The trouble of having a health condition, where most of the menu is off-limits. This place was amazing. They gave me fried perch, no breading! I thank you. I could enjoy it with the rest of the family.

So nice to find a place like this in our area. Limited seating but right on the waterfront so you know where the fish comes from. No offensive frozen trucked half way across the country stuff here. We ordered the pickerel and were wonderfully happy with it. A light panko coating that kept the fish the star of the show.... More

Any time I'm in the area, I come here for their perch fish and chips. LOVE it. They are very good. There is limited seating inside and out, but the canal is right across the street - so you can enjoy the view with take-out.

Fresh Lake Erie perch! Yummy! The place is small and hot, and patio is cramped and confined, so we just take it outside across the road on the Promenade to eat. Coating is not too thick and fries are tasty. Can't beat it. More expensive than it used to be but isn't everything?

Delicious fish, but slow counter service. Adding additional counter help during peak times would definitely speed things along.

The pickerel was cooked perfectly with a crunchy panko/bread crumb type coating. A bit of a dive but is totally an old fashioned take-out fish & chip joint. Reminds me of the West coast where I'm from. Great with a beer on their patio. Save some for the birds hanging around.

I'll start by saying that because I'm English nearly all my fish experience has been sea fish. So, I researched this place a little, plus asked the nice young server, and decided on the pickerel. Very impressed I have to say. First time in my life for this. This is really set up as a take-out place with a patio... More

If you want Fresh caught Pickerel and Perch this is the place. If you like Fish and Chips you will love it. No thick batter done just right.. Try it out.
