Mackerel and chips, Snapper and chips are my favourite, so tasty. Once I had to wait 40 minutes because they get so busy at times

The fish and chips are awesome. Always get a potato scallop or two and some yum sea scallops. Maddigans never disappoints. Would certainly recommend.

Good local fish and chips, we usually have the sweet lip or local reef and the calamari hands are always lovely. We never have bad service, but it can be very busy so patience is part of the requirement, most locals avoid the peak holiday weekends though and most of us order before 6-6.30 to avoid the mad rush

OMG so yummy! The flake was so good, the batter was crispy and not too thick, the potato cakes were contained thick slices of potato. This was the fish and chips of my childhood memories. Great value, lovely staff.

Had the luck to find Maddigan's on a work trip to Maryborough and after a great conversation with the owner about the care needed to cook seafood I bought myself a muddie, some prawns and oysters for dinner. Heaven is a crab claw full of meat. Am heading back and have already ordered more.

Looking forward to awesome fish n chips in a great seafood location. Ordered 4 pieces of local Coral Trout that was displayed in the window but got something else. Our order either got mixed up or we got substituted. We got 6 pieces of crumbed mystery fish (suspect imported farmed barramundi). Chips were ok, prawns good.........I wish we got better... More

We were both so disapointed because the fresh fish... More

Each and every time we go to Hervey Bay, we have to have a meal from Maddigan's - By far, the best Fish and Chips you can get - both our kids rave about this stuff !!!! (And that's saying something when it comes to my 5 year old !!)

When we returned, our order was ready (5-10minutes early) Our order was handed to... More
