Delicious Fish and Chips. Super friendly staff. Not sure if people were expecting a 5* restaurant from a roadside stand but keep up the good work.

Ordered the dory, blue cod and chips. All of them were really disappointing, possibly the worst I've ever had. Fish was somehow dry and the chips were dry and a little burnt. Especially as the blue cod was twice the price at almost $10. The...More

They must pre-cook the chips and the fish to try and get them out quicker. The chips were really dry and tasteless. The fish was even worse and we couldn't even eat it. You could tell the fish was precooked because it wasn't even hot...More
