Our meal was rather disappointing smallish fish quite tasty tho, chips were not nice...why don't chippys stop buying in bulk and make chips from a potato? Tomato sauce $1.50 for a small tub of the cheapest tomato sauce ever...Made it all taste unpleasant. There used...to be a great restaurant around the corner but since covid it seems to have disappeared leaving only the very best one ...but that has long queues and is a couple dollars more for everything...prob worth it tho! Upstairs seating scruffy.More

Used to have great fish and chips but now very disappointing. Orange Roughie was good, flathead was dry and the flake was inedible! Tough, grey and tasteless! Even other sharks would reject it! OK maybe the chips would be good? No almost inedible as well!...Tasted like day old chips reheated in a microwave. Yeah that good!More

Have been here a number of times when visiting Sunshine Coast. Ordered about $165 worth of seafood including 2 spanned crabs, 4 bugs, 1.5kgs of prawns, mussels and seafood sauce. Asked the guy if he could cut up the crab and bugs. No problems at...all. Watched as he meticulously cut up and cleaned all crustaceans with the precision of a 3 hatted chef. Excellent work, and I told him so. Then went back to the apartment and had a feast of fresh and tasty seafood.More

After being locked out of Australia for 2 years, we are back on the coast. This was one of the first treats we gave ourselves. If the food was great before, it is superb now! We ordered barramundi and potato scallops. Absolutely delicious! Light batter,...crispy and good serving sizes. Highly recommended!More

Arrived early at 4.30pm to avoid the lines and get a table, still a fair few people eating. Ordered the snapper, calamari, chips and a potato scallop. Fish and calamari were delicious. Chips and scallop were ok. Nice aioli. Overall very good value for money...considering the price.More

Part of the reason we use Mooloolaba as a stopover , is that it’s a great port for fresh seafood. Fisheries on the spit is a must do and all others fail in comparison. The staff will clean and cut your Moreton bay bugs for...you so you can add on to their quality fish and chips. You know that it’s good when even their fish bites are made of snapper, trevally or whatever decent fish is on. The chips are the old school fat chunky ones and all fried products are cooked to perfection with no oily aftertaste. There’s usually plenty of seating in the shade or sun and it’s always a highlight of the trip visiting here!More

We always return to the Fisheries to buy our fresh seafood and fish. Prawns are always the best. Crabs large, fresh and delicious. Oysters probably the biggest and freshest we have ever had in the area. Large selection of 'wet' fish: the ocean trout particularly...good value. We could not fault and highly recommendMore

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
