We went on a warmer than normal day and this place had no AC. I was about to just have lunch inside until I noticed a side door that has an outdoor eating area. It was much cooler under the umbrellas. The super sized fried seafood platter for 2 was very good and all we could eat. Don't go here... More

Well, I had seen Susan's Fish & Chips featured on Food Network and expected an informal restaurant with exceptional food. I got the informal restaurant, but unfortunately the food I ordered with my family was below par. My husband ordered the shrimp platter, and he described it as "up eventful." I ordered the lobster roll. Although I was told the... More

The food was really good, and the prices are reasonable. The only thing I will add to this place is air condition. It is soooooo hot inside.

My husband wanted to try it. I don't eat seafood, so not many choices. It was a unique experience. Service was very friendly. Parking lot small. The toilet up high, almost hit my head lol. It's good for a "had to see what the fuss is about."

My son and I had the fried shrimp dinner which was plenty for the both of us. We also had the clam chowder. The shrimp dinner was popcorn shrimp that came with fries and coleslaw. The shrimp and fries were great. I'm not a fan of coleslaw, but even that was good. The clam chowder was very good. Nice and... More

Great seafood reasonable priced. Picnic table seating. Could use air conditioning but other than that good place to eat.

Quite possibly the best fried seafood and onion rings! All of the food is made to order so it's super fresh! The actual building is an old garage so it is not anything fancy but we go for the amazing food not a pretty location.

Dropped in for take-out, very hot & humid traveling with fido. Very good lobster roll with fresh cut fries & battered fried pickles also very tasty. All prepared fresh to order. If you don't require fancy dining but enjoy freshly prepared good food, Susan's is a good bet.

We looked forward to this, based on other reviews. The description of "rustic with a side of tacky" is right on... it's nothing fancy but was fine for a quick lunch. Everything is made by hand, fresh to order. Sadly, the fish was incredibly bland.... it would have REALLY benefitted from some salt and pepper in the cornmeal. The onion... More

Came here based on a PG story. The food is quite good and exceptionally fresh. They make your food as you order it--nothing is frozen. Service is fast. Staff, friendly. Can't wait to come back.
