We chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor's high ranking (44 out of 4600+) and we were very disappointed. If you like blackened fish, don't go there because they only grill - even if you request it to be blackened. The fish was dry the red potatoes were flavorless. If you want another drink you have to walk up to the... More

A local recommended this place to us--really a kind of hole in the wall place near the marina. But the food was really terrific--so fresh and deliciously prepared! We had crab cakes, oysters and an octopus taco. And even on a cooler day, the outside seats were great, with a little walrus show going on below us.

I enjoy having a lunch at Mitch's. You can sit inside or outside viewing the harbour. I love to order the salad with slice of grilled fish. Service is quick people are nice !

Went with a local friend for a seafood lunch. Ordered the fish served on salad. The fish was well prepared but very little of it. The salad below was not fresh greens and I pulled several pieces of browned lettuce. For the size of the portion and the low quality of the greens; poor value. The service was fine.

We come here with friends all the time and cannot get enough of it. Seat inside or outside and you get great waterfront views either way. There is always a good atmosphere and it is always packed with locals and people coming back from their fishing trips. Great Place!

Casual dining - you order at the counter and they bring your food out to you. Menu items are always fresh-caught. The onion rings were amazing!

Not gonna lie.... I'm not a seafood lover. This place was recommended by a local, and it was PACKED. We were lucky to find outdoor seating with a beautiful view of the marina. Everything was delicious. I had the fried plate (calamari, shrimp, fish and a crab cake). The crab cake was out of this world DELICIOUS!!! I would eat... More

If you are looking for great quality fish in a casual setting right by the docks then this is the place to go! Very affordable and delicious. Sit outside by the water to watch the fishermen at work on the docks and to catch an occasional glimpse of a seal!

We had dinner here one night. It is not much to look at. It is beside the marina so there is plenty to see while dining outside. Birds and even a seal while we were there. The food is order at the counter then they bring it to you. The fish was definitely fresh. Plus it tasted good. I would... More
