  1. YUM! While I usually follow a plant based diet, I WILL make an occasional exception for fish and chips! This looks delicious!

  2. Surprisingly, not many good options showed up when I looked up “fish and chips” on yelp… Soo mentioned this place so I want to go soon! We recently tried Fancy Fish in Mira Mesa and felt a bit of the same way about lots of fried items! They have a “fry-day” special for around $7.50 if you want to check it out with me this Friday! =)

      Hi Lynn –
      Fish is like the only seafood that Jake will even consider eating. We’ve tried a few places and he really loved the fish here. I can’t remember what I tried at the Fancy Fish now, ha. But I’d be totally down to go again! Is the “fry-day” special good for dinner, too?

  3. This is my fav spot in town for fried cod. The owner is really nice.

      Hi Soo –
      The owner here is awesome! He was so nice and friendly. Even though it kind of put me into a food coma, I’m already looking forward to going again (and making sure I get a salad next time, ha).

    Tried this place on your recommendation and really liked it! Onion rings were delicious. Loved the caddy of sauces that were nice & cold, right out of the fridge – condiment heaven! Ranch, tartar, hot sauce, ketchup, cocktail, what more could I ask for? Agree a bit more seasoning on the fry would be welcome, but we had fresh ground salt & pepper shakers on the table to add our own. Really hit the spot!

      Hi Dianne!
      I’m thrilled to hear you visited and enjoyed it! I also love the caddy of sauces to really customize the dish to your liking. I appreciated it was made in house, too. Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thanks for sharing your comments.

  5. I’ve heard good things about this place. Their fish portions look pretty meaty too. I’d be all over that shrimp!

      Hi CC – Oooo, I figured you’d have been here already but it’s not really in your neighborhood haha. I think you’d really enjoy the fish here! It’s flaky and the batter on the fish is really good! The shrimp is also really awesome. I preferred the jumbo shrimp over the smaller popcorn shrimp. So good!
