Restaurant itself looked very good, but we just had a takeaway. Very good variety of fish dishes and each meal includes a drink and choice of sauces

I'm a local and any time I'm in the mood for fish this is the only place I will come. Great portions for reasonable prices and some of the tastiest fish you will ever have. No matter how much of a queue there might be I would always stick around and wait, it's worth it.

We enjoyed our seafood dinners very much. This is a small restaurant with only a few tables, so it's best to book ahead if you can. The seafood is fresh, and very well prepared in an open kitchen at the back. We can attest to the Brown Crab claws (like small Stone Crab claws), Salmon, and Lobster as each being delicious.

Like everyone else, we waited in line to eat in this small, hectic restaurant. We waited about 15 minutes but I'm so glad we did. The service was very efficient and friendly. The fish and chips were delicious. We didn't realize how large the portions were so we ordered a bowl of soup as an appetizer. The entree was large and after eating the soup we were unable to finish eating the fish!!! The restaurant is quite small and cozy so if you are a party of two you will undoubtedly be sharing a table. In fact, we watched a single diner being seated directly across the table from another single diner. So, it's a nice way to make new friends!! The food was great, the service was wonderful and the atmosphere was lively and fun. We really enjoyed our meal there and can definitely recommend it.
