For Fathers Day all my husband wanted for lunch were some fresh prawns. Due to big swells and high winds we were unable to get them from the trawlers at Main Beach so went to Charis Seafoods. Were were so disappointed, they were tough, waterey and tasteless. There was no way they were fresh! At a price of nearly $40 per kilo we expected better. Why didn’t we return them? Being Fathers Day they were packed out the door, it was already past lunch time and we would have had to drive to a shopping centre to get some more.

this is the go to place on the gold coast to get fresh seafood although a bit pricey it does have the variety which could be expanded. they also have cooked fish, chips and of course std. plastic tub salads shame on them for using plastic tubs cutlery etc.
feeding pelicans is worth the trip.

We visited charis on the Broadwater at Labrador, & this seafood shop had a massive array of fresh good, choices,choices. We ordered our meals,my daughter and I & went out to the table's/chair benches & sat & enjoyed the food and the breathtaking view of the water. I'd recommend this to everyone. If u dig seafood ?? Then this is the place.. Enjoy.

Firstly they have a great selection of fresh seafoods expensive considering we’re they are and there are better choices in the area . There cooked side are up there in prices cost a bomb for a family for just fish and chips I found the serve size average and expensive for the humble serve of fish and chips will be looking elsewhere in the future

My beautiful wife and I have been here before and love the view. That's about where it stops.
You can't beat the location but food offerings are disappointing.
Is this seafood really fresh as it always tastes like something you buy from the everyday supermarket.
Just go for the atmosphere but be informed as the food will probably disappoint.
