If you are wanting a crunchy, non-greasy batter then this is the place to come. They have a secret ingredient in their batter that gives it an amazing taste. Get there early as last orders are for 7pm. BYO - which makes it even better. Walk from Rose Gardens Caravan Park. Simple but comfortable large dine in area and staff... More

The battered prawns were good, the fish was ok but the squid rings were fantastic! Best I've ever had. Chips great too!!

May not be the best looking place to get food but the quality and freshness more than makes up for it.

We tried twice to have Dinner at Squid Shack. the first night we waited until 6:30pm to order and was advised that there was a 50 minute wait, The next time we thought earlier may be better and ordered at 5:00pm but the wait was just as long. Perhaps lunch would be a better option?

Not the cheapest F&Cs in town but quaility is good and you can't beat the sea side location right in front of the tranquil marina with the pelicans. The 40 minute wait in peak times (school holiday meal time) is bothersome unless you catch up with friends to bide the time.

The squid shack is definitely not the little place it was when it was served to you from a caravan and was all freshly made but the meal we had as a family was better then last years. The squid these days appears to be prepackaged but could not fault the cooking of our order. Only open every day in... More

The Squid shack has an amazing venue but after that it kind of falls flat. The store is quite expensive and the the food not worth the price. I wouldn't say it is bad, I love fish and chips, which means I am happy when I eat at The Squid Shack but the overall experience is lackluster.

Arrived at 12 noon on Saturday 7 Jan. Not cheap at $29 for the squid , fish and chips however could have easily fed 3. Chips were just chips - nothing fancy or anything to set them apart. Felt ill for hours after the lunch so not my best fish n chips at all. The scenery and location along with... More
