This small little restaurant appeared continually busy (a good sign!). The staff were pleasant and helpful during our counter ordering. I ordered the fish and chips. This little place produced the best fish and chips I have had. No oily taste and perfect doneness. The...More

Hands down best calamari I have ever had! Very light batter, very fresh, perfect texture. Worth the line at the door. (Wine selection is very limited - it is a pretty casual restaurant.)

Always fresh, spot on, reliable service and easy to access off old Highway 1. Sophia and her crew have been my fav for 10 years . It's authentic and never a bad meal.

Very good fish and chips. The chowder is light but not much taste. Very reasonable price. Parking is easy.

These fish and chips were just great. Crispy on the outside, juicey. Service was quick. You order and pay then sit down. They were not busy when we got there, which is good because parking can be limited. Seems to be totally a local place....More

Doing a little chowder tasting tour of our own, thought we'd stop here. Very quick service with a smile. The chowder was different, with many extra ingredients, but it had good flavor.

It's a small place but friendly people. It was a counter order meal and they brought our food to us. It was definitely a 'local' hangout where the food was good. Nothing fancy about the place for sure. The few little tables were close together...More

I suggest you call the restaurant. It is a small place and most likely they will take the holiday off.
