perfect way to have lunch and stroll the pier

I have eaten there a number of times and have always been pleased with the food. Especially like the onion rings, fish and chips, and fried zucchini. There is always a lot of activity at the Oceanside harbor, the views and shopping at the small harbor shops is great fun.

You would think that a restaurant right on the harbor would be decent. The fish and chips were greasy and tasteless. French fries needed a LOT of seasoning although they were served hot so they have that going for them. The clam chowder tasted like progresso. We were there in the evening so maybe if you went for lunch the... More

I have been going here since I was a teenager. The fries.. The fries.. More expensive these days but isn't everything. So worth it though. Still love it. You can't beat the view. Great place to go by yourself and get a yummy meal and walk about!!

Had lunch after the whale (actually dolphin)-watching boat trip. Good and generous portion of fish and chips. Spouse had the grilled chicken sandwich - very good. Order at the counter, refillable soda drinks. Good value for the money.

Had the chips and fried clams. Quite pricey and quite greasy. Not at all flavourful .. A little tough.

Really great, fresh fried fish and zucchini. You can enjoy the unique dining area or sit outside in the fresh air and listen to the ocean. Old-school, fresh and moderately priced.

Stopped in for lunch and shared a two-piece Fish and Chips with my spouse -- definitely right size to share and very good. Fast service and you can sit inside/outside and it gets busy around lunchtime. Also tried Fried Clams which were OK -- recommend staying with the Fish & Chips. Cole Slaw also quite good.....

The food was just ok and the restaurant wasn't very clean. Overpriced for the quality. We peeked into the kitchen and we're sorry we did. It was old and dirty looking too. The tables were sticky and we had to search out full bottles of condiments.
