Nice and friendly and fast service. The seafood chowder was good as was the tempura battered fish. Good family restaurant.

Excellent service- we ordered and realised I didn’t feed the parking meter, by the time I got back my food was ready. Good fish and chips, excellent octopus (perhaps a bit small but I had to share) Highly recommended

We wanted fast takeaway seafood and I needed chowder. We got it here. The chowder was fabulous and the battered fish excellent. This place had the best chips in Hobart.

For a light and bright fresh fish, salad and chips dinner, we spontaneously selected Fish Frenzy in Hobart and we were delighted with Salt and Pepper Calamari Entree (Gluten Free) with Fresh Grilled Blue Eye Trevalla Main Course (also Gluten Free). The Calamari was fantastic...and the Grilled Blue Eye Trevalla was moist and perfectly cooked. The portion sizes were generous. The salads were fresh and healthy. The staff were welcoming, helpful, cheerful and professional. Great fun dinner!More

Was looking forward to a Chippy dinner, unfortunately my fish was dry, my husband had the same fish but battered and he said the opposite. Go figure, my chips weren't crunchy and not enough.

Recommended that we visit and headed there for lunch on 18th March. My wife ordered the Little Frenzy, I the Salt & pepper calamari with Caesar salad and a Cascade lager. Order and pay at the counter. Service ok but very impersonal. I had almost...finished my lager when the meals became available. Ample on the plates, tasty and filling, but have enjoyed better elsewhere.More

We fell upon this restaurant on our first night in Hobart. The food and in particular the fish, was cooked beautifully. The prices were a little higher than we would normally pay but the food was lovely. The ambience was reasonable, the restaurant was pretty...busy but also very casual so we took this into consideration when deciding to eat there. Would recommend the food.More

Having lived in Hobart for 18 years Fish Frenzy was always our go to when we had visitors or wanted a nice meal of Blue Eye, Chips and a Salad. Since moving to Richmond we don't get to go to Fish Frenzy very much especially...during Covid so on Friday evening we decided to stop and get a take-away. Fish nothing like it was and chips dry and felt like they were left around before putting in the order. We did eat on the drive home and the Fish was larger serve but not moist and cut differently. What happened has it changed owners and to be honest we will not hurry back. Sorry but we can buy Fish and Chips in Richmond on a Friday night.More
