If you're heading here, make it at 11am and take the tour. We had a wonderfully informative tour by Kelly today, where she detailed the journey from sea to plate. We enjoyed really tasty fish and chips for lunch.

I love this place and visit it several times every time I come to Lincoln. You can purchase seafood to cook at home or have them prepare it for you. It’s a must for any seafood lover.

Having heard that Port Lincoln was 'the place' for sea food, we opted to try it here and we weren't disappointed. Fish was well prepared and cooked and just melted in your mouth. Chips were well drained and not greasy. Staff were welcoming and happy.
