Have been here before and the food has been ok. This time we ordered 2 meals and the lady said 15-20minutes. We waited 1 hour for our meals. The lady gave us our food but had no drinks that we ordered, had to ask for them. What made me most upset is she gave no apology for being so late with our meal. I said are you going to apologise, she gave a stupid look and said nothing. I go to McDonalds and they apologise when I wait 10 minutes. All I can come up with is that your staff have egos way too big
The meals we got were super oily and made us both feel sick.
Avoid, I don’t know why they have the rating they have.

Well,not so good tonight.
The first time we came here was lovely,2nd time ok third time tonight sorry we did.
Ordered a delish pack I think it was,2 fish,supposedly fish of the day perch,chips,sea scallops,prawn cutlets,calamari,thai fish cakes.
Honestly everything tasted the same,oily and batter or crumb. We also bought potato scallops and bundaberg drinks
Tearing the potato scallop,with half the side of batter on it produced oil.
The chips were only warm as if they had cooked them first and left them.
Everything is out of frozen boxes,nothing tastes or looks fresh.
Place is clean and is right on the beach, 2 good points.
But overpriced. A large box of chips thats the same amount for $7/8 anywhere else is $15 here. Making up for the tourist trade.
Seats outside,but we went up the rd a few minutes to eat as it was raining.
The drinks were only must cool as well.
Service is so slow,2 people in front of us,4 behind us and it took 20 min and 2 people behind us got their big orders first.. ice cream is also available.
Id like to see the place up,there game with fresh tasty seafood not frozen boxed stuff and changing the cooking oil would help too. Totally wasted $35+ tonight. Sorry wont be going back unless someone tells,us they are producing fresh seafood,parking isnt large so its get it if you can

Calamari was lovely and fresh, not too salty and with the perfect amount of pepper. The prawn cutlets were also tasty.

These guys have the yummiest fish and chips. Though they were probably far oilier than you would want they were still delicious. I have gallbladder issues so probably wouldn't eat here again due to how oily they were, but the rest of the family can enjoy on our next holiday. Super delicious!!
