The food is good ( foot longs & Fish ), the service is kinda slow some days. The bathrooms need work, and the interior is dated. But if your at the beach and want something to eat its the best spot.

Fish n chips is good. Meals come with the salad Buffett which is a nice treat to have before meal arrives. Great ice cream too :) Service a bit slow but it's always busy when I have been.

I had the perch, pickerel combo dinner. Perch was succulent & very, very good!! Pickerel not so much as it seemed mushy. The dinner included a vegetable / fruit salad bar, the quality of which was good. The place was busy however service was fast. Interior decor is average. Location is adjacent to the beach with two outdoor patios, one... More

We wanted to order ice cream and one Foot Long. it took quite some time for one of the several young people to take notice of us. The young woman who served us was unfriendly and had a sour expression on her face. She obviously did not want to be there. It took a long time for the Foot Long... More

We go here about 3-4 times a year. I personally always order the fresh water perch snack. It is always pretty darn good. The wife varies, she ordered Halibut snack this time and it was good according to her. I like the old timey feel of the place. I would normally have put up 4 stars but the little things... More

The perch is by far the BEST thing going for this place………but it is soooo delicious that it keeps us coming back time and time again. The battered perch is the BEST battered fish I've ever had. Unfortunately everything else is pretty ho-hum…………the fries are just plain frozen fries, the salad bar is extremely limited and as mentioned in many... More

Been going to this place for a few years. Can dine inside or in the summer you can order and eat outside and enjoy the view of the beach. Always good perch and decent portions. It's a nice experience if looking for an afternoon outing. Good spot.
