It was cold outside but the family really enjoyed their feed. It was cosy with a lovely slow burner wood stove that we sat by If you go to Albany and enjoy fish and chips DO NOT MISS visiting this venue

I was disappointed with the Squid Shack. Over cooked food, a bit expensive for what we got. Was busy on the day we wanted to get Fish & Chips so we went back the next day. Ordinary sit down area, could do with a revamp.

Do order the fishcakes, really nice and the red snapper fish and chips are steaky and chewy. Nice twist. I had the shark fish and chips which were quite tender. Not to be missed the P&S squid and chips....

Fish was lovely and fresh and generous serving. Clean and tidy shop. Staff very friendly indeed. Fire going on a cold night, was fantastic.

We were told about the Squid Shack and were not disappointed.Nice juicy shark, crunchy chips just what was needed after a big day out.

Service was fast but I was not hugely impressed with the fish and chips or squid. It was Easter. Maybe they were just really busy.

We visit Albany on a yearly basis and every visit includes at least one visit to the Squid Shack. Best salt & pepper squid I've ever tasted!!

The squid shack is the fish and chip shop to go to while saying in Albany! Some of the best food we have ever eaten! Will be back!

Good service at Squid Shack and busy around dinner time. The fisherman's basket was a hit and miss: some of the seafood was lovely, fresh and nicely cooked, but some, including the chips, were not. I did like the option of half serves!

Firstly let me start by saying read all my reviews and see this is the first bad one I have ever put. This place hands down is the worse fish, chips and salt and pepper squid I have ever had to eat. We went through...More
