you better plan on standing in line to order and then waiting for your food. But it is hot and good... just not a place to go if your in a hurry. A small order of fries could feed 4 people... keep that in mind when placing your order

Brennan's Fish House

Reviewed By davechardon - Chardon, Ohio

Visited for lunch and ordered two half perch meals with fries and coleslaw
Food arrived quickly and was crispy and piping hot. Attacked the four pieces of perch first then worked in the county fair style fries which were perfect with some vinegar on them. Coleslaw was excellent as well. Had our fill of excellent perch as well as the sides and still had some left for the next day. Great attentive service too

I was in this restaurant with my colleagues in Dicember.The restaurant was cozy,American style with a large parking.The waitress was very kind and smiling!!I'm vegetarian and I don't like American food.I chose onion soup,delicious and very hot.The weather was very cold and snowy, the ideal dish to warm up.I chose "Arancini" with tomato sauce,very good!!! Have nothing to envy to the original Sicilian ones.I took some water to drink.I did two mistakes : I didn't specificated MINERAL water and without ice.I had a large glass with water (probably tap water) full of ice,taste awful!!(I hate the cold drinks..and do you remember the weather????..I wanted only hot drinks...my fault!!).I can't evaluated the ratio quality/price because my collegue had payed for all!!

We had a very lovely evening at Skye Restaurant. Our waiter , I believe Armando was very professional. The special that night was Cod, cooked perfectly and my husband had the scallops. Prices are reasonable especially when you taste the delicious food they serve. Thank-you.
