Excellent lobster roll and fish and chips received again. The attention that we received by all the staff was exceptional!

Glad fish and chips are back on my menu! We stopped in after shopping as I wanted something other than a fast food burger. The portions are large, the fish was fresh and the fries were many. If you have a big appetite, this place is for you.

Fish 'n' chips get 5-stars for freshness, lightness, portion size and taste. Chowder gets 5-stars for ingredients (chunky, delicious!) but 3 for the broth, which is a little weak.

Great food & service! The only reason why it's not a 5 is because the lobster wasn't as succulent as I would have liked, but it's not Lobster season so it's understandable.

Stopped here for a quick lunch with family and friends while on our great Canadian East Coast trip and let me tell you we were not disappointed! Fish n chips was amazing and the chowder had a ton of seafood with huge chunks of lobster. Definitely recommend!!
