This small place is great for crumbed or grilled snapper and snapper burgers. Often you have to wait 10-20 minutes during peak times, but worth the wait.

Beach life can be tiring, so whether you prep your day, enjoy lunch in the sun or a late afternoon beach burger extravaganza Captain Jacks is perfect. Fantastic fish and chips and fabulous staff has made Captain Kerr's a regular for us. I reckon if you you look closely enough you'll see Captain Jack on the horizon.

Needed a seafood chowder. There are two sizes priced at $8.50 and $12.50 in takeaway containers. Naturally, I went for the larger one. Rich creamy base with good flavour containing three large juicy firm prawns, three large mussels and one good scallop. Good prices and if you are in the nearby Top 10 campground or a Top 10 member there... More

My wife and I visit the Orewa Campground about once every three months and almost always buy fish and chips from this shop. This time I not only tried the crumbed tarakihi and chips but I also had the seafood chowder which was $8.50. If a seafood chowder is available at an outlet, I always try it and have done... More

Stopped in her for dinner - order and pick up for the family. The ordering took ages; waiting for it to be cooked took ages; the final product not great

My first taste of NZ fish and chips. I give it 9.5 out of 10. The serve size good. The batter crisp and tasty. The fish well cooked and fresh. The chips crisp on outside and fluffy on inside.

I use the Top 10 campground close to Captain Kerr's often and it is good that they offer a 10% discount to the Campground users however, it is about the quality and service Captain Kerr's offers. I have purchased fish and chips there at least seven times. I note that all reviews are while it was under previous owners and... More

We went there after reading other good reviews. Unfortunately we were unlucky. The fish was terribly greasy and over salted. We threw away a chunk of it in the end. The fries were also over salted. No lemons provided!! The "squid rings" are them frozen processed disgusting ones that taste and look nothing like squid or calamari rings I personally... More

If you fancy a night out in a fish and chip shop reading magazines, then this is the place for you. I visited here a couple of weeks ago to buy $8 worth of chips, yes chips, nothing more complicated than that. One and a quarter hours later I left with the chips and my money back. I've never seen...
