“Great atmosphere among the prawn trawlers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

This is a terrific place to pick up prawns, fish etc. fresh from the fleet. It's right on the Broadwater near Marina Mirage and Southport Yacht Club - but much cheaper!

“Best fish and chips around - a must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Super fresh fish and seafood. You pick it, they cook it. Plenty of picnic tables to eat at. Friendly and efficient service. Kids and adults love it. A nice antidote to over-priced Gold Coast dining options. Go for a stroll at the Marina afterwards....and maybe dessert at Max Brenner around the corner!

“Hi hum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

The idea of selecting your own fish is novel, but the charges for cooking it are exhaubitant!

You would think that since they cook fish all day long, they would get it right, but ours were overcooked, bordering on burnt...Same with the few chips they provided at a cost.

This places is overrated, and the fish is very expensive; it cost me $25 for 2 fillets plus 3 dollars worth of chips!

My local fish and chips shop in brisbane is much better!

“The original style Local Fish and Chip Shop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Peter's Fish Market has a great variety of fish, prawns, crabs whatever you wish at reasonable prices. I love the oysters. It is a great place for fresh sea food. If having your meal cooked it can take a little while over the lunch period. I love the choice of tables and boat to sit and eat your meal if you choose. I think it is great value and good fresh seafood. The locals love it so I think that speaks volumes.
