Popped in for lunch. Excellent!! Fresh beautiful seafood. Our party ordered a variety of foods, squid rings, were fantastic, as was the grilled fish and prawns. Any fresher and they'd be moving. Thank you to the staff. Great lunch spot.

The batter is light and the fish, fresh; that's what we expect and that's what we got. Situated on the waterfront at Emu Point the ambiance and fresh air are a delightful way to enjoy fish and chips at the Squid Shack.

Having been recommended to head out to The Squid Shack I thought there would be no need to check reviews on Trip Advisor -wrong!! Maybe we are spoilt living on Queensland's Sunshine Coast where fresh seafood abounds. But we were puzzled to see only 2 fish choices, & then to be told no grilling as it shrinks the fish too...

Have been to this restaurant several times over the years and it never disappoints. Food averages about $15 a head. We had Red Emperor and Chips and the portion was very generous. There are plenty of sides and sauces available to purchase and they have condiments on every table as you can dine in or takeaway. Not many dine-in tables... More

Was looking forward to trying the food from the Squid Shack, but in all the years we have been coming here, had yet to try it, so tonight we finally decided to give it a go. Was a bit concerned at some of the negative reviews on Trip Advisor but there were sufficient excellent reviews to convince us to try... More
