Great spot to check out if you are in the area. Top items to order...Fish-n-Chips + Shrimp-n-Chips + Chowder. A little oily, and the fries could be cooked a little longer. But the character and atmosphere of a place is awesome! They also have 18...More

Food was good but it took a very long time to get. Fish and chips was excellent and my son had a hamburger which he loved.
