You can freely pick the seafoods you like and ask them cook for you. is either grilled or fried. We enjoy the freshness of the seafood. It is good to hang out there. The feeling different than dining at the restaurant or cafe.

We bought fish and chips to feed our extended family. The place was busy but they had plenty of staff to keep the queues moving. The fish was very fresh. They also had fried sausages for people who don't like seafood! We have been here on nearly all of our trips to the Gold Coast and we are never disappointed.

We had the best fish & chips for lunch on the Gold coast. The fish, scallops and prawns were fresh and cooked to perfection. The site has modest and clean tables & chairs including two dinghies cleverly converted into tables that allow patrons who couldn't wait to have their fingers on the hot chips to eat on site. We couldn't... More

Peters fish is an amazing fish market that has the best variety of local and imported fish and seafood. Chose your favorite fish grilled/battered or take and make at home. We have been there multiple times during our stay and enjoyed every meal! Highly recommended!!!

We went here following a recommendation. It had great fried fresh fish and chips. The kids loved it. It is a hole in the wall type of place but we were happy to get some good food!

Evrerytime we're up from Sydney we always look forward to fish and chips from Peters. Quality of Fish and seafood is great. It is fried but I've not found it to oily, batter was light, fish moist and flakey. Place is really casual, after you place your order its self service. The birds are annoying and look dirty, but they're... More

Peters fish and chips has been there for as long as I can remember. Fresh fresh straight from the fishing trawlers each day. Select a fish and have it cooked. The fish packs are good value. Crumbed seafood instead of battered. The waiting line can sometimes be from outside but the guys are very fast cooking. It hasn't ever been... More

If you like everything deep fried this is your spot. When you walk up to the store the door is covered with all the photos of people the caught stealing and a security guard outside. Really made the experience awkward.

Prawns were awesome. Calamari wasn't good. Fish was ok. Chips were great. I paid $5 for tomato sauce and tartare sauce. Crazy. The service was slow and the guy who took my money was super rude. I am disappointed.

Disappointing after so many good reviews ...... Prawns and fish undercooked and chips not crunchy after specifically asking for extra crunchy chips.
