We ate here on a recent trip. My wife and I ate the fish and chips, which were very good, and my son ate the clam chowder bread bowl, which he said was excellent, and he is hard to please!

If you don't have time to enjoy one of the brilliant restaurants on the pier, consider a quick helping of fried calamari and a soda. At least you can say you ate on the pier. ;)

So many choices to have with chips!! Opted for the Calamari. Very tasty, crispy batter. Plenty of condiments on offer. Tasty food. Quick service. Really cheap. The indoor seating is a bit rundown and pigeons everywhere.

I stop here for calamari and chips often. Both are pretty good. They serve the calamari rings and tentacles rather than strips (I like rings best). I've had the fish and chips here too, its good crisp battered fish. The reason I come here is...More
