The food is excellent the tables outside however were not as clean as we would have liked. You pick your food from a refrigerated display and its cooked fresh. Beware though if you order chips you get a mountain of them!!

love this place, have never had anything I don't like. Beats all other seafood joints hands down, it's not cheap but I've paid a lot more for worse when it comes to seafood. Highly recommend

You walk in, and there under the glass counter are fillets of fresh fish. I liked the way you could easily assemble a takeaway, just the thing for taking down to the beach or back to one's motel. Can recommend this place highly.

Relaxed Aussie style dining, wear beach clothes if you are straight from the nearby bay. Choose your own fish from a good selection of marinated, fresh, local catch. They sell by weight, then cook it and bring it to your table. BYOB keeps the cost down. Super sea food experience.

I had fish of my choice grilled which I really enjoyed however my husband had the fish and chips which was overcooked and the potato scallops were deep fried to within an inch of their lives. The chips however were great. Salads were fresh and looked appetising. Happy to have eaten here once but not sure if I would try... More

A top lunch! Wooden tables and benches with fast and friendly service. I chose a fresh fillet which was grilled to my liking ( a little rare) and on my second visit I had the fish and chips.

We went with my 5 yo son and his friend who had fish and chips. I had the marinated barramundi. My wife had roast corn on cob and salad. All the food was okay to good. Nothing earth-shatteringly terrific but not bad by any means. Service quick, which was good (midweek daytime parking is all 30 min and we were... More

As my title suggests, this place is not cheap at all unless you ordered fish and chips. It is very expensive for grilled fish, and medium rare Tuna we ordered is far more than rare, very well cooked.
