The food here is very good, the quality is very good and it tastes great of course. It's in a convenient location and opposite a nice park along the water. We had a combo pack, it had pretty much every standard piece of food you'd expect when ordering fish and chips. Would definitely return.

We had the seafood basket for two $27 best value for money. Top seafood on the coast always the best quality.

This has to be the best Take Away seafood on the Tweed. It is fresh and if you want you can actually pick you own pieces. The servicings for their chips a excellent.

Came here for lunch on a Sunday. We got the battered dory and chips, some calamari, scallops and chips. We walked across the road and ate it in the shade of the trees with views of the water. The fish was cooked very well and wasn't dry at all. The scallops were also good. The chips and calamari were okay... More

After looking at the reviews, thought I would give it a go. Not disappointed. The fish was cooked well, not too greasy and well priced. The parking was plentiful and a great park with tables and chairs across the road by the river to sit and eat.

We never miss an opportunity to stop at Scales when staying at or passing through the southern end of the Gold Coast. Most of the seafood is local with the provenance clearly identified. You can choose your own seafood for preparation, order from the menu or stock up on really fresh produce to take away. Highly recommended although be prepared... More

Frontage could be upgraded and better accessibility from road. Great range of selective fresh seafood you have off order menu or select your own and get cooked pretty special.
