Liked that you could pick your own piece of fish.. but, the chips left a lot to be desired - seagulls got most of them. Fish didn't taste like I was anticipating.

But how good would it be if they spent say $100 on repainting the tables outside? Different coloured tables, some umbrellas over them? It's like a 'tired GC icon'. Has every pointer to an owner who has made heaps but just maybe could now no longer care less. Freshen it up champ, look around there's options everywhere!

I strongly recommend this place for a visit, especially with kids. Cheap place and good quality, you can eat outside and everything it is fresh. It is located on your way to Seaworld, and as far i remember, it is only open during midday. very good

Had heard lots about this, so visited. The seafood range is expansive and the service is friendly, (especially when you don't know how it works). Good options for how you want your fish cooked. However, if anyone in your group doesn't want seafood there aren't many other options. Service was quick and fish was delicious.

I go to peters fish market every week and have found that the little man with tattoos looks quite intimidating but not at all he is the best most politesse person i have met so far not to mention he is by far the best cook on the gold coast 5 stars for the inked up guy 😜

If driving from Brisbane to Gold Coast, this is another good place for fish and chips that my family always come. Sometimes a bit average but most was good. Very popular!

We always make sure we stop in here to get our fresh seafood, every time we visit the Gold Coast. We love being able to select exactly what seafood we want. This time we grabbed some fresh prawns, mussels, seafood mix and lobster to enjoy on our hotel verandah at a later time. Everything was top notch, and we were... More
