Apparently voted best Fish and Chips in NSW for several years. The fish and chips were good, but I wouldn't say the best that I've ever had. Still worth the visit!

Lobster Mornay was frozen than put on the grill which may explain why center was cold and Mornay tasted floury underneath the grilled layer of Mornay. Chips were undercooked however they manage to cook something! The dory filet was cooked...flip around and one side was burnt. Overall quality was just so bad. They totally the town of Nelson bay down!!

VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

Im a local in the area and went to Bubs to get some takeaway for myself and 2 out of town friends.
We were there during the easter break so I knew that there would be a crowd and a long wait for service. Ordered grilled Snapper and chips which cost $17.90 for 1 serve. Waited 30 mins and got our takeaway.
Tiny serving of fish, about 10 chips (seriously!) and an egg cup full of salad. The fish was rubbery and dry and the chips were cold. You have got to be kidding Bubs!!! Why would anyone support you?? Why would locals support your business during the long cold winters when you serve up rubbish like this!!!

Lunch: A real effort to get served, rude lazy female counter attendant, both serves were cold and took around 30 minutes to arrive despite hardly any customers. They didn't have some of the advertised fish despite there being two fishmongers nearby, what was displayed looked old/stale, and was grossly overpriced. The room and tables were unwiped and floor was dirty with spilt food. The kicker was there was no cutlery to eat with and when I asked for some I was given a plastic fork, but no knife. Attendant said "our boss doesn't supply us with plastic knives" - lucky us!!! Might account for the cold meal as I assume we have to eat with our fingers. 1/10 with the one being for the setting!!! If this is the best NSW regional can offer I'd suggest to only buy FnChips in the cities!!! A change in attitude & a random visit from the health authorities maybe??
