The seafood isn’t always fresh but sometimes it is and the price fluctuates all the time depending on holidays as a local I expect better for the price. Maybe if they employed some staff with experience instead of school kids the food would be cooked...More

Have dined here with friends a number of time after scuba diving. So we are really hungry!!! The swordfish and calamari are super good. Chips are cooked perfectly. Portions are a good size. Staff members are friendly. See you again soon!!!

Originally went to the fish market around the corner but refused to pay the prices. They had "large" prawns that were not large. Found this place around the corner that actually had large prawns and a bit cheaper. Not the best I've had but still...More

We always look forward to fish and chips at the spit when we travel to Sunshine Coast, but after this year our family tradition will stop. Firstly the prices have sky rocketed, very little is fresh with most fish imported from NZ or frozen, this...More
