The food was good, but we've had much better fish n' chips and chowder. Our server was friendly. We sat outside on the large patio, but the constant traffic didn't enhance the ambience.

Chowder was indifferent. The fish flavor was lacking. Questionable freshness. I really think this place could do more with the abundance of local seafood in this area.

This is the real deal. Great Fish n Chips. Great clam chowder. Everything on the menus is really done well. Service is always friendly and welcoming. The dining room is comfortable...weather permitting - the patio is fun and lively. This is a super local hangout....More

A Must! Cute place and the food is amazing! We had fish and chips with clam chowder, and the fish strips are good size and very meaty. The chowder was great and fries were crispy. Highly recommend!
