We wanted inexpensive but great food. Railroad Fish and Chips is always busy. There are just a few tables inside and outside, but the place is packed for good reason. The food was delicious!

The Chowder was very tasty with more clam bits than some other places I have dined. This was my second visit. Counter service very good. The only draw back was that no beer was allowed in the outside dining area. Strange for a tourist area....More

The fish and chips were fresh and very good. The hamburger was also pretty good. It is a quick place to eat and very reasonable. It is a bit like fast food.

The best thing to order is the shrimp & chips. I think it was 8 or 10 jumbo breaded shrimp. For a good price. I think it was only about $14.99. Tastes pretty good too.

Super hot and delicious fish and fries in Old Town. One of our group ordered a burger and said it was great. Lots of fun to sit on the boardwalk and enjoy the atmosphere.

Went there based on reviews and was not disappointed. The restaurant does not look like much, a kitchen and a small sit down area that looks like a waiting room. There is lots of seating outside in the shade on the old train platform. We...More

Service is super friendly, had the fish and shrimp with onion rings. The food underneath the batter was fresh. The so called beer batter seemed like it came from a box. It was crunchy but you could tell it was loaded with chemicals by the...More
