Three of us ate at the SS last night, and all three meals were thoroughly enjoyed. The presentation was only outdone by the flavours. I can't remember enjoying a meal this much, for a very long time. Well done!
That the Salty Squid even exists in a town of this size is amazing; that it can serve such wonderful food as well is a miracle. Ate there 3 times during our week in Toogoom and each time we were impressed. Both prawn and squid...salads were generous and tasty; the cranberry chicken, delicious; karaage chicken brilliant value and "finger lickin' good"; and the marinara pizza one of the best I have eaten anywhere in Australia. A real find.More
Waitress that took our order was definately not very helpful or friendly but I think this is her personality. Only a few other people in restaurant & still food took forever to come out. Pork buns were yummo but other main meals were really lacking...but perhaps it was due to our choices. Prices were quite high considering the size of the meals 😔 sorry but will stick to our other local favourite.More
Though the only people there, our meals took a long time to arrive.My serving came cold so there was another wait for a reheat. Then we had to line up again to pay as we left. Coffees were good and came promptly. The best they...could do for a fresh juice was reconstituted Brazilian OJ which was disgusting in taste and in price( $6.50 for a small bottle). The meals were large and we left most on our plates. Would prefer to pay a smaller price for a smaller meal.More
We visited this restaurant recently as it came highly recommended from an acquaintance.
The staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. Great value for money. Our meal however, was very disappointing. We ordered a seafood platter for two. It was a good size, Could not...complain about the size of the meal. Taste wise, there was none. Batter was quite fatty and the scallops and prawns were tasteless. Everything was quite bland.
If I visit this restaurant again I won't be ordering the seafood platter.More
We stayed in Toogoom for an extended weekend and visited The Salty Squid twice for breakfast. Absolutely delicious, even our 3 boys loved it and 2 of them are very fussy eaters. Slices from their glass cabinet were a yummy take home treat for afternoon...tea. Pet friendly and lovely staff. Would totally recommend you pay them a visit if you’re in the area.More
Delicious meals in a great setting. Big surprise was the excellent dinner menu on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Staff very friendly and as with most places in the Fraser Coast - dog friendly. We went 3 times- breakfast, coffee and cake and dinner, all...deliciousMore
Delightful staff friendly and efficient. Ordered the seafood platter for two
