Good portion of fish. The breading was somewhat hard, not thin or flakey. Fries are good. Also, had the pickled veggie for $2.

Stoped here for lunch. My wife had a hamburger with fries. It was very good. I had the fish sandwich. Did not care for the special tartar sauce. Very noisy and a bit pricey.
