We have been to the squid shack for lunch several times. The service is fast and the seafood is always fresh and tasty. The tempura battered squid is lovely. The cafe is situated by the water which provides a great view while eating lunch.

Had lunch (Bronze Whaler and Chips) at the Squid Shack after taking the Kalgan Queen river cruise. Great food, lots of it, good prices and quick service with a lovely view.

Been here a number of times over the years and I'm afraid that it's time that the owners took a break. Service is mediocre and the salt and pepper squid that we loved has been replaced by "a few squid rings". The value for money...More
