I’ve had fried cod worldwide with the exception of my home. Here, it was perfection. Served at temperature with (too?) thin fries and the best tartar sauce I’ve ever had. The coleslaw was a light, crisp, and fragrant salad - coleslaw does not describe it...More

Excellent food. Hard to get across lactose intolerance. Sent back salad with cheese. Mashed potatoes though good made me feel Sick to stomach for 24 hours. Steak was fork cutable and crabcake was delicious.
