Enjoyed the the food! Reasonably priced, and made fresh. Be aware they are only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday but worth the wait.

Picnic tables under a tin roof with a mulch floor, or picnic tables in the natural elements- your choice. The parking lot can look like Ypres or Flanders after a WW1 bombardment. The washroom is in the Community Centre next door. Meals are eaten with plastic cutlery on disposable paper plates. One stands in line to order, then waits for... More

All fried food. Tried the combo local Baha or something local fish with shrimp and two sides. Wish we just picked fish. Shrimp was not... More

Our go to place for a great fried shrimp dinner. We frequent the Fish House monthly. The outdoor picnic tables are rustic but outdoor eating works well.

The Fish House is open only three days a week. The food is so delicious. We love the clam basket. It's not much to look at, but the food is super. The service is great. You have to try this place for their yummy seafood!!!

We walked to The Fish House from Pirates Pointe Resort. You order at a window and sit outside, so the time of year and the bugs can be a factor. The food is fried, but very lightly breaded, fresh, and very well prepared. A great value... simple and unpretentious.

Great Local Restaurant. Mostly fried food, but crisp and not oily. Quality was exceptional. Service more than friendly, and you eat at tables under a canopy on the outside. Window service but you will not be disappointed. The young lady at the window knew her product and was happy to serve you. The quantity was huge and we needed to... More
