I just moved to Westport, and being from the U.K. I was pleased to find a fish and chip shop walking distance from my new home. This cash (and check) only place is a hole in the wall with the best fish and chips I've found since leaving Blighty 20 years ago. The fish is fresh, the batter crispy. There... More

The fish and chips are generous and well-prepared, a paradigm for other take-out establishments. The clam chowder was excellent as well.

What the sign says. Perfect for a quick fresh lunch of fish and chips. Great for takeout too. Fun decor.

I miss not living closer to this exceptional little "hole in the wall" because it's always great! Fresh is the operative word here. And they're open all year round. On this visit, my wife and I shared a lobster roll and a broiled swordfish dinner to eat in. Now, don't expect 5 star seating and a luxurious dining room here.... More

Very good fish and chips and lobster roll! Fulfilled my craving to round out the Summer. I'll be back again. 👍🏻

This is where I go when I get a 'jones' for fish and chips, clams, scallops and, well, just about any seafood dish, and I don't want to eat them sitting in a restaurant. Sure you can grab a table and eat it here but that's not what they're selling. This is possibly the best take away food joint in... More

At a family wedding a friend from Florida asked if I knew of a Fish & Chips spot in CT called Westfair. I admitted no, but was intrigued and decided to follow-up. With Fairfield County traffic what it is, it took two attempts to get there. But was it worth it. Having lived in lower Fairfield county for 48 years,... More

I reviewed this place in Summer 2011, and gave it five stars. Five years later, I'm happy to report that it's as good as ever. A couple of evenings ago, my wife and I bought a couple of Fish and Chip dinners, plus a side order of belly clams, and took them to Southport Beach, for a relaxed meal while... More

We live a few miles from this fish and chip place and have loved it for years. This summer, we took a trip to bar harbor Maine, sampling seafood as we went. I am actually writing this from a hotel room in New Orleans where we, on another family vacation, are eating some very tasty seafood in some very authentic... More

Was in the area and decided to stop here with the kids based on the reviews. Walked in and as we were looking at the menu noticed no credit or debit cards accepted. Really??? Ridiculous - left without eating because we had no cash on us.
