It's cheap and the pieces of fish are HUGE! The service there is super friendly and gives it that personal touch. There's not a lot of room to sit and eat so if it's busy, expect to take your food elsewhere to scarf done. Then start walking to burn off those calories!

We went Saturday and got there around 12noon. I would suggest that time. By the time we left at 1PM, there was a half hour wait to order. Overall, the food is fantastic, we had the traditional fish and chips and they were perfect. Also tried the Baja tacos and the sauce is spicy and wonderful. Big pieces of fish... More

Food truck! But another one of those permanent food trucks with an eating area. Clean, fast, cheap, great food. Pro tip - get the fish & chips. Duh.

Was recommended by tour guide to try this place. Tried two times to go there, but both times they were closed. They close early some days. Third time was a charm. Fish was fresh and tasty. Had the fried ores also. Oreos were a bit soggy...but the fish and chips made up for it. Seating can be tough at times.

The best fish and chips / fish tacos I have had for a long time - huge portion and delicious. The deep fried oreos were delicious - batter tasty and the biscuit still kept its shape.

If you are looking for fish & chips this is the place! Just like you get at the best stands in the UK including the newspaper wrapping for take away. Crispy, fresh and tasty with malt vinegar and salt or tarter sauce. Seating is outdoors at picnic tables just off Jones Street. Service can be a little slow right at... More

As an Englishman I'd have to say that I was a little doubtful of all the positive reviews that The Codmother had on Tripadvisor; after all how could they possibly be better here than in the spiritual home of fish and chips? Well I can honestly say that in my opinion the fish and chips at The Codmother were better... More

Me and my Husband stop by to try the fish and chips after reading the positive reviews, we were not disappointed. I personally don't like seafood, but the fish and chips were AMAZING, I never tried anything so fresh, the flakiness of the fish and the freshness of the product were so good, the chips nice thick cut, and the...

Delicious. Delicious. Delicious. Coming from MN, the best fried fish is Culvers and this is the only place to beat them. This was exactly what I wanted out of fried fish, while on a vacation. I just wish I had more room in my stomach to try the deep fried oreos. The fish and chips were fresh and hot as... More
