We are not quite sure what all the fuss, and rave reviews were about. The fish & Chips were acceptable, but only just above average and somewhat over priced, but then that seems to be the case for all seafood in Forster/Tuncurry.

Had yummy fish and chips for lunch. Chips crunchy and lots of them and fish we had crumbed and melted in your mouth. Nicest fish we've had in ages. Both girl waitress' friendly. There were old and young people in the shop. Good sign.

Well after reading all the great comments on here had to try it out. Had Fish and Chips and wasn't very impressed and over the moon like some of the comments on here. But I guess u have to try for yourself these days as everyone is different :)

This was the most delicious seafood meal that our family has had in a long time! The chips were crispy and golden, the fish was soft and melted in your mouth. Was absolutely amazing. The taste was incredible. Also great, friendly service. Highly recommend!

Visit Beach Street Seafood regularly, the grilled fish is just the best. The crumbed fish is also a favourite with my teenage boys. Servings are a good size and the food is always fresh. BYO is a great option for a nice relaxed meal after a day at the beach

The prawn cutlets batter was large and oily. Very large size crumbed fish which the cooked crumbs looked well over-cooked. Overall very disappointed again - will try... More

I seem to have found the local fish & chips shop. From all the TripAdvisor reviews the Best in Forster. I was disappointed and found the fish & chips average and the menu over all, expensive. I was confused that No.7 on TripAdvisor's best restaurants list is also Beach St Seafoods. Are there 2 restaurants or are there just 2... More
