The beer-battered haddock at Griffin Claw Brewing Company is the crispiest, crunchiest we’ve ever had. The portion was huge, so bring your appetite.

For a hearty portion of Fish & Chips, Republica is sure to satisfy. Their Atlantic cod is beer-battered and served to a perfect golden brown, but what separates them from the crowd is their signature tartar sauce.
