth a trip if you want a quick casual meal... More
