Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN AFTER WHAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED! DO NOT BRING FAMILY OR KIDS! I have been to this establishment a few times over the years, but have never experienced this situation. Last night (14 February) my partner and I arrived at...6:45 to a normal queue out the door knowing they close at 7pm. We approached the lady at the door to ask if we had made it in time. She said,"yes you did we cut the line off at 6:55." Eventually we got to the front of the line and was meet with the girl at the counter her name was Amy. She was the RUDEST person I have meet in customer Service. She was very rude, short and blunt with the very few questions I had asked her! Upon paying for the meal I looked at her and simple said, "smile more." Amy then looked at me and said, "F**K OFF." After this in complete shock, I spoke with the lady at the door and told her what had happened. She replied back to me, "oh no that would not have been Amy she wouldn’t say that." So now after being abused I am now accused of lying. She also made the comment about how understaffed and busy they are, which also has nothing to do with me. I then said to her, "look I understand how busy you are, but no customer should be told to F**K OFF under any circumstances. All I would like is an apology for the out of line comment." We all walked to the front of the line to meet with Amy. The lady at the door retold her what I said to her, Amy looked at us all and said, " yes I did tell them to F**K OFF and I am not sorry about it and will not apologise." Amy then walked off out the back and never came back. I am completely disgusted about this situation of poor customer service and management involved. There was no conclusion and no sorry given. Being a gold coast resident for 20 years I have never experienced a situation like this.More

We have been to Peters every time we’re on holidays in the Gold Coast, best fish and chips, In town and other sumptuous seafood variety, a bit pricey, but worth it. The wait is a bit long considering it is a holiday period.

+ Amazing fish, calamari and potato scallops. Food was well portioned, the customer service was top notch with friendly and helpful staff. - Wait time was quite lengthy, not much seating outside. Ibis were within the seated area and around the queue. Overall, an amazing...place for a reasonably priced lunch however be prepared to wait for 30 odd mins for food. Would highly recommend checking out the spot.More

The once great fish bar is no longer, the special $10 Vietnamese Bassa is a shocker. There is hardly any seafood on display anymore !! The tables are dirty and it’s packed !! Give it a miss

Waas good to see a staff member opening the doors for people. You don't...get that often and it was much appreciated. The prices weren't to bad. Food was pretty good. Would go back again.More

A great place for a cheap lunch of freshly cooked fish and chips. This place is on the road to Seaworld. You can buy fresh sea food here too but we went there for the fish and chips. You order at the counter. The options...were NZ hoki with chips $10 or Whiting $15. It was a huge portion of chips. You can have it battered or crumbed and after 12 pm grilled as well. You sit outside in the side street at picnic tables to eat and get harrased by the birds. Good value.More

The best squid rings I have ever had. An unpretentious & obviously very popular family venue. Very casual. Just perfect. Adequate seating under cover. Will definitely seek out again. Was recommended by friends.

It is not a restaurant. It is a take away fish and chip shop. The tables outside are public benches, therefore you won't be able to book a table.
