Fish and chips

Came here for some takeaway fish and chips. The location was convenient with easy parking. You order at the kiosk window and await your number to be called on the loudspeaker. The food was good.....with the home-made potato cakes and lobster/crab cakes being the highlight. Well worth stopping by!

Over priced. Don't even give a slice of lemon with $87 dollars of fresh fish. Had to stand at counter and pour lemon juice on. Still had to BUY tartare and tomato sauce on top of that too. I think if you are paying close to $90 worth of food they could have given some sauce. Customer service terrible. The... More

Nice location, right on the water with a small, casual restaurant on one side, and take-away window on the other. The food we ordered (fish & chips) as takea-away was good but not extraordinary - and they couldn't offer some of the items on the "eat-in" menu as takeaway. But we can back and ate in the restaurant, and would... More

Meal and price was fare. View was beautiful. Dined in, Customer service was very flat, no smile, rude not just to us but others that were dining also. Not one of our best experiences.

Saltwater is a fresh seafood experience with varying daily blackboard specials and al la carte menu. The premium position overlooking the fishing harbour adds to the appeal. Philly, Janet and staff are welcoming and know us now for our return visits when on holidays. If Coquilles St.Jacques isn't on the menu...just ask! They are the BEST! They haven't refused me...

Average meal. Over priced. Staff were rude and had no customer service what so ever. Disappointing lunch stop ruined a nice day out

Wouldn't go back to this place, it might be ok if you just want plain fish n chips. Coffee was burnt and way to hot, a few of my chips were still cold on the inside, the salad was not worth eating. The oysters were way to overpriced for the quality. The only good thing about the place was the... More

We bought take away fish and other seafood at the side of the restaurant. Great choice of locally caught fresh fish cooked to perfection. Didn't go into the restaurant but looked attractive. If eating outside watch out for the seagulls!!
