My partner and I go here quite often, always great service and fantatic food. Beautiful crispy batter on the fish and very tasty. Great value for money as well. Definitely the best fish & chip shop I have found in a long, long time.

I buy fish and chips here frequently and sometimes travel from Devonport for them. They are the BEST, fresh and crispy cooked and always have a variety of fish instead of the old flake routine ! Just fabulous

I live locally and this place never fails to cater great seafood and chips! Always seems to be very young staff working but they're very mature and have an outstanding demeanor for customer service! They cook the food in front of you so you know it's definitely fresh and a clean environment. Best fish and chips in Burnie! ☺️

Here you are able to select from a range of fresh fish. There is a display at the front of the shop that has a selection of freshly caught fish and other seafood. You are able to buy crayfish here when in season and also the local delicacy of mutton bird.

We stopped in Burnie today for a quick lunch. The Octopus served up crumbed flathead and chips, and curried scallops with rice. While both were very tasty, the curried scallops were superb! Highly recommended.
