Jetty Seafood Shack - ticks all the boxes....Great Food (who doesn't like fish & chips....? cooked in rice bran oil....and if you want a salad - no problem). Great Service - you cant beat the friendly, helpful fun staff and owner. Great Location -opposite the Jetty and Marina. Could not resist going there a couple of nights....forget cooking for yourself... More

An excellent selection of fresh seafood cooked as you order. Pricing was spot on and overall impression of the shop was good. The service may have been a little slow, but if you want your food cooked fresh, you need to wait for it.

Hi Peter, thank you for supporting our business by writing a review. Yes you may have to wait awhile (but you can always pre-order over the phone), because all of our food is prepared to order, to maintain the freshness. Hope to see you back in Kalbarri soon. Regards Martin More

Good quality seafood and chips although when busy it can take a while for your order to arrive, but it was worth it.

Will definitely return if in Kalbarri again.... More

I'm not sure why everyone is saying its overpriced? If you want fresh fish that doesn't come frozen out of a box from overseas then you're gonna have to pay a bit more. We also ordered a beef burger which I also believed to be good value, baby spinach instead of iceburg lettuce and beetroot included in the price. How... More

Thank you for your gratifying review. Pink Snapper is costing me $40 a kilo at the moment. This is fish that I have to skin, remove the pin bone and then portion. I know that one of my competitors is using pre-battered portions of Asian sourced fish which costs a fraction of the price. We even make our own batter!... More

Completely overpriced. Misleading advertising, BYO no wine glasses, no ice bucket, plastic forks, no knives. Basically an expensive take away fish joint.

The question is - why did you even order and stay when you were clearly expecting a restaurant or cafe? We are not, nor do we pretend to be either and never promote ourselves as a restaurant or cafe. The front of our menu clearly states 'take away menu'. The facilities of our shop are geared toward takeaway service. Take... More

We ordered by phone and were told it would be ready in five minutes and it was. How good is that? The staff were cheerful and helpful and the food was excellent. You like fish and chips?, you go there!

First thing I noticed was the long queue and was quite looking forward to eating its fish and chips and garlic prawn. However, you can simply tell from the photo that its garlic prawn has nothing special, the size of the prawns is fairly small and it is quite expensive. Fish and chips did not manage to impress me at... More

We visited twice during our stay in Kilbarri and the food was excellent. Cooked fresh and a large selection to choose from. Look for the harbour jetty and the Seafood Shack is at the end by the road.

Hi CourseMarshall, thank you for your rave review, we don't get many reviewers during the holidays, we fed over 2000 people during the October two week school holidays. Hard work for a little shop, with young but very enthusiastic staff. look forward to feeding you again. Regards Martin. More
