Had a seafood basket with whiting fish top up, it's pretty good and freshly made. The whiting fish is fresh and good, the batter was nice and crispy. Good food.

Fresh sea food ( you can see fresh fish being filleted in the back) and great professional service in a clean and comfortable environment. I was so happy to find this business. You can either eat in or take away. I had a lovely, fresh seafood meal with chips and a great salad for under $20. Other Kangaroo Islander businesses... More

You will probably never have better fish and chips. I was recommended this place and when I first saw the place I was a little reluctant. It's adjacent to the gas station and while clean, isn't fancy. The ladies working the counter were super friendly and kind. We had the whiting and snapper with panko. The snapper was fabulous. There... More

After visiting the Pelican Feeding we popped in here to have dinner, the staff were extremely friendly and the food was delicious. During our 9 day holiday on Kangaroo Island I mostly cooked dinner and packed lunches four our outings so it was a real treat for our family to buy dinner and we weren't disappointed. Thank you

Tried the battered & grilled whiting. Found it was quite average. The fillet were really fresh nevertheless. Staff were friendly. It's located adjacent to a petrol station and car parks are aplenty right beside the petrol station. Good for some takeaways.

View some of the fresh fish in the displays, take it home to cook, if you like, or better yet, enjoy it there. The whitefish and chip were great. My wife had the fried shrimp, which were also very tasty. I'd suggest sharing some chips, because they served more than we could eat with each meal, and you can save... More

Delicious fish and chips. This is a basic take away next to the servo. Nothing flash but the staff are friendly and helpful. They explained the fish on offer and suggested cooking methods. The fish and chips we bought for lunch to eat there were so tasty and fresh. Thoroughly recommend 😊
