Perfect stop for some 'fish and chips'... swapped my Chips for a side salad , refreshing combo! Great vibe and perfect service! Team work at its best to make sure you receive food fast from the kitchen. A definite 5 star experience!!

Overlooking Central Beach and the Beacon Isle, the upper deck is a good place to sit and enjoy the scenery over a few frosties. My wife and I both had fish and chips, which were good.

We went to Moby Dicks to have a nice seafood lunch as this seems to be their speciality. The waiter recommended the battered deep fried fish and chips. When it arrived we were quite disappointed as it looked like a crumbed grilled piece of fish....More
