Super friendly staff. Fast service. Delicious local seafood, traditional Aussie fish and chips. Great local Mooloolaba seafood (awesome prawns). Car park can be tight/hard to get a spot, but generally parking nearby. Seating upstairs, with a view towards the Mooloolaba beach and canals.

What a rip off!! Ordered crumbed whiting and grilled Barramundi, the whiting was there very small pieces and about 2mm thick WHAT A RIP OFF!!! The Barra was also very small and I would say half the size one should expect!! These 2 pieces of...fish cost around $25. I would suggest you walk straight past. NEVER AGAINMore

There are a few local fish and chip shops in this area but we chose Fisheries on the Spit as it was the busiest (can only assume that means it’s the most popular/best🤷🏻‍♀️). The service was wonderful, with staff having a great process for taking...orders and processing them, especially in light of operating a busy take away style shop given the current COVID-19 situation. The food was tasty and well priced, although perhaps the portion sizes could have been SLIGHTLY bigger. The chips included a delicious chicken seasoning. We will return to this shop.More

We have been twice this Holiday. The Flathead Fish n Chips both times has been poor, with Dried out Flathead and Plastic Chips. We bought three Spanner Crabs both iMessages at $50 per time and only had two out of the six that weren’t Mushy....The staff would know this when they clean them and these should not be sold. Especially at the High current prices. The Selection of fresh Fish has been poor. This shop used to be the Seafood Icon. Now poor quality.More

Very expensive for grilled fish which was so overcooked and dry I had to drown it in lemon juice to get it down. No salt on fish or chips. Chips were not good. Old prawns were mixed in with fresh. So old they would turn...to mush when trying to peel them and weren’t consumed. Wouldn’t return.More

I have frequented this Fish and Chip for years. Always our favourite beach side casual seafood desination. However the prices have gone up over and above. A small piece of grilled salmon in a cardboard tray and paper. $14.90. No chips no salad. Wait. 30...minsMore

Visited Fisheries on the Spit on the 16th May...the first weekend of the easing of restrictions after Covid 19 lockdown. What a disappointment! Ordered whiting, grilled snapper and chips. Both fish were not fresh. Obviously the fish was days old. So unappetising. One would think...that the location would guarantee fresh Tasting fish. Their idea of 'fresh' is not frozen and defrosted but the taste was disgusting. Won't be visiting this place for a long while. Visit another fish shop you could do a lot betterMore
