“Love this place”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

This place is a great concept, standard fish and chip shop with the option of just about any edible fish possible all filleted for you to choose.

Counters will have cut fillets of dozens of different fish, or you can buy whole snapper/trout etc, or lobster and several different types of crab, large prawns and a whole lot more - all you do is put it in a bag and they'll cook it for you any way you want.

Peak times come with a lengthy wait (40 mins) and whilst the fish is of good quality it won't be the quantity you'd expect from a UK chippy, but this place is more about the experience of choosing your own fillet and have it cooked fresh for you.

Try it, you'll enjoy.

ps - parking is extremely limited

“Not that great”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

I can't believe people are saying that the "Fish of the Day" packs are beautiful fresh fish. The crumbed option is Asian basa & even worse the battered option is pre -battered hake.... truly awful. The outdoor eating area is grotty & sub standard. (reminds me of some roadside eateries where the fish is from).

The fresh seafood looks reasonable, just a little pricey.

“Fun place to eat.”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

This was our first time to Peter's. After we asked a fellow holding a plastic bag of fish, we got quickly into the procedure. The food (salmon) for us did not take long. We sat outside at a picnic table and enjoyed the delicious food and the ambience with the seagulls.

“Great seafood and worth the long wait”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

A must-do when you're at Southport. We often try to make it there for lunch when in the area. Fresh seafood and plenty of options, but it's always very busy so be prepared to wait for some time. It's well priced as well compared to other fish and chips shops in the area.
