My daughter and I love their fish and chips - we always get the one piece as it is more than enough food, fish is cooked to perfection and the home made fries are just right - price is right and refill on pop.

This restaurant is your typical fast food seafood restaurant. Although it is very overpriced. Food is okay, but nothing to get overly excited about.

My family stopped here. I had poutine and they had fries. The portion sizes were huge. The fries are homemade, crispy, and delicious. The other food we seen people getting also looked good.

Visited here a few days ago and thought it was alright. I wasn't very hungry so I just got a hamburger on its own, my boyfriend got clam strips and fries. It was pretty busy inside, service was fast considering. It was quite a good burger, they give it to you plain and you put your own toppings on. I... More

We make sure to stop in for fish and chips every year we visit PEI. Large portions - great value for your money. The fish (haddock) is always fresh. The fries are hand cut and made from PEI potatoes. Free refills on pop. They serve other seafood and have a kids menu too. The service is quick and always friendly.... More

Went here for a late supper after driving over three hours to get to Cavendish - they were just about to close but we didn't know that. The lady didn't say anything about that and just took our order - very nice of her. We found out when we decided we wanted a side of gravy and she have is... More

Went in for their whole clams. The first few bites were good, but the batter was too salty and the clams were too small.

After the beach we hit up this place. We thought it was expensive when we were paying. But we could see why it was priced the way it was when we received our food, huge helpings of delicious fish and chips. I got my usual clams and they were awesome. Really friendly staff and delicious food!

We arrived hungry but having seen some others' portions, decided to share a 2-piece fish and chips--so glad we did! It was so big that even between my husband and I, we did not manage to eat all the fries. The fish and its batter were very, very yummy. After checking out some of the shops and walking around for...
