“Outstanding food and service!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

I love fish n' chips, so my test of a new seafood restaurant on the coast is to try it first. The Alaska cod was tasty and the pieces were good size. They use a light beer batter which does not overwhelm the fish. The french fries were wonderful...they have a coating on them which gives them a wonderful flavor. My wife had the salmon with sweet potatoes. I tasted it...outstanding. She was not sure she would give me a bite, it was that good. The food was hot and the service was prompt. I am not a huge fan of microbrews as there are so many lousy ones out there....but we tried the beer sampler and most tasted very good. We will definitely be back. You may want to call ahead to see if they are busy as the first time we stopped in last year there was a 1 hour wait and we didn't stay. We chanced it this time...and got right in.

“Mixed ... Food 1 beer 2 view 5 stars!!”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

So I've been to this place numerous times over the years ... And it's very consistent. The view is amazing !!! So chill ... But from there it goes downhill .... Beer "ok" ( and yes I know and love my micros ) Service " sporadic " sometimes good sometimes awful .. Food ... Mmmm always sub par ... Yet to find anything to recommend. But hey ... There are no other options and the place is packed ... So take it or leave it ... That is what it is.
