Had lunch here, excellent. Fish was fresh and cooked to order, great sized portions, quick and friendly service. Need to do tea for those that like a cuppa with their fish and chips.

We drove around Hervey Bay for a while looking for a fish and chip shop and Maddigan's was by far the busiest. That's always a good sign. So glad we stopped there because it was fantastic. Easily the best fish and chips I've had in QLD. The prices were very reasonable, the place looked clean, staff were friendly and the... More

Couldn't believe how much we got in our order. Very generous sizes. Mouth watering fish and yummy chips. Then go to the ice cream place next door for sweets!!

Since moving to Queensland five years ago have not been able to find a decent fish and chip shop and I have tried plenty! But absolutely loved Maddigan's. Not oily cooked just right and great tasting potato cakes, bit far to drive from Brisbane though now I'm back home. Highly recommend.

Great friendly service and a great range of cooked and fresh seafood. The grilled salmon, salad and chips is great value and delicious, served on a tray so you can take it across the road and eat it with an ocean view.

Tried to order over the phone and the service we received was terrible. The young girl was rude and unhelpful. We ended up ordering from Seafront Fish and chips. Will think twice before ordering from there again.

We will definitely not come back again. The platter we had was not tasty, one of the worst seafood we have ever eaten in Australia :( the batter was too thick and the fish under all those floury batter was rubbery. Did not taste fresh. The seafood sticks were tasteless. Generally under-seasoned. The more flavourful ones were the nuggets and... More
