Surprised I'm not fat since I go here at least once a week. Chip portions are huge and so chip. The chips are hands down the best chips I've ever had. Always tastes perfectly cooked. Had the beef and schnitty burger and both taste nice. Calamari ring portion is huge. 6 giant perfectly cooked rings. Can only get through 3 of them, 4 max. +chips the portion is gigantic for like 9 bucks and would be enough for two people. Never tried the desserts on the display window but theyve consisted looked good. 100% best cheap feed you can get in the area. Just across the beach so location is perf

Across the road from family friendly Austinmere beach. We ordered 2 huge battered savs, a massive plain hamburger, chips & a drink for $22. The food was ready promptly and packaged up to take across the road to the beach. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Fresh food is always the first and foremost. Then it has to be cooked correctly. Then it has to be presented well. Add friendly staff, cool ambience and you have a great meal. That is Shells Diner. Eat in or take your food across the road to the beach. I recently had a brunch there and I could not have asked for more. Just like the old beach cafés I remember as a child.

On a recent ride, my hubby and I came across Shells Diner. It’s not flash looking from the outside but the menu sure sparkles. We had the Breakfast burger which was absolutely delicious. The egg was just runny and the mayo nice and creamy. We sat out front as it was a sunny morning with a lovely coffee and watched the beach parade of people. Definitely recommend this place.

We were looking for a light lunch we could take across to the beach.... what else but fish and chips.

We grabbed a large hot chips that were freshly cooked and delicious. The drinks were ice cold, which is just what you want.

The large serve was plenty for us, a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 teenagers.

You could eat in, our outside on the path but we decided to pop over to the picnic tables at the beach. Great location, good friendly, quick service.
