Best fish and chips! Sooo fresh and super quick service. Plus added bonus of doing a little shopping for quirky little gifts while you wait.

A little out of the way but well worth the small trip - a good selection of fresh fish that they cook either battered, crumbed or grilled - none are pre-prepared. You pick the piece of fish (about six varieties to choose from the day...More

Thank you for your review. The "thin crispy batter" is made with local flour from the Cummins Milling Co. We love to cook our seafood the best way (simple) for you. No fancy sauces needed.

This has some of the best battered oysters and muscles I have tasted. The smoked chili squid is also good but beware, it is hot. Fish can be purchased either cooked or raw. I thoroughly recommend this place.
