Lots of fresh Island fish selections, plus some special items like great quahog chowder and bluefish pate, in a shop that's run by the third generation of their family. Just the kind of shop you want to find.

This is a very good place for take out lunch or dinner. Fish and Chips, chicken dinner, Obama Burger, excellent! They were closed for a while, glad they're back and cooking again. Highly recommend . Food always prepared right in front of you, tasty, hot and fresh!! Great place on the Island.

If you're on the island, this is a great place to call in for a quick fish and chips or seafood takeaway. I had a lovely cod and chips which came with coleslaw, tomato ketchup and tartare sauce, and the blonde had a crab cake with a selection of salads. You can eat at one of the very clean tables...

John's has wonderful fresh fish. This year the selection seems especially good & of high quality. Sandy is making more takeout items too--try the new quiche.

My husband and I go to John's every year and get Sandy's Fish & Chips and usually enjoy them. This year the fish was awful, like it was old and refried and the batter tasted funny. We were disappointed this year.

I ordered a tuna sandwich with fries and a drink and a pound of cooked shrimp for a salad we made that evening. They have a great selection of fresh fish.
