Seniors meal was perfect. Homemade beans with bacon, fishcake was crispy on the outside and delightfully soft on the inside.

This used to be a chip truck and they created a restaurant from it. It's small but not claustrophobic and they have great take out. The food is all fresh and home cooked. Great place to visit and eat.

We visited twice during our short stay in North Sydney. Both the scallops and fish and chips were delicious. French fries are hand-cut and cooked to perfection. Scallops were sweet and tender and plenty of them on the plate. Although the dining room is small, it is very clean and pleasantly decorated. I can't praise the service enough. Quick, friendly...

I'd call this more like a non-corporate fast food place. Pretty much burgers and some fish and fries. Cheeseburger was decent but overall nothing to write home about. If you are looking for a nicer upmarket meal, this place is not for you.

We came here accidentally since the Lobster Pound was closed and it is in the same area. We were in a hurry so we only had hamburgers, fried and a soda. All were great and I am ashamed to say that I ate most of my wife'd fries which were hand cut and very fresh. Nice people and a very... More

I wouldn't call it homestyle cooking but rather deep fried cooking. No complaints about food. Best bacon cheeseburger I have had in a while. Fries are homemade and delicious. We would love to have this around home after a night drinking - definite hangover cure. Prices were fantastic. An appetizer, two pops and two meals for $31. Can't top those... More
