When we pulled into this small spot (that also has a drive thru) and I saw their large sign featuring a crab playing a banjo I had to laugh -- but once inside the staff is so friendly and the food so good I could hardly laugh as I could not stop eating! The Fish and Chips is amazing and... More

This is going to be a very limited review. I've only had their fish and chips (several times!) and it is awesome. Get the larger order and it is more than enough for 2 people.The fish is fresh, breading light and cooked to perfection.

We went there without reservations pretty close to their closing time but were able to get a seat and food. The food is pretty good (not excellent) and for a reasonable price. They also offer beers from a local brewery that is very good.

This was a cute little spot with delightful staff. Very laid back. The waiter was helpful in identifying that their beef was local. The burger was quite good. My husband said his fri d fish was also very nice. Also local microbrew available here.

We came to this local bistro on the recommendation of friends and had a gift card to use. Small with seating for no more than 30 plus a patio. Local seafare as well as big burgers. They feature Arch Rock beers. Items tonight included shrimp tacos, crab cakes, mussels and cheeseburger. We will return.

All the food on their menu is great and cooked well every time we have eaten here. The service is fast and friendly. Would always recommend to anyone looking for... More

Used TA to find this venue for lunch. Located on US 101 it is an old funky type of place with ok service. Tables are limited. We had grilled cheese with very garlicky hand cut fries, and cod fish and chips, Food was very good. Recommend, Hope this helps.

Read good reviews so wanted to try it and was it ever worth it! I had steamers with focaccia bread, yummy and a small salad with Caribbean Mango Vinaigrette, so good and hit the spot. Add a glass of house white wine and I was satisfied. My husband had about the best burger he ever ate with homecut fries. Sergio... More

The restaurant was so small and inconspicuous that we drove right by it, found parking in the rear and though a bit muddy, we were happy to find a cheery waitress and what looked to be a well kept though empty dining area. We enjoyed an "Off the Hook" fish sandwich, salad, and what tasted like a great hamburger, with... More

We had a very good burger and fish tacos for lunch. French fries are made fresh, not frozen. Others had fish & chips which looked good too. Waiter was very helpful and he obviously liked his job. It's a very small place, appears to be a favorite of locals.

Thank Wade G
