Nellies has the usual burgers and stuff but don't be distracted. The reason to go is for the fish and chips.

Although fish dishes are a specialty (my opinion) I had... More

This is such a cool fryer bus. I love to eat their onion rings... its great to grab a feed and blast down the road to Masons Beach for a picnic... be sure to check out the piece of the Berlin Wall that is in the parking lot... and of course the "Whale Oil" paintings remminets from when the movie...
