It's just a little shack on Willingdon Beach, but the fish and chips are very good. It's kind of expensive (but that's the state of our oceans these days). Kind of expensive for counter service. They are super friendly behind the counter and will readily tell you what is freshest.

We grabbed our food and sat down by the water watching the gorgeous Pacific lapping at Willingdon. It was a fairly quiet night, but some nights it does get quite busy.

Good sandwiches/paninis and treats. We were there on a weekend and it was very busy. I had a ham and brie panini and it was very good , service was good as well.

Huge portions is the only positive. Quite expensive for a "chip truck". We paid $23 for a 2 piece Halibut and chips. Was cheaper to eat at Coastal Cookery (and significantly nicer). I would search elsewhere.

We heard they had great fish & chips so went to see for ourselves.

It was a warm evening so it was busy and people were lined up to order & sitting at the tables waiting for orders. Right away I notice no menus, but people in front of me are ordering so I figure there must be one at the counter. I wait 10 minutes only to be told they arent serving anymore food, because they were supposed to be closed an hour ago. Guy in back is frying up a storm, fish and chips going out the next window... Where I come from you make hay while the sun shines. They really must not need my families custom, and I certainly don't want to support this type of venture.

After hearing many negative reviews of how the owners were treating customers/locals and how rude they have been, we decided to take our little ones for a treat and form our own opinion. Well when we got there, there was a lady with her little ones who was trying to talk to owners wife about how there daughter had hit there car with her door while getting out, the owners wife was so very rude to the other lady, calling her names, we were in shock that she could act like that infrount of her business and customers. We decided to take the littles to the park to play and let things calm down. We returned an hour later, when we walked up to the window we could hear the couple fighting, there was other customers around and having the same puzzled looks on there faces. We didn't want our little ones to be exposed to everything that was being said so we went across the road to the other ice cream place, other customers also did the same thing as us. I won't be going back to give this business my business and I hope others don't either as this type of stuff should not happen at a place of business and in frount of customers.
