This local little fish market is soooooo excellent. The local fresh seafood is divine. And the staff was very friendly. We shared the prawns, oysters, and grilled fish and sat outside in the pouring rain. But it was fabulous!!!! I would go back!

What is great about scales is you pick out your fresh seafood, then they cook it for you. This way you know what you are getting. Takeaway and sit in the park across the road. Their prawns are the best too.

Took the advice of locals and had lunch at Scales today. The portions were large and the price very reasonable. To top it off, the food is delicious. We had prawns, cod, and flathead. All were extremely fresh and perfectly cooked. This place is a must visit!

The food here is very good, the quality is very good and it tastes great of course. It's in a convenient location and opposite a nice park along the water. We had a combo pack, it had pretty much every standard piece of food you'd expect when ordering fish and chips. Would definitely return.

We had the seafood basket for two $27 best value for money. Top seafood on the coast always the best quality.

This has to be the best Take Away seafood on the Tweed. It is fresh and if you want you can actually pick you own pieces. The servicings for their chips a excellent.

Came here for lunch on a Sunday. We got the battered dory and chips, some calamari, scallops and chips. We walked across the road and ate it in the shade of the trees with views of the water. The fish was cooked very well and wasn't dry at all. The scallops were also good. The chips and calamari were okay... More
