We got the large fish & fries & split it, & thankfully we did. It was huge! The haddock was delicious & the fries tasted fresh cut. Great food!

The portions are enormous. One full plate could feed four adults. The fish was great too many fries. Fish lacked salt. I word of warning be careful when ordering, plates are enormous. Don’t over order!!!

Casual outdoor dining. There are people lined up to eat here. Basically it is for “fish fry”. The menu is primarily this. I have to say this was the best fish fry I have ever had!!!! Would not want to miss eating here.
