    review rating 4  the food was very good but it was way to expensive. i got 2 peices of cod and some fries for like 15-20 bucks. this place would have 5 stars if it was not for the price. but it has a great atmosphere and great fish. overall pretty good.

Also the place Is decorated very cool! Wish we had this place in our town! We got 2 meals with non alcohol drinks and a large bread bowl of lobster bisque, ran $38 bucks.

    review rating 5  This is our second time here after six years - still the same great taste! The shrimp and perch basket was delicious - so was my wife's choice of ceaser salad with fried white fish. Decently priced - highly recommend this place!
