Went to Fish Inn last night and had booking for 10. Food was mouthwatering and service was unbeatable. Our waitress, Paris, was very attentive and got all our drink and food orders correct. People from our table were arriving at different times and Paris was sure to return each time someone new was seated. Food arrived at same time and... More

Just finished having dinner there. A really nice restaurant with a great view. Our waitresses name was Jane. She was very friendly and always had a smile on her face even though it seemed a bit stressful in the kitchen. Food was great and service was just as good.

Went in there for dinner Sunday night, and the food was excellent! A lovely woman with long blonde hair I think her name was Paris? took care of us all night and ensured that everything was perfect.

I was at Fish Inn last night at around 7:30pm with some friends. Were were served by a young gentleman (blonde hair, maybe around the age of 15? I think his name was Edan). Edan had excellent customer service! He directed my friends where to go to order their takeaway and then instantly reappeared behind the counter to serve us.... More

We ended up going here 4 times; for breakfast, lunch and twice just for drinks. A nice place to stop after walking over from Rowes Bay caravan park. Lovely view of the rock pool an ocean. Service is a little slow so don't be in a hurry which we weren't. The food is good, the drinks are cold and service... More

My brother and I saw an advert (see below) for a burger at the Fish Inn that was far too enticing and decided to head down for lunch. You'll find that images of food usually outshine the actual taste of the meal itself....but not in this case! I honestly haven't had a tastier burger in Townsville. Absolutely delectable! The view...

Family and I visited this restaurant on Friday 27/1/17 for lunch the food was dreadful. When the waiter came over and collected our plates he asked if everything was ok and said no my flat head was so dry he didn't seem to even care. Then again on Sunday 28/1/17 another family member ordered take away chips while waiting cardboard... More

Mary Thanks for your feedback which has been passed on to my management. We have found that Flathead is not a suitable cut for grilling as it drys out very quickly....not sure if yours was grilled...so we are no longer offering this item grilled. Sunday is not the 28th but the 29th. I have spent 4 hrs at 2 times... More

I usually come here after work for lunch, and sometimes dinner. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The food is always a good size, even if it is a little bit much. The fish tacos, where do i begin? They were extremely tasty, with the right ratio of sauce to fish to avocado. The calamari is always cooked perfectly,... More

Wait times -too long to get a table. Often refused a table when I go here or it will take 20 mins to cook takeaway am told. Service - very poor, inexperienced staff, young staff with little direction. Food - poor Recently got takeaway there to eat on the Strand for a friends farewell. At the prices charged we would...

Amanada Thanks for your feedback. Sorry that you felt that you should have received a "little bit more food" for our pricing. Wait times and availability for tables fluctuates significantly during different demand periods. If you are often "refused a table" when you come here can I suggest that to ensure a table you do what most people do and... More
