Had lunch here. Took one portion of the mix seafood menu which was enough for two people. Friendly staff, decent fish and chips.

Been here many times and the fish is fantastic. Now they have changed to a new chip there not as good. Wish they would go back to the old chips from early last year.

Decided to buy lunch at Maddigan's as this place is quite popular in Hervey Bay... We purchased Fish and chips which were quite nice and bugs and prawns ... these last two items had been frozen and we're watery and mushy with no flavour... could not eat them after trying a couple of prawns.. bugs the same problem ..

Been buying fish and chips from this this shop for over 20 years. The owner (Jim) is a really nice guy and they always provide ample portions for their "specials" displayed on the counter. The seafood salad is pretty good too.

Fantastic fresh fish and chips with good variety of fish to choose from. Grab a table across the road in the park to enjoy it.

The service could do with some improvement, but the food is great! We had a very rude lady serving us. I asked for a burger with no bun and aioli instead of sauce and was giving quite a hard time. The cook however did a beautiful job. It tasted amazing and we've been back since.

Great pit stop for fish and chips. Rumored to be the best in town. Certainly busy when I popped in which is always a good sign for a chip shop on a Wednesday night.
