Scrumptious food!

We stopped by on a busy Thursday and the line was pretty much at the door. I thought it would be a long wait but I was served in approx 7 min and then food cooked fresh and ready in another 10. We had calamari, seafood sticks, fish bites and chips and it was all tasty and delicious. Serving size... read more

Took some visitors to partake in the excellent experience of choosing your own fish & have it either grilled or fried to your liking. As usual we had the most outstanding meal which we ate outside. We all enjoyed our lunch.A must if you are in the area

This is the best Fish and Chips I have ever eaten!! You pick your fresh fish and it is cooked for you on site. I love this place and will come back again

Really disappointing experience. Staff were rude and unfriendly, very abrupt when placing order. Prices were reasonable, but tables for eating were grubby - covered in bird droppings.

We just happened to stumble on this little place while staying in SeaWorld Resort. The kids (and adults!) loved looking at all of the items for sale, heaps of different fish and other types of seafood. I'm not sure if it was expensive or not - not a huge seafood eater, but very cool to look at. The takeaway wasn't... More

I was recommended to eat here by the local girls at Seaworld, so when in Rome, plus locals never steer you wrong in Oz. So I took my 3 kids and off we went, easy to find and just a stones throw from Seaworld Resort where we stayed. We had delicious mouthwatering oysters mornay, perfect, the freshest most tender,juicy pieces... More

Spur of the moment decision to head to Pete's Seafood for a Friday lunch with family and it turned out to be a great choice! The option of being able to pick yourself fresh fish with choices ranging from bream to Barra to snapper and everything in between was brilliant. And you could tell it was fresh! We didn't think...

The seafood was all sitting in open bays where you can choose which item you want. You can take it raw ... or you can have it cooked on site ... a cool concept and a bit of fun but at 42 dollars a kilo for cooked gar fish its very expensive fish and chips. Also for something saying fresh... More
