Great location right by the Oceanside pier. Fish tacos were really good, as were the waffle fries. We would definitely return if we are back in the area.

Just perfect! Stumbled upon this treat of a dine, and to my surprise, it truly want a Gem* Their Service, portion size & Food Quality was just what the Doctor ordered at that time. I look forward to returning soon.

I didn’t expect a large serving of fresh fish coming from a little walk-up place at the beach! Really good fish and chips, fish tacos, coleslaw.......each order is cooked while you wait, no hot lights here! Awesome and reasonably priced for such fresh fish!

Really excellent fish tacos, waffle fries, and coleslaw. Fun outdoor location on the Strand near the pier. Watch the beach action, soak up the sun, and enjoy the best fish taco around.

We love the fish & chips here. Fun place right on the beach-tables in the sand-ocean 50 feet away. Good food at a fair price & quick "takeaway" service.

This stand-alone food booth is so close to the pier and is open more often than not. Some of the other stands only open on weekends during the low season but this place is reliable. Everything looks so good and, judging from the picnic tables,...More

Great quick food. The coleslaw is soooo good! Unfortunately, I had to abandon mine and offer it up to the bees. They were in the area that time of year, and you don't argue with bees. :(
