For a slightly cheaper option with good food and quirky dining atmosphere this place is a wonderful option right in the center of the Spit. Sometimes this place will have a crazy line (the food is good!), but other times its a much quicker and...More

Had our first lunch on the spit and the Big Dipper Chipper. The proprietor prepares everything fresh as you order. Of course, fish and chips are the specialty, but one of our party also ordered a panini that was fantastic. Don't be in a hurry...More

The fish was great, the fries were good as well. It is in a Double decker bus, which ads some fun to the experience. The sandwiches are huge, and could easily be split between two people. Kids would love the bus.
