What made you want to work with food? When did you first develop that passion?
I've been in the restaurant business since 1985, and I'm a culinary graduate. I love to cook and create flavorful dishes, and I feel this shows in my diverse menu.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Even though we are known for our fish and chips, I also create daily specials for the health conscious, including a fresh grilled fish-of-the-day. Other popular items include fish tacos, the Fat Fish Sandwich, and New England seafood chowder.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
A wide array of fresh seafood, including sandwiches, fish and chips, soups, grilled daily specials, and salads. Every menu item is made from scratch, and we only use fresh-cut potatoes.
