Fish and Chips, but not only

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... read 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

As a fish and chips affectionado, there is nothing better than a fresh piece of fish and steak fries deep fried in fresh oil and served hot. Westfair does it right, consistently, every time I'm down that way, which is about once a week. If you're a fish and chips fan like me you know that the coleslaw and tartar... More

The place is the corner establishment in a back area of a strip mall. Inside there’s a smallish front area, two or three tables and then behind what I remember as a case of bottled drinks, another table. Just to the left as you come in there’s a counter, and behind it a large work area. There’s a strong smell... More

Fried,steamed,baked anything,Lob rolls & fresh chowda (all 3! Kinds) are available. Do not be surprised if you can't find a seat inside this spot is great!

Westfair is primarily known for their fish and chips (and rightly so) but its so much more. The fish and shellfish are all excellent. As the saying goes - if it was any fresher it would still be swimming. I had the broiled Haddock dinner last week and it was terrific. Fresh, cooked perfectly and seasoned just right. The quality...

This place is not easy to find (hidden behind some other stores) and its certainly not fancy, but the authentic New England Lobster Rolls are just about the best you can find. We like taking them out either home or to the beach. You won't be disappointed.

Best fish and chips around. Prices are fair and I wouldn't consider expensive A little hard to find, but it's across the street from Stop and Shop in the back building. So if you don't look down the driveway you'll miss it. Call ahead and place order. They make everything to order, so it's always fresh and hot, but on... More
