Enjoyed food and service but when restaurant busy it becomes too noisy. Can' t hear yourself talk. There needs to have something in place to buffer the sound. When weather is good better to dine outside.

They have a special on Tuesdays, $10 Fish and Chips. They were cooked to perfection. Crispy and not too much batter. I had the single piece which was plenty. There chips were slightly seasoned.
