“It was okay”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

We were on our mini vacay in Pismo and went here for lunch because my husband wanted fish and chips. So there he had it. The fish was good but the fries were just average. I had clam chowder and I didn't think there was enough flavor in it. I didn't finish it. And the service was a little rush.

“Really good, very basic”
Reviewed 15 January 2014 via mobile

We love to eat fish and chips at different places when on the coast so had lunch here. The clam chowder was very good especially if you pay the extra $2 and have it smothered in crab! The fish and chips were Hugh, we split a four piece and it was plenty for lunch for two and were good. The tarter sauce should be patented, it was wonderful. This is a mom and pop type place, nothing fancy, super friendly staff, reasonable prices and good food.

“Great for what it is”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

This is a basic, no frills family restaurant with comfy booths, great service and good quality, fresh seafood. The fish and chips was tasty and the clam chowder was very good. The portions are generous and one can even buy some Dutch products in the front near the register. Best bet in Pismo Beach.

“Excellent seafood -- where the locals eat!”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

Went here on the recommendation of friends-of-friends. The ambience is practically non-existent, but we came hungry and as the place was packed, full of families, we took it as a very good sign. The menu was extensive, but why order anything else when the name says "Fish & Chips"? The cole slaw as terrific, made with mayo (not Miracle Whip), shredded carrots and green peppers in addition to the cabbage. It was more than anybody could finish, too. The deep-fried fish was just as it should be. Service was prompt and friendly. If we're here another time, I might try some of the other menu items, but then again, why spoil a good thing? Highly recommend!

“Best Fish & Chips”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

The best battered fish & chips and the service was really great! I might have to go back to the area just for their fish.
