We had high hopes for a place boasting of being a 7 time winner of the best fish and chips in NSW but we were sorely let down.
Salt and pepper squid served lukewarm and bereft of salt and pepper, fish so oily that it could've come straight from the Exxon Valdez, prices more skin to fine dining than mere fish 'n' chips and surly staff. Asking for an extra plate was apparently the height of rudeness if the owner's reaction was anything to go by.

Repeat customers we will not be.

Everyone raved about this place, considering it was on the ocean, why was the fish off and why did it cost $40 for a couple of pieces of fish and some chips?????

I was at Bub's last weekend and had a very enjoyable experience. We fed the fam (2 kids and 2 adults) for around $50 bucks and EVERYONE was happy....we had the big seafood platter and there was more than enough food, it was really good value!
The fish was really fresh and everything was delicious. Sitting right on the waters edge is just a bonus! Great value and great food.

Bubs claim they are the best FaC in all of NSW. How very wrong! Once we got there the place was a dump! The tables and floor were covered in food, the bins were over flowing and had a very horrible smell! The woman serving us was rude and the food was not at all reasonably priced. It arrived dry, stale, tasteless and just plain bad. Would not visit or recommend!
