At the end of the day they are a fish and chip shop. That being said the seafood is amazing, excellent selection and cooked to perfection. Seeing as the art of chopping a potato and cooking it seems to be lost to humanity I will look past the frozen chips.
Happily go there again.

We stopped here for lunch while in Mackay. Was quite busy with local workers but food came out very quickly which is always good with two young ones in tow. Fish was not the greatest I've had but tasty enough. Chips were nice and not greasy. Nice outlook over harbour.
Pros: location and speedy service.
Cons: fish wasn't as good as expected.
Would maybe eat there again.

We have eaten here many times over the years and know what to expect. Windy, noisy from the nearby bar and band, dirty tables but great tasting fish and chips. We usually get the fishermans basket, grilled fish and a greek salad. You can get an alcoholic drink from the bar next door and bring it to your table.

Fish and chips galore located right next to the iconic lighthouse at Mackay Harbour. Queues to order can be long, it's noisy, and there is no interesting decor to enjoy, but it's a fish and chip shop, and the food is great!

As a person who lives on the marina the light house is pretty awesome for quick, easy and great food. Service is always down to earth and efficient and their fish and chips are always tasty and not too oily.

And the burgers are fantastic! For 5.90 you get everything! Steak or home made mince patty with bacon, egg, onion, beetroot, tomato, cheese, carrot and lettuce - they're bloody huge! Excellent value for money thats for sure!

I'll definitely keep going back, have not had an unpleasant experience yet.
