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

Fish and chips are a great option for a beachside holiday - I recommend you telephone and order in advance as the lines out into the street every night of the week are testament to how good the food is at Maddigans. We had chips and whiting for 9 people - $30 - what a bargain - we just made... More

Great food, terrific value but if travelling with kids phone your order in early or expect a long wait. Best fish and chip shop that I have visited in a long time. Both fish and chips cooked beautifully and we fed 6 adults and 3 kids very cheaply.

We paid extra for local seafood, but I wonder why. At least if I had spent the minimum amount I wouldn't have been quite so disappointed that the quality of the meal was average at best. We only ate a few of the chips, and picked most of the batter off of the fish and then still couldn't say that... More

We had take away fish and chips from Maddigans on our first night in Hervey Bay--and were very impressed. The fish available on any given day are displayed on hand-written blackboards--everything is totally fresh and almost always local. I had coral trout in batter and it was wonderfully fresh and sweet in a light, crispy batter. Amazingly, a "portion" was... More

I can say Bill T is quite correct. Like him we often visit Maddigans as the fish is so fresh. WE get takeaways, go to the beach across the road. Queues are real long at times so yes if you can order in advance. Try the pineapple fritters as well. They just melt in your mouth. Great selection of shell... More
