We had really good fish and chips there last night. The owners are originally from Wisconsin, so it's probably the only place on the west coast where you can have Walleye instead of halibut or cod. The inside is nice and comfortable with lots of sailing charts up on the walls or under glass on the tables, we were happy to sit at San Francisco bay one and reminisce about when we first met...the pitcher of Sierra Nevada just helped the nostalgia trip.

The fries were the best we've had so far in Portland (we're on a fry quest). The menu is nice and small, you can have fried halibut, Walleye, oysters or spicy catfish on a sandwich or in a basket with fries. I liked the Walleye better, the partner liked the halibut better and the other guy we were with said the halibut was his least favorite...but they're all good. You can choose homemade jalepe~o or regular tartar sauce or cocktail sauce. They have some starters, soups and salads and a wasabi buttermilk slaw which was just ok (not flavorful enough for me). The prices are a little on the high side for fish and chips but it's because you're paying for quality. They say their canola oil is filtered 2x a day and they fry at the proper high temps so not much oil is absorbed. That's for sure, because the fish cubes were juicy and crisp and not at all greasy. They also note that they follow the Monterey Bay Aquarium guide to what fish is ok to eat.

They have a nice selection of beers (PBR to microbrews) on tap, and you choose from a glass, a pint or a pitcher for decent prices. Be warned that the pints are imperial pints, not the wussy 16 ozers we're used to.

Service was very friendly and attentive but not obnoxious.
