“Food great, management not”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Local who has lived in the area for quite some time. Food was cooked well and the diner setting is relaxing. When I was there however I saw the owner coming down on her employee about a petty issue. I was quite shocked a staff meeting was occurring in the restaurant whilst I was eating. I have since been here twice and the same thing occurred. The manager obviously needs to take a holiday as I found her quite rude. I will eat elsewhere now.

“Best fish-n-chips around”
Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

Service is excellent,consistently good food and the salad bar is great. For a food chain takeaway the owners have added something that puts it in a class of it's own. It definitely is worth a visit.

“Quick Dining At Its Best”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

No, this is not a mistake - a 5-star Barnacle Bills! This unexpected delight is an absolute gem! My elderly parents stumbled on it and now my whole family and I are hooked on the fabulous seafood, always cooked to perfection, the best prawn cocktails you will get anywhere, a salad bar to please every taste and fabulous desserts (try the baklava). But wait! There's more . . . it's licensed! . . . so enjoy a wonderful dine-in experience served at super clean cubicles and tables or take-away and drive less than a couple of minutes to enjoy a carefully packed meal while you watch the sunset over Moana Beach. The staff are always friendly and helpful and take great pride in every aspect of their business. Highly recommended!
