Madigans is easily the most popular takeaway fish and chip shop in Hervey Bay. There is a good choice of fish varieties and the kids size fish pieces with chips and a 'Popper' fruit drink are great value. Madigans is located on the Esplanade opposite a small park with picnic areas and a kids... read more

One of the best places for fish and chips in Hervey Bay. Across the road from the beach and park. Fresh seafood also available.

You choose the type of fish you want and they fry it for you. There are two batters to choose from. We had a picnic lunch at the park across the street. Very tasty

I was advised to try Maddigans for a fish & chip meal by a local. After deciding to have our lunch by the bay, seafood was our first choice. Maddigans were very busy with a constant flow of customers placing their orders. We had no problem ordering for 4, all requesting fish cooked different ways. Nothing seemed to be a... More

Recommended by David from Tower Court Motel, so we called in to pick up dinner on Saturday night. It was really well and truly worthwhile as we were greeted by a bright and bubbly young lady on the cash register. What a range of seafood, it took us a while to choose. We settled for some beautiful oysters in batter,... More

If you like a seafood shop that provides fresh cooked and uncooked product in ample quantities with minimal waiting time then Madigan's on the Esplanade at Torquay is the pace to go - the cooked fish fillets are large supported by great crumbed calamari, potato cakes and a big family sized serve of fish Mike & Jill Harvey

Maddigan's Seafood have excellent fish and chips. The calamari is good also. They are across from the beach and it is convenient to have fish and chips on the beach.
