Searched the board and didn't find anything-- anyone try this out yet?
Fresh fried fish and chips, plus homemade desserts, apparently.
Depending where you are coming from...it is decent but not worth a trip. My Domenican barber is next door so I will stop by for a fish sandwich.....the neighborhood is kinda seedy.....gentrification is taking hold......
I went there 2 weeks ago. The fish (3 or 4 kinds to choose) & it's batter was amazingly good. I was also impressed that it wasn't greasy. The fries were also very good. The dessert looked definately homemade but I didn't try it. There are only 1 or 2 tables. We took ours to go & then followed Main Street to the end down to the park & hudson river & had an amazing view & sunset. Worth a trip especially for the setting. P.S. They give you way too much food & it's still inexpensive.
My family and I were driving through Haverstraw on a Sunday aftrernoon when we all wanted to stop to grab a bite to eat on the road. Children wanted pizza so we pulled into this small shopping plaza. Two doors down from the pizza shop a sign caught my eye - Off The Hook - fish & chips. I thought - I'll pick up pizza for the kids but I want fish & chips. Sure enough it was the best decision we made. My husband and I loved it. We purchased the traditional fish & chips with sides of mac & cheese, collard greens, homemade coleslaw & potato salad. All was great and we had left overs, too. I thought it was excellent and can't say enough of how delicious and fresh everything was.
