“Seafood excellence”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Probably the best fish and chips I've ever had, and I have it every place I visit! Just a Mom & Pop family restaurant. Meals are eaten at the curb side tables, or taken home. The fish almost melts in your mouth! They have prawns, Morton Bay Bugs (a variety of lobster), clams, haddock, sea trout, etc., etc., etc.!!!

“Fresh, locally-sourced fish and seafood”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

There are at least 2 reasons to stop into Captain Hook's and one prerequisite: you need to be hungry. Great concise selection of fish and seafood. The takeaway thai fishcakes are fresh and spicy. 2 reasons to stop in regardless : #1) the squid is likely to be a serious contender for the best I've had, simply so tender, light and delicious. #2) The fish burger is tremendous; soft fresh bread, crunchy lettuce, beetroot, spices and the fish...They can make it with anything you see, I like it so much that I stop in every single time I drive down to the coast. The chips are vastly superior to the run of the mill chip shop and largely everything that goes on your plate is homemade (aioli and sauces included), rather scarce these days. To me, the pleasure-to-cost benefit ratio make it a steal because the meal is so deeply satisfying for prime quality fish. This humble fish and chip shop is cooking something rather special.

What a great selection of fish and other products. Had Tasmanian Salmon with a delicious salad, Thai fishcakes that were excellent. Portions are also generous.
