Good lunch

It was a great meal of fish and chips and the staff were very friendly. It took us back to our childhood of having these in the car surrounded by seagulls with the pelicans flying in too!

After seeing great reviews, we decided to try it out on a trip to the Tea Gardens. We ordered 2 pieces of grilled barramundi and some chips, costing us $20. Although it was nice, I thought the price was a bit steep for the small portion we received. The staff weren't overly friendly either!

We have purchased fish and chips at this place for the last (7) years whilst on holiday 4-5 times a year. We have now retired to Tea Gardens and are building our new home. This place is often so popular that you have to queue outside the shop to wait for your food to be cooked, doesn't take long though.... More

Located on the waterfront street at Tea Gardens, not far from the Ferry Wharf. Good range of very tasty fish and chips, hamburgers etc. Grab some fish and chips and walk across the road and sit on the waterfront...very nice.

Average fish and chips for a far from average price. They charge more than many sit down restaurants for plain old fish and chips . You pay more if you want your fish grilled. Also their offerings tend to be on the greasy side.

I visited with my partner on the long weekend, there was a crowd of customers milling out the front and even more inside waiting for their order, around 30 ppl. We didn't expect fast service due to the number of people. Considering this also I questioned how they could consistently serve a well cooked meal. We were "delighted" we had... More
