Fish n Chips

Tucked away off route one blink and you miss it. Take out with very small dining room fish and chips where dead on they have figured out just the right amount of deep fry so the fish still has flavor. New England clam chowder very credible.

Well, our second trip confirmed that this place is a real doozy. High prices and bland food. The clam strips tasted primarily of flour and the Lobster bisque tasted like it was out of a package. Blech. The two stars I'm giving are only due to the excellent potato salad.

I used to think the gold standard for lobster rolls was Lenny & Joe's...but not anymore. The one at Westfair was simply fantastic and better than Lenny & Joe's. Lots of fresh lobster meat that is not overshadowed by too much butter or too much bread. The cole slaw that came with it was fresh and tasty. My GF had... More

Having read about this place in a national magazine, I had high hopes for some really good fish and chips. What I got was mediocre at best. The fish was dry, the batter uninspired and the chips and coleslaw lacked flavor. My dining companion had the lobster roll and said it was just OK..not up to the standard of a... More

I have been to Westfair before … but, for lunch, in August, when all of Westport is on vacation. This time, I went on a Saturday night, in June, at 6:15. When I got there, the wait was 45 minutes; during the time I was there waiting, the wait climbed to more than a hour and a half. Why? because... More

Almost invisible from the US 1, it's hardly a restaurant: few tables inside, and a couple of tables outside, and lot of people. You order at the window, pay (cash only) and wait for your name to be called. The quality is pretty high, which is a surprise considering the place. When I crave fish and chips, I drive to... More

It's fried. It's fresh. It's fish. It's amazing. Locals know this spot hidden away from street view. Call ahead for pickup and head to one of the nearby beaches to devour your crunchy gold. They have a menu larger than expected. They only take cash, everything is made per order and they can get very busy. This is not fast... More

This little restaurant is tucked off the road in a little strip mall. That said what they do (fried fish) They do very well. Fish and chips, fried clams, and clam chowder are all excellent. You go to the window to order to eat in or take out. There are about 4 tables and a couple of stools at the... More
