Absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the outdoor tables by the river. Order the fish basket. It's delicious.

Never had bad food or service here. Always love the fish, Probably the only complaint is the parking, but if you get there early then that should not matter

The Fence isn't your typical everyday restaurant. Going there is like a trip into the past. When you pull in, you have 3 different ways to dine. You can go into their dining room, and order from your booth (there are no tables) or you...More

Arrowhead is correct. The Fence is only open on wknds in the off season and will close very soon. Might I suggest May's up the road. Their fish is very good and you'll be able to have an inexpensive lunch as well. I've been... More
