Don't bother

The fisherman's basket comprised entirely of frozen packet crumbed and battered "seafood" cooked in old oil. So disappointed! Goodness knows who took the main photo for this place, you definitely can't get a seafood platter like that there! Maybe it's changed as it's now the union (or some such... read more

If you're looking for a take away diner this place offer nice pizzas, you will have to wait about ~25minutes but it worth it. Price for pizzas are correct for the quality but still $40 for 2 pizza without drinks.

Is this place may be called "Union Take Away"? We could not find name. My husband had Ocean Trout burger and I had Ocean Trout Fish & Chip. Trout was grilled and so fresh. Compared to other venue near by this place is the best value for money eating place. There are tables for people to eat inside at the... More

This venue supplied your food within 20-25 mins. Other venues you were waiting 40-50 mins for food. Excellent seafood.

We only had 10 prawns from Schwoch in Strahan, served with lemon and an accompanying sauce, but loved the honesty & simplicity of this place. They weren't local prawns but they were huge, tasty and good value. All the other seafood on the menu looked good, and loads of people were waiting for orders, both eat-in and takeaways. They specialise... More

Fish was tasty and enjoyable. Very casual restaurant. Quite a wait but worth it. Scallops were yummy.

We only wanted a small meal so ordered a pizza to share. It took longer than I expected for the order to be completed but the pizza was very good. It was large, extremely hot with a good thin base. There was a very generous topping. Although this is a take away, it is possible to sit at one of... More

I was originally going to try this restaurant out. However when I saw the menu all I saw was pizzas and fried food just like an ordinary fish and chip shop. So if you are after a basic fish and chips by all means this might be a good place to eat. However since I am mildly gluten intolerant I... More

Take away and small eatery. Fish and chips is very good. Also serve pizzas. Was very busy, but we managed to get a table.

They recently changed their name due to change in ownership but serve the same great food. Friendly staff. Your order will be taken quickly and they'll give you a number. Good will be cooked quickly but mostly fried though. Food is fresh and tasty. Recommended!
