Excellent Since Renovations!!!

To be honest before this place was renovated I avoided it at all costs! My husband ensured me it had improved since my last visit so I very hesitantly gave it another go.. The alcoholic drinks are overpriced. $7.50 for a beer and $10.50 for premix can of spirit *ouch*. However the non alcoholic... read more

I would say the best thing about this cafe is the view over the Rockpool. If it wasn't for that I don't think i would return. We have been twice now for business. The first time all the tables were filthy and the food was terrible. The second time even though the place was empty mid week the tables were... More

I have purchased food from Fish Inn twice in the last couple of months. The first time i only had some of their chips but my family tried a fish burger and crumbed fish. They were happy with the freshness and quality. The most recent was a couple of weeks ago for breakfast during the week. All breakfasts for $9.90... More

Deciding to celebrate a family member's birthday with Fish & Chips on the beach, our very large extended family ordered with the Fish Inn Rockpool for their food. Not one single complaint! Very large serves of delicious food ranging from fish, calamari (cooked several ways) to the most sumptuous two handed Steak Burger (HUGE). The latter was carefully prepared as... More

It's hard to find real value for money when you have 3 kids and just need a night off from cooking. My go-to relaxing meal with my family is the family pack at the Fish Inn. It feeds us all with perfect fish every time, with their stunning batter that you just do not find anywhere else. I often spoil... More

We travelled down from Ingham for the day and decided it would be nice to have dinner on the Strand. The service was fast and friendly, with the staff doing everything they could to make sure we were happy. The food was amazing and it was a lovely relaxing meal. Will definitely be back.

Visited 6 months ago, great venue overlooking the Rock pools-but, the chef/cooks clothing was dirty, tea towels hanging off their shoulders used to wipe hands, sweaty face then the plates! Heavy metal jewellery in ears, disgusting. 2nd time: it appeared things had changed for the better new staff etc. 3rd time last week, the chef/cook remains in dirty attire, tea... More
