Ordered fish and chips. We sat inside and then went to get our food and a beer or two and got told to sit outside because we ordered fish and chips. It's a fish and chips shop right?

I would have to disagree with people who claimed that the food there was expensive. On the contrary, it was cheap, in my opinion. Besides being cheap, the food also tasted quite good, and the portions were not small. I'm not sure about the best...More

We've been here before - many times and each time, we receive the same great service and the same delicious meal. And we'll be back the next time we visit this seaside town.

My daughter and I (both Coeliacs requiring gluten free) had restaurant quality grilled barramundi with the best tasting chips and a fresh, crisp salad! Delicious, amazing value and a wonderful experience all round with fantastic service from Rob. Can't wait to go back. Thank you!

We grabbed take away fish and chips from here after riding the Cockle Train and took them down to the foreshore to eat. It was well cooked and very tasty. The fish was only lightly battered which was excellent. Chips crunchy and yummy!

I can't believe that this place has won any awards. I don't know who voted for it but I was greatly disappointed by the meal I was served. The butter fish should have been called batter fish as I almost couldn't find the fish. The...More
