Susan's Fish-n-Chips is a local treasure on outer Forest Avenue, having achieved cult status since it opened in 1989. The buoys and other fishing decor straddles the line between charming and junky, but you're not there for the atmosphere, you're there for the fried fresh seafood. Homemade tartar sauce comes to the table in a Mason jar with a spoon, the batter encasing your haddock, clam strips or bellies is crisp and greaseless and the fish inside perfectly cooked. 4 STARS, JULY 28, 2013
