Hey gang.

Today I am unable to open Nailed It for reasons out of my reach.

I am a bit sorry about it because I would love to be at Jökulsárlón to make memories with you, but unfortunately not today.

See you tomorrow though, I hope?

Take care and enjoy the lovely rain today.


Good morning to all of you.

This weekend, Nailed It will be closed until Monday.

I have some important things to attend to. We, the people from my class at school back when the sun was young, are celebrating a milestone together.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend at Jökulsárlón and I recommend t...

Hello good people of the world.

This weekend, 4. and 5. of September, Nailed It will be closed. It is because my boss, (myself 😊) told me to take two days off.

See you next Monday.

My best,


Góðan daginn gott fólk.

Mig langaði að láta ykkur vita að Nailed It verður lokaður frá og með deginum í dag til 25. ágúst n.k.

Ég er að sinna fjölskyldunni þessa viku og ætla að njóta þess í botn.

Takk kærlega fyrir komuna til mín í sumar og hafið það gott þarna úti. Það var virkilega gaman að...

I just came across this very nice video made by one of our nice visitors.

Please enjoy watching.

Remember, Nailed It is just across the road from The Diamond beach, At Jökulsárlón to be exact. Kind of miss that in the video.

My best to you,


Dear friends.

Nailed It has been closed from March 22 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will remain closed until later this year.

Hopefully I will see you this summer?

Stay at home, stay safe and take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Amazing!! Best fish & chips with batter that just melts. The owner is the sweetest and made sure to squeegee off the benches for us. Try the magic dust! Truly a can’t-miss for this area with excellent prices. Will definitely be back on our next trip!

Very delicious fish and chips. The fish was fresh and was crunchy. The chips was so good. Top! If you are in the area, I will recommend you to try it. And if I‘m back here, I‘ll definitely go back here again ;)

We've eaten fish and chips throughout our ring road trip, and this place is by far the best I've ever had in my life! The cod was fluffy and fresh. It was so tender and moist, cooked to perfection. The batter is crisp and light. Sprinkle a bit of the magic powder too! (it's amazing). Could've been 2x the price and it would still be worth it! I'd go out of my way to drive back to get it again if we had more time.

Nailed It Fish and Chips was started in the beginning of June 2018 by me, Karl Johann Gudmundsson.

I am an Icelander, living close to the town of Höfn so yes, I am a local.

At Nailed It Fish and Chips you will get delicious, hand battered fresh fish served with a smile. 

My fish of choice is a locally caught Atlantic Cod from a fish producer from my hometown who I used to work for as a fisherman some years ago.
