Very average food, uninterested ( to point of rudeness) owners. Try the place a couple of doors up- a bit more expensive , however better quality food , cooked in fresh oil , chunky chips

Our family says it is the best takeaway seafood place in Kiama. Very fresh, always people queuing for service at all times of the day. Great Blue Grenadier. Good sized servings and you can eat al fresco and watch the people go by, just over from the Park and Bay.

Undercooked grilled fish, swimming in water. Calamari dripping in old smelly oil. Returned food and rude woman behind counter asked us ''what would you like me to do about it??'' She spoke to us in a patronising tone '' i can give you half a refund'' . What a joke.

Friendly enough bunch, and looking for take out on Christmas night in Kiama is a big ask, but geez the assortment of chunks, seafood aspiring, thick batter and grease oozing, renders Jaws a miserable fail. The Diet Coke offset the grease I think...and it was cold so there is that.

The oil was very old and smelly and looked orange. Blue grenadier piece was good but calamari and scallops were a huge let down

Came here with my wife and wasn't impressed with the fish. very oily and greasy. We stopped by because we were hungry but left very disappointed.

No eftpos, service disgusting and would never eat here again. Food isn't fresh and is frozen and then deep fried.

Had 5 fish & chips, 5 scallops, 3 fish cakes, 3 bottles of water. Way over priced and quality just not there. Had to wait far too long.... and they were not busy. This cost $90. Wont be going back.

I had lunch at Jaws at Kiama, they make the best fish cocktails I have ever eaten, there are a couple of restaurants that serve fish and chip in that area but they are a bit up market, this shop was value for money and lots of tables to sit at.

The people here are very friendly and provide great service. The food is average as it is a bit greasy. It is in the main street of Kiama so can be a bit busy on weekends or holiday periods. If buying just stick to the chips. Look for the shark hanging from the ceiling.

Thank Mark C
