“Loved the rock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Was amazed by the extensive menu offerings for such a small place. Grilled Halibut with mango salsa was great. Excellent sides of cole slaw and chipotle potato salad. Will definitely try again.

“Great sandwiches and fries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

Very nice small eatery. We had a veggie sandwich which fell apart but the veggies were grilled to perfection and seasoned so nicely, I did not mind. Partner had tuna sandwich and said it was one of the best he's had. And the fries here are quite good. Staff is friendly. They had chilled water with lemon- a nice change and refreshing treat. Their menu had a large variety of choices that we will return to try. Restroom was clean and nicely decorated.

“Great Fish Prepared Fresh And Locally Owned”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

The three times I've stopped here have all been excellent. The Red Snapper fish and chips are so good, I have ordered anything else except the potato salad, which is unique and has a little kick. The fries are nice and crisp and tender. They blanch them first, then chill them and then fry them to order. That 3 step process produces some of the best fries and they stay crisp.

This is locally owned and mostly supported by locals as it is 4 doors off the street in a little strip mall next to CVS Pharmacy driving West on Tefft St. when you get off Hwy 101.

This is not a sit down resturant. You order at the counter and they bring you your food, but drinks, etc. are self service. The people are very friendly and many are family members. The value proposition is excellent. With the Snapper and Chips you get 4 generous pieces of fish, freshly battered along with a generous portion of the fries.
