We ordered food for 3, a little mean with the portion of chips. Burgers were pretty good. Heard the microwave ping a little too often. Appeared to be well used by locals.

We ate at the Crusty Crb the first day we arrived and then were told about the other fish and chip shop. By far the best spread, service and quality was the Crusty Crab.

Very expensive and the most disgusting gush I have ever had especially at $9 a piece for smaller than my Gand. Ate here a few times(not by choice) & doesn't get better.

Easily the WORLDS BEST Fish and Chips!!! The Fish is super fresh and the batter is perfect and crispy. I fly back from Australia regularly just to indulge in this amazing fish and chippery. Potato and Pineapple fritters are perfect and the Burgers could not be better! Set in beautiful Russell you will not be dissapointed!!!!

This has to be the most expensive takeaways in the country! It has nothing to offer for its high prices. one piece of frozen fish and a scoop of chips is not worth $10. A plain old hamburger $9.50 The food is not good here and is highly over priced. No wonder they can shut at 7pm.

Ordered two different types of fish as well as chips. Quality was ok but my god if there were not the smallest ever pieces of fish I've ever been served. Disappointed there was not more. Cost $16.50 for two of us. Filled up on chips instead of fish.

They also had hambugers, which my husband loved. Many if not all the food was battered and deep fried.
