Excellent fish & chips. Cooked to order and well worth the short wait Fresh barramundi & chips were on special and cooked to perfection. Excellent value for money when many of the restaurants seemed to cater for the high end of town

Generous served. The calamari was scrumptious! The staff were lovely and warm. Good for a quick bite while exploring the rest of Airlie. Prices were reasonable too.

We were visiting the beach markets and decided on fish and chips. 2 of our group had grilled Red Emperor (a juicy reef fish) and I had regular deep fried Red Emperor and we were all delighted by its juiciness. The chips were also crisp and tasty. Nothing better than ordering to take away and eat under the shelter shed... More

For someone who isn't a Fish and Chip fan, this place is amazing! What looks like a simple, everyday standard fish and chip shop - it's sure to surprise you! A group of 7 got to enjoy the awesomeness of their food! Almost, 'gourmet' style - you will not be disappointed. We unfortunately missed out on their flake however, happily... More

This is my favorite local place to grab fish and chips and sit at the foreshore in Airlie with the family, We eat here a least once per month. The prices are reasonable, the fish is always fresh with a decent selection, plenty of options for the kids and special deals. The generous portions of chips and fish is what... More

I eat at the Whitsunday Seafood Bar on a regular basis. The fish is great and the chips are the same.

Don't let the small shopfront put you off. The freshly cooked fish, chips, prawns and fresh made sale we had here was first class. What a great place to go to grab a well priced lunch or dinner

Great food and very reasonable too. Both myself and my partner are from the UK where fish and chips is somewhat a religion and this has to be some of the best we have ever had. I particularly recommend the Calamari.

Fab fish with great range of different fish to have a styles to cook. Good priced kids food which was delicious. Extra bucks for sauces and vinegar which was slightly disappointing. Reasonable price overall for good quality food.

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!!
