We came in at 7:20pm and to my belief you don't close until 8pm? The lady taking our order was lovely but when she turned to give the order to the lady cooking she said sorry and the cook gave us a foul look. Ill take my business else where

This place was crazy busy, always a good sign. We ordered for 4 adults and three kids, snapper, sweet lip, and mixed reef. The fish was wonderfully fresh and perfectly cooked, chips were a little undercooked. The orders got a little mixed up, I would suggest they maybe write on the paper bag what each order is. All in all... More

Enjoyed a snapper and chips pack and a plain hamburger. The crumbed fish was fresh and cooked in clean oil without any greasy taste. My wife was impressed with her hamburger. Good, clean and basic food done extremely well - thank you.

Okay, this is basically a take away seafood shop. There are a couple of table and chair settings outside and a park opposite. The other side of the park is the beach. Got the picture? Shop appeal is not where these folk have invested their energy, but you're not eating shop fittings! I have been here a few times and... More

It's a take-out chippy - does what it says on the tin - but good quality and normal prices. Bonus is that it is just over the road form the beach - so get your food and take it over for fine view dining. Gets crowded (must say something?), but take a ticket and wait in the sunshine for your... More

We have tried other Fish & Chip shops in Hervey Bay, but always go back to Maddigan's. The food is cooked to perfection and not fatty - obviously change their cooking oil regularly. Will not go anywhere else from now on.

Tried it at the recommendation of a friend. Was NOT disappointed. I had two teenage boys with me and even they couldn't finish (just). Calamari, sea scallops (really, you won't like the sea scallops, leave them, so I can have them ALL).. fish and chips. Just great value (they take cards as well!) and a gorgeous location.

Decent local tiger prawns & grilled ocean trout but not sensational. Frying oil might have needed a refresh. The aioli was good.

Love this place, you can tell the food is first class by the queues waiting on orders, always fresh and h and lovely to be able to enjoy your food on seats opposite.

We asked at our accommodation which was the best fish & chip shop to go to (if you're going to a seaside town, you want the best!). It was a little further to walk but we decided that it would be worth it. It was EXTREMELY busy when we arrived, and we must have waited at least 30 minutes before... More
