Had lunch here with a friend and the food was fresh and you have a choice of grilled, crumbed or battered when it comes to the fish. The calamari and scallops were also good but watch the wind in case a smoker turns up.

We keep coming back to buy our seafood here each time we visit Airlie Beach. Mostly choose to buy our seafood here for lunch and take it down by the water. Lovely relaxing experience with tasty food.

Nice fresh seafood, bit expensive for regular fish & chips but it is Airlie Beach. Try and avoid ordering too many meals with chips otherwise your eating more chips than fish. About $12 for fish and chips, I thought it was a tad expensive given the abundance of seafood at their doorstep.

Kids wanted fish and chips. Mum and Dad wanted something more than flake... After a few other restaurant menu review hits and misses we decided to let the kids win as it was getting late, and we went for fish and chips at what appears to be the only fish and chip shop in town. What we found was an... More

The Calimari is obviously pre formed and not caught fresh. It was the chiko roll of calamari! Who knows what it actually is! It tasted bland and the chips were greasy and tasteless. Hugely disappointing seeing as you are fish n chip shop near actual sealife! You are this close to the ocean and you buy pre formed calamari? Are... More

Love the meal! The prawns and barramundi are so fresh. We swapped the chips to the salad and I love the salad! By staying in Airlie beach for 3 days, we went back there twice! :D

We had the calamari and the red emperor with chips. The calamari was incredibly tender. The fish was hardy and didn't have the gross "fishy" taste. It was fresh. For two people it was $35. Believe it or not, that's the cheapest in the area. Every other place has options that start at $30 per person. Food was made in... More

This place is a fantastic seafood take-away. Beautiful, fresh seafood and salads. Right across from some very convenient, sheltered picnic tables on the beach. Only a very short wait on food, even with a lot of people ordering. We were very impressed with the friendly service and thought it should be recommended!!
