“Fantastic bakery, fun atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We had lunch here twice while on vacation recently and the food and service both times were great. We had sandwiches and veggie burgers on their fresh made bread as well as freshly brewed coffee and pastries. The veggie burgers are the best we have ever had. The pastries and coffee were amazing. This place is crowded and you have to move fast to grab an empty table but the employees and patrons were all friendly and welcoming.

“Great fish taco”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

The halibut fish tacos at Splashes were delicious! Big chunks of lightly grilled halibut with pineapple salsa and an avocado sauce served with cabbage on fresh corn tortillas!

“Nothing to write home about”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

This place is just another fast-food restaurant, nothing special. It was conveniently located, just 2 minutes from our hotel - so we gave it a try. We had the (very average) Clam Chowder, a Fish Taco (the best of what we had) and some fried fish with Chips. In case you like fried food, you might like Splash Cafe. But in case you like good food, skip this place.

“not tasty”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

Had dinner. Staff very friendly. Fast service for food. No seats available so finally sat at an outside table on a dark and cold night. No lights or heaters turned on outdoors even tho several of us were there. Fish and chips not good. Fish was chewy and tough...either under or over-cooked. I could only eat fish by coating in tartar sauce to disguise taste. Inexpensive food and, obviously popular, as crowded. Will not return.
