Fish and chips were delicious! Service was great! I came expecting great food and wasn't disappointed! And glad there was a nice little dining area inside to be out of the rainy weather. A fun experience!

Ate here with our teens last week, but there was a space heater inside, super friendly staff, hot cider and tasty fish and chips. I liked the halibut best, my husband loved the salmon.

I have wanted to go to this restaurant for many years, but it was never quite at the top of my list, although many friends have raved about it. The fish and chips were good, but not outstanding. Perhaps it was because my expectations had been built up too high. Bottom line is that it was good, but there are... More

They do deep fried fish, clams, etc. Outside seating in a courtyard. People watch while you eat. Salmon was good. Novel little place for a fast lunch.

This was my first visit and I think the halibut fish & chips was the best fish and chips I ever had. Usually I avoid 'beer battered' food because the batter is far too thick (I suppose that's because it's a lot less expensive than fish) and so it picks up lots of cooking oil.

I was intrigued by the bus and patio setting, but what a surprise. Some of the best fish (with chips) I've ever had.

Great fish and chips (can choose from cod, halibut, or salmon; two or three pieces). Greasy spoon greasy feel but authentic and malt vinegar available for the fries. There is a very small 3 table indoor but unheated area otherwise all outdoor eating.

It was a bit of a wait but well worth it! Good luck finding it open though. It seems to be closed frequently.

Had the cod & chips and it was absolutely wonderful. Everything tastes fresh...the tarter sauce was heavenly. Will definitely go back the next time we are in the area.
