Delicious fish and chips! Good service. Cash or check only. Very crowded on a Friday night during Lent but worth the wait.

This is one of Detroit's hidden gems. Friendly staff, no-frills interior, fresh fish flown in daily from Halifax and fried perfectly. Great fries and unique cole slaw - not tart, not mayonnaisey. They've been around for decades for a reason.

I've been wanting to try this place for a long time and finally was able to do so. The fish and chips were excellent. The service friendly and quick. Not a fancy place by any means but very good! We'll be back.

Truly the best Fish and Chips on the planet. We came here as kids with our parents and I'm thrilled to see they're still at it-and doing it well, too!
