Always quality food.

All their fish dishes are top but I like that they are happy to grill fresh fish and also have fresh fish for sale. The portions are a bit large, particularly the chips, but the salads are fresh and tasty. The chowder is very tasty too. The share platter is enough for three or more and you would... read more

Situated on a side road to the busy Bass Highway, Fish on the Edge is an excellent fish and chippery. The menu offers quite a range of seafood and manners of preparation. We both ordered Trevalla, the wonderful Tasmanian fish also known as Blue - Eye. It came as two thick portions of fish, beautifully moist and served with crisp... More

Have visited Fish on the Edge a number of times for small family functions (birthdays, farewells, anniversaries) and have been impressed each time. Service is good, relaxed environment and great fish. If dining as a couple the platter for two is highly recommended. Great value for money and a great range of products that easily feeds two adults.

This is a great place for a seafood meal. I enjoyed the prawn thai salad though I could have done with more dressing. My wife enjoyed the crumbed flake. The flake was thick cut and moist.

We took the opportunity to call into Fish on the Edge, never have we been disappointed. They have a secret talent of delivering the best fish and chips plus extras eg sushi, rice paper rolls and fish cakes. Don't ever change a thing with your fish and chips, you are the best! Thanks for the memory, we will return again... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch. The salmon salad was good as well as the fish burger. The fish was light and flaky.

Seafood laksa for lunch today. Fantastic. As good as any I have had outside of Thailand/Malasia and better than a few I have had there as well. Take away sushi for the evening also very good. A well run business.
