The seafood here is scrumptious. I enjoyed the dining atmosphere and wait staff. I love the location and wheel chair accessibility which is so important to me.

I have only ever gotten the haddie bits and/or fish and chips - it is always delicious!! Large portions for a fair price and the service is quick! Just picked up an order last night before heading over to Wendy's to grab a combo for someone else...my food from Vickie's was fresher, cheaper, and was prepared just as quick! I... More

Normally it is a real pleasure to eat there. Not today, as I mentioned to the server, the fries were like end of the bag, very small, dry, most 95% not eatable..... server said she will see what she can do. Never came back to apology. Requested a regular tea, what did I get? Hot water and no tea bag???... More

I read about Vickie's and decided to try it. Not disappointed. My wife had the seafood chowder which was loaded with fish, scallops etc.. I had the tis and chips. The fish was very fresh and delicious with just the right amount of batter to make a light, crispy coating. The fries were home made . . . . no... More
