Very very very basic menu. Fish and chips and s/p squid. Thought being that basic they would nail it. The fish has a very weird taste. I couldn't eat it. S/P squid is battered squid. Drum roll.... left best til last. Served in polystyrene containers. 5 thumbs down.

Serves Fish Bits and Chips for just $12. What a bargain and the batter is so light and crispy. Prices are reasonable for everything else on the menu.

This great eatery may not look like "The Place" but It Is. The owner is a super nice, fun guy and the food (Squid Rings and Fries) was perfect. A large serving of perfect calamari rings was only AUS$14. Go here. Enjoy. Tell'em the guy from Arizona and Florida sent you!!

Dinner at The Squid Shack is now a tradition on our trips to Albany. The salt & pepper squid is the best around & the chips are fantastic. Fish & chips are just delicious. Service is fast & friendly, and they're just a stone's throw from Rose Gardens where we usually stay. Looking forward to our next visit & first-night... More

We returned to the Squid Shack for another helping of exquisite Squid n Chips, after stumbling across the place last year. Even tho the weather was not great, the roaring log fire more then made up for it. The food is exceptional, huge portions of fresh cooked, perfect salt n pepper squid, in a really unique location, overlooking Emu Point... More

We ordered fish salt & pepper squid and chips - very tasty, almost too much for 2 people. Great value for money. Friendly and quick service. Great to sit outside and watch the activities out on the water - very relaxing

As a family of 4 we visited squid shack for a last order of fish and chips. We split between the shark and dory. Both were really fantastic...chips were good but not quite a perfect freshly cut and fried version but still a really good family meal. If you're staying at emu point camping site, take a lovely 20 min... More
