Good place for seafood in Hervey Bay

Good variety of fresh fish and seafood. I chose oysters, sand crab and mixed reef fish and was happy with the quality. (I didn't try any cooked fish and chips etc.)

On a visit to Hervey Bay my husband and I had really nice coral trout at Birney's on the Esplanade. After reading the great reviews of Maddigan's we decided to try them, which we did tonight. We ordered early before the rush but were surprised when we were told our fish (coral trout) and chips would be ready in just... More

A great range of food on offer, including a huge array of fish and general seafood. Excellent antidote to fast food

This place is the best takeaway seafood place in Hervey Bay by far! The salmon, salad and chips for lunch at $13.60 is great value and very delicious! They have lots of fresh seafood available as well.

Had a fish and chip lunch in the sunshine. Had the local barra and chips x 2 you could tell the fish was fresh and the batter wasn't too oily. There was a huge amount of fish we didn't get through it all so depending on your appetite consider sharing with some extra chips/potato scallops or fresh local prawns on... More

By no means cheap but where else can you choose your snapper fillet and have it crumbed (or battered) and fried for you? My son had local coral trout. The chips was generous, not greasy. You pay 40c for chicken salt in a small tub. There are a few seats and tables outside but be prepared to wat up to... More

We enjoyed fish, chips, calamai and dim sims at Maddigans while in Hervey Bay. Whilst not as good as our fish shop in Yeppoon it was very nice.

Pretty average for a fish and chip shop. No chicken salt on my chips when asked, store bough tartare sauce, and too oily. A little over priced. Probably wouldn't go back.
