This is a popular spot on western beach for fish and chips which are seved on a cardboard box. They have a sit down area to eat your fish and chips with plastic utensils. The food is good but overpriced.

Once you find the boat house for some fish and chips along the geelong esplanade you'll be glad you did. You can enjoy some fresh fish and chips with a great view of the bay and pier.
