Great food, Great staff! Love the ambiance. $130 for 2 adults 2 kids, we all over ate. The kids fish and chips were the best my kids have had, not greasy and good quality fish. As for the "fish wings" a must have! This is our second time visiting in the last 12 months, both visits were equally as good.

$35 for a scabby piece of fish on a paper plate with some chips. Gone was the damper & potato in alfoil. Salads had run out & requested 3 times for them to be replace. Cost $110 for 3 fish & chips. We are not after flash restaurants but something different & unique. We always recommend Finlays but not any... More

As explained to you previously, I appreciate your input but I see the portion sizes to be adequate as do the majority of my customers, Especially as only a year and a half ago portions were smaller and produce was imported frozen in a box as for the previous 5years, We took more interest in the business and started bringing...

My wife and two kids had a great time at this truly rustic unique place! After reading some of the previous reviews We were a bit apprehensive. . But we soon realised most were from the type of people who have ruined places like rotto.... expecting silver service everywhere they go. We both had the local snapper with prawns. It... More

Loved this place, a little rustic, went with friends and family on New Year's Eve for dinner. They had a 2 piece band playing, music was pretty good but loved the setting and the food. Best oysters I have had ever.

Worst meal Iv ever bought, fish was like a old boot, squid out of box, chips cold and under cooked. Sauce was basically melts butter and to jus top it of the table settings were uncomfortable, Finlay's should be shut down for bad food never mind the bad hygiene behind the counter. O and I almost forgot, my toddler could... More
