We went here after reading the reviews but were disappointed. My husband ordered the steak burger; bun was half stale. $9.50 for that and the bun isn't even fresh ... so annoying! Asked for chicken salt on the chips ... when we got home realised...More

Lovely fresh seafood with generous servings. On the esplanade and beach. Enjoy your lunch in the park across the road and the cool sea breeze.

The best fish and chips and seafood in town. Fresh and well-cooked - not too greasy. Very nice potato scallops with chicken salt. Tip - Don't order too much because the servings are generous. Price is pretty good too. Very popular so avoid lunch rush...More

Always have a few takeaway meals from Maddigan's when visiting Hervey Bay, superb as usual. Cooked just right. Fish & other seafood great as also were the chips. Highly recommend.

Interesting meal. Plenty of fresh options. One of those was what my daughter and I ended up ordering. Mixed reef fish 🐠 and chips 🍟for two for $25. We asked if we could have battered for my daughter, but crumbed for me. Not a problem....More

Grab fish and chips here and eat them in the park over the road. Good service and huge portions. $1.90 for a small pot of ketchup is a little steep though.

Fresh seafood! Always has a long queue due to its demand. You can have your food taken out and eat just across the road at any time of the day. To top it all of, there is an ice cream place just beside it!
