We don't eat in but they have a good selection of frozen and fresh Perch and Pickerel daily that make a great fish fry. Pricing is reasonable.

My husband and I dropped in for lunch. He had been with his friends prior. I had perch he had pickerel, both were excellent. Don't go expecting a restaurant, this is a fish market/snack shack. Great prices. You order at the counter, take a seat at a little table and in 10 minutes you are enjoying. Can't wait to go... More

Very good fish - including the seafood platter with scallops, shrimp & more. They do run out of fresh catch so if you go near the end the may be out. They also close very early (7pm) even if there's a lineup out the door so be prepared.

The food is good, the prices a reasonable and the service is great. What else do you need? Maybe a view? It's not the Ritz but it has a nice view of the Welland Canal and don't forget, the food is great.

Whenever I find myself in the area I make sure to stop in. By far the best fish and chips, and so fresh from the lake. Highly recommended.

This restaurant is in my home town. We always get takeout fish on a Friday night. They are very busy because they are very good. A few tables are available inside but takeout is their specialty. Their perch dinners are excellent. The coleslaw crunchy and delicious. Best fish in town.
