Description: A merry old seafood joint in the best little town on Earth called Woy Woy, sitting on a jetty on Brisbane Water on the beautiful NSW Central Coast. A seafood market, take away fish & chip shop and a killer laid back restaurant. Come for a very very very casual dining experience surrounded by pelicans, boats & mangroves. Bring a smile, leave your pretensions at the door and enjoy some of freshest and most delicious seafood you'll ever eat! We're not fine dining, we're bloody good fish & chips on the water with beautiful wines to match. We look forward to seeing you at the Wharf.

Amazing day to have lunch at famous Award-winning Woy Woy Fishermen’s Wharf on Central Coast, run by three generations of the Cregan-Clayton family.
Could not wait to enjoy for promising lunch with high expectations to eat the best seafood on CC with long history.

Simply prepared seafood and the best fish & “CHIPS” on the Central Coast as quoted on web site

Food was very under average we ordered seafood platter for a two I think price was $85. Food came out suspiciously very fast. Calamari, simple fish pieces? and prawns were unfortunately all soggy only chips were simply prepared and crispy.
Oysters were dry and only yummy were fresh prawns and crab.
Sauces what came with platter were tartar sauce and cocktail sauce (luck of any ingredient and flavour used in sauce) and mystery sweet chilli sauce.

I really wanted to come after renovation was done, great location with reputation best seafood in Woy Woy. Execution and the skills used by kitchen staff of food is zero the best is only the fresh seafood.

My expectations of Fishermen wharf was to get amazing BEST SEAFOOD in Woy Woy and served seafood that would remember this day and I would be happy and die for to come back any time and wait for it no matter how long it takes but just to get well executed well presented and cooked crispy seafood the best on Central Coast.

Waterfront location is stunning but what about (sea)food ?

Simply sensational food that impressed on every level. Exquisite flavours, fantastic service and brilliant wine/ beer list. Sitting out over the water, with views from every angle and the sunlight playing on the ripples is a treat to savour , best you get yourself there soon to enjoy firsthand this stylish establishment.

After renovation and re-opened early this year, the interior of Woy Woy Fishermen's Wharf is more presentable and charming. Sit there just like peacefully sit in a river as it is surrounded by the Brisbane Water opposite the Pelican Island. Many guests ordered the mixed seafood plate which plate is as large as half of a table.
We would watch the Pelican Feeding at 3:00pm outside the restaurant using the restaurant remains.
Then we would like to take a round trip on board MV Saratoga at 3:30pm for half an hour cruising on the peaceful Brisbane Water.
After this peaceful day out at Woy Woy Tip, I am considering to move to Woy Woy.

Great ambience and feel, the moment you walk in. A lovely, varied menu featuring some fabulous seafood. Serves are large, as are the smiles on the wait staff.
We will definitely be back, again, and again.

If you remember the charm of the old pier you might might get a bit nostalgic when you see what they’ve done. But you’ll agree it deserved an update and the venue now lives up to the food. It is fabulous. And the Pelicans still queue up at 3:00 PM on the dot for the fish frames from the kitchen.

As we usually do, my wife and I travelled up by train from Sydney to Woy Woy station which is only a five minute walk from the restaurant. A very picturesque ride through leafy suburbs, heavily treed rugged Australian bush land following the shores of the waterways around the mouth of the Hawkesbury river.

The food, however, is the star. If you love seafood this is a must - there is nothing else on the menu. We shared plates. Sydney rock oysters and bbq sardines to start and grilled scampi and fish tacos for a main. Every dish was the best we’ve had anywhere. OK there’s no prep for natural oysters but if you’ve ever been to the fish markets you’ll know there are several grades with corresponding prices. These guys obviously go for the top shelf. Plump and delicious.

I cook a lot and have done all the others at home. I will never get to this standard and would be disappointed if I did. That’s why I’ll keep coming back here.

Oh, very reasonably priced, good service and great views too.
