We overheard a conversation about this being the best place for good old fish and chips so decided to check it out for ourselves. Made the mistake of going at lunchtime and had a 45 minute wait but we were told before our order was taken and it was well worth the wait to get freshly cooked fish and chips. A bit expensive but the servings are large and the outlook over the harbor made it all worth while.

At first glance, it seems quite expensive here, but the serves are so generous that you really only need one serve of fish and chips between two (depends on how hungry you are though!). The chips were fresh, crispy and delicious, and the fish was lovely. We usually purchase take away and sit on the grass overlooking the boat harbour with the kids, it's always a nice excursion. You can also sit inside at the rustic tables, with the fire going in there it would be nice and warm on a cold day. It is a bit dissapointing that they use styrofoam containers for the take away orders though, instead or paper. Not very good for the environment!

Give the salt and pepper squid a try and you would be hooked, definitely delicious. Servings are substantial, you can see the regulars sharing the platters.

Big fan of the good old aussie Fish'n'chips. Been around Oz many a time and ranked Victoria as the best. NSW have no idea - not even Doyles could compare. Then I go to the Squid Shack whilst in Albany. Never have I been a fan of Squid - BUT THIS WAS JUST MELT IN THE MOUTH DELICIOUS. Victoria I'm sorry - you have been pipped at the post. Definate must whilst in Albany. See you next long weekend.

Enjoyed snapper (4 piece) plus salt and pepper squid plus chips, for two @ $28. Wonderful. Served counter-style, with seating at picnic tables.
