Lots of food, very quick service, the atmosphere is sort of quirky/quaint and the halibut and batter coating were very good. The only thing that stopped me from giving it excellent was it was a bit greasy, just a bit.

The sea food is excellent. The surroundings are kind of lacking but the service is good. A very busy crowed place but still a fun experience.

Ordered cod and halibut. They were grilled perfectly but they were tasteless... they needed some seasoning or a sauce. The salad was huge with a good mix of ingredients; the dressing was OK. I was happy with smaller fish portion sizes rather than the plate...More

Depends on the type of fish. It would cost around 14 for salmon up to 19 for halibut. I believe they have cod and haddock as well.
