We ate here when we stayed at the TravelLodge nearby. Great fried oysters and fried calamari. A classic seafood shack. If you like a good fried seafood platter, this is your place. Nothing fancy, just good, solid food.

Depends on the type of fish. It would cost around 14 for salmon up to 19 for halibut. I believe they have cod and haddock as well.
