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.

My Gorgeous Wife and I had friends to meet from Newcastle so we chose Woy Woy as our half-way point, caught the train up from Sydney, then made the 5 minute walk to Woy Woy Fisherman's Wharf for lunch.
Our friends informed us that there had been major renovations done here recently .. the insides have been extensively modernised and a extension to the dining area now sits over the inlet and created a lovely ambience on this winters afternoon.

We all ordered a variety of dishes from barramundi, calamari and chowder. All meals were generous in quantity and beautifully cooked. The difference between good chips and bad chips often comes down to the freshness and quality of the oil and these were just excellent ... always a good test as to the quality of the kitchen.
I always rate a good chowder by how easy your spoon stands upright in it unassisted and have to report there was never going to be any issue here ... it was jammed packed !!! ... best for a long time.

Care had been taken with the wine-list and we found a rather good dry French Rose, again generously poured that just went down perfectly with everything.

Go here for :
- lovely ambience and setting ... outdoor seating over the water is available
- beautifully cooked seafood with generous servings
- attentive, knowledgeable and professional staff
- on the northern train line, 1 1/2 hour trip from central, a short walk from the station
- a getaway from the hussle and clatter of the Sydney cafe scene

A real pleasure to find this place. Next time wont be too far away.
Keep up the good work.

Great fish shop, good quality fish and chips, lovely location on a sunny winter day. With a little more effort in setting up the takeaway section the experience would excellent rather than just OK as it is now.

Great new renovation and a lovely location and outlook. We ordered two glasses of sparkling wine and ordered a seafood platter, which we had enjoyed in the past.

The wine came and it was flat, the waitress replaced them graciously, and we sipped and enjoyed that. We then ordered a bottle of pino gris. Which never came. We changed the oder to a glass.
In the meantime we finished the small seafood platter, which consisted of over spiced and over salted calamari, tasteless battered fish which was watery and clearly frozen. The battered prawns were sadly also tasteless and there was a small grab which we struggled with till the novelty wore off. Praens very salty but OK and the oysters and chips were great. We got up to leave and the waitress was just pouring the glasses of wine. She apologised however the bill being over $100 was an absolute waste of money. Can get it so right but they take for granted that there are plenty more customers out there.

My wife and I visited this restaurant for my birthday after calling three times to book and going to message bank. We decided to go anyway only to be told you should have made a booking didn’t you read our sign that says our phones have been out all week, yes but we just arrived was met with a sigh and we were shown to the last available table and sat down. The same waitress came back with the menus threw them on the table and told us in no uncertain terms that they were short staffed and because didn’t book it be a long wait and then stormed off. Well I’ve been to a lot of restaurants in my time but have never experienced such rudeness from anyone, we simply got up and left never to return

Went for drive anticipating some ordinary weather as forecast. Pulled into Woy Woy as the sun shone brightly and provided a warm afternoon for a casual easy walk along the waterway. Relaxed and soaking the sun opted for a lazy unplanned lunch of local fresh fish, fresh accompanying salad. Adequate range of beers and wines to make the occasion and reasonably priced and nice friendly service. Outside dining or takeaway. Able to have the dogs too which a winner.
