“The fish was not fresh”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We come from fish country and were excited to have a fish place so close to our house. But when we got our broiled fresh it smelled so old-fishy that we gave it right back to them. They though it smelled fine. Hmmm... not a good sign. We did go back a few weeks later for a second try but had the same experience. The guy behind the counter seemed offended.

“Crispy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2010

We finally got to Pete's today, and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fish, its crispiness, and its delicate flavor. The sauce was addictive; I'm not sure what's in Pete's Red Sauce, but you just keep dipping the fish in for more. The fish was piping hot and seasoned just right. I don't eat much fried food, but Pete's fish was great--not too greasy. I was a bit disappointed in the "everydayness" of the fries, however. If you go, take cash (no 50s pr 100s) since they don't take any plastic.
