“Tasty & Fresh”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

The food was fresh & tasty and the portion of fries were big (or at least it was for us). It was a nice place to stop by for lunch and the outdoor sitting was great on a day that's not too windy & cold.

“Great Battered Fish, standard chips, Lorne prices”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

Firstly, I have to keep reminding myself that fish and chip in Lorne does not equal local/suburban chip shop. The fish was great (twice the thickness of the other place down the street!), the chips standard, and the prices typical of a holiday destination eg fried fish about $7, dim sims and potato cakes about $1.20 or so. The place itself is very clean, the staff well presented and polite. Cash only, no cards.I saw one guy eating a massive hamburger and he seemed pretty content. I would suggest that as a fish and chip ship it seemed like an average to good suburban shop, a much nicer set up with tables etc, with Lorne/holiday prices. For example, they have a family meal pack for about $56 - I remember thinking wow! We feed a family of 6 in Melbourne, and have never spent more than $35.Once you get over the fact that fish and chips down here does not equate to cheap, you'll be fine! Remind yourself these guys are probably paying mega-rent for these beachfront shops, and that the prices are commensurate.

“Best burgers I've had & gluten free burger buns”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

These burgers are awesome. I frequent Lorne a bit & never go without a visit to the salty dog. They've got gluten free buns too & they're really good for gluten free. Service is great, burgers are so tasty & food is generally excellent. Best fish & chips I've found.

“Perfect for a picnic!”
Reviewed September 10, 2011

Great service, fresh fish and colorful Greek salads. Soooo good and the absolute right ingredients to take - with some cold local beers or a bottle of wine - to a nearby picnic table for an oceanview picnic.
