Large portions, fresh seafood. What else can one expect! I particularly enjoyed the seafood chowder. Each spoonful was crammed with deliciously cooked treasures of the sea. The fish tacos were also amazing

Dinner for two on a Friday night. Good menu choices at reasonable prices, plus good selection of beer and wines. We ate fish and chips and Sesame crusted fish. Both very tasty and good value. Both included a well dressed salad. Efficient and cheery service.
