The scallops are cooked to perfection, the french fries are cooked in peanut oil and are superb, and the cole slaw is homemade.

The lunch was fabulous, the lines are very long. It takes 30 to 60 minutes to place your order and then receive.

But well worth the wait!

The establishment has many famous regular patrons. It is a household name in upstate NY and anyone from out of town should make a point to stop in an take in the nostalgia. You will have a new regular stop after you eat here once.

This is a good place to eat if you like fried fish. I'm not a big fan of fried fish but my family seems to like the restaurant. I will eat their chowders and gumbo. The place is a local landmark so go for it.

Comments from people around me says it best. "The fish is so good... It's fresh and flaky.... the breading is so light.... not greasy." Similar comments about shrimp, scallops, clams and oysters can be made. The owners brag about the freshness of their seafood and how frequently the oil is changed.....and it shows. This is one of the few places that I can eat "fried" seafood and still feel good after the meal. Definitely a place to visit.

I had the fish and onion dinner and my wife had the scallops dinner. Both were excellent. We will rave to all our friends about this jewel.
