Came here during our beach day. The food was made to order, fresh and absolutely delicious! We rate food from all of our travels, and my husband said these chicken tacos were his #1! We ordered Chicken tacos, chicken tenders , a burger, ice cream...and a milkshake. Very nice staff and nice view from the tables.More

We stop here for lunch, the menu had many choices of seafood and prices very reasonable. The staff was friendly and the food was excellent. We had the fried fish tacos combo, fried osyter po-boy sandwich.

We just stopped by and checked the menu, It looked good, so we ordered from menu calamari appetizer and bowl of clam chowder. It was some of the BEST clam chowder that we have tasted. Nice creamy and full of clams.

Stopped here a couple days ago. It’s right on the strand by the pier. Large selection of food on the menu. We ordered a half order of fish and chips. It was enough for two people. The fish was crisp, so were the fries. This...was a good plate of food. I would return.More

I heard so many good thing about Tin Fish in Trip Advisor, so I decided to try. I ordered Calamari Appetizer and Grilled Sword Fish Plate. As I expected, it was a lot of food! Calamari was fairly good, but it was mostly batter. For...$14, I expected more. They gave me so many Sword Fish pieces, but it was so tough. I thought they knew how to cook fish, so it was very disappointing. Maybe their specialty is fried stuff. Their waffle fries were pretty good. Since they are right by the pier, they don’t need to worry about people not coming, but I felt ripped off in tourist trap.More

We just stopped by after watching the sunset on the pier for a little bite to eat. The service was friendly and the fish tacos were flavorful and large. Great value.

I didn't want anything fried, so I ordered the caesar salad yesterday (Feb. 17, 2020) with mahi mahi and shrimp. Cost: $20. It turned out to be nothing but lettuce and four small shrimps, which were very tasty, and a couple of small pieces of...fish jerky. It was that tough. I couldn't even get the plastic knife through it. After having waited more than 30 minutes for the salad, I ate what I could and disposed of the remainder. Most disappointed.More

The clam chowder is wonderful along with the cod fish & chips. Prices are reasonable and service was quick & friendly.

There was no wine or beer on the menu and I didn't see any at the other places either. We looked!
