Great fish place outside of the resort

This is one of my kid's favorite places to eat. The service is super fast and the menu is good, especially if you like fried foods. Had the fish, shrimp and calamari basket with chips. Quality was above the price paid. This is not a dine in restaurant. You order at a window and grab a table by the... read more

Island Fish & Chips is in Kings' Shops on the backside facing the shopping center lake. Order at a take out window; tables and chairs are nearby, but they were all dirty. The fish and chips and fried shrimp are okay, average and nothing special. We wanted a quick, easy lunch (not at a sit down restaurant). Next time we'll... More

The fish was great/very fresh, but the chips are your normal everyday fries from a bag... also the calamari etc. was frozen (it's just the fish that is fresh). All in all, it's OK... nothing earth shattering by any stretch of the imagination... we've had a lot better fish 'n chips for the money :-)

We weren't expecting a great meal but it was really good! We had the mixed basket and the oysters were surprisingly good - often they taste frozen or old. The jambalaya fritters were awesome. Who says fried food is bad for you? Ok, it is but this is worth being bad.

Limited place to eat so we picked this take out fish and chips. I had the catch of the day with a couple of shrimp. The batter was a bit soggy but tasted okay. My wife had the Asian Shrimp basket which was just okay. The basket was deep fried taco style and it smelt like rancid oil - inedible.... More

Washed up from the days travels at some excellent attractions and thought to have a bite to eat before retiring for the night. No energy to table dine so I chose something quick that had "good" reviews. Should have popped back an expresso and gone for the table cloth and china...nothing like a marginal meal to spoil the day. Ordered... More

The fish was fresh and solid. They were huge slice of fish. One of the best fish and chips I've tasted.

Good fish and chips but crab cakes and everything else kind of blah. Ate outside with the wind and the birds so probably only worth it to take as carry out to the hotel or condo.

Its a great little fish and chip shop right on the water at Kings Shops. Delicious fresh fish and the coconut shrimp was good too. The breakfast burritos are excellent. You just order at the little window and eat at the table and chairs overlooking the water.

This place has decent fish and chips and also actually has very good seared Ahi tuna. We will definitely be eating here again
