Good location, good food and really nice decor. Feels like you’re on board of a pirate ship :) problem is the place is too warm and stuffy especially when it’s a weekend.
We tried the mixed seafood grill. It was good. I totally recommend the devil fired oysters

The inside of the restaurant is pirate themed! Very cool and interesting :) Also, super friendly servers! We came here for dessert but wish we also had dinner here as people around seemed to be having a nice time having their dinner! Oh, and this restaurant is only open for dinner, take note! The chocolate cake here is warm, sweet & fudgey. Loved it! :)

To be fair we didn't really do much research beyond seafood nearby and a glance at the reviews saying it was good. Oh, and the name is awesome.

When we walked in we realised it was a themed restaurant, kitch nautical stuff everywhere. It was very cramped and hot. The staff were friendly and pretty good/quick when we asked for anything.

The food was not great. The chowder had good flavour but not much in chunks of seafood. The rest wasn't great. Very much a deep fried sort of place.

Having said that the cocktails we good and we would def take kids here as they would have a ball.

If your looking for a themed experience with nice staff or some seafood with the kids this is the place. I would not go looking for quality seafood or an intimate meal with your partner.

Wow!!!, great restaurant, lovely interior setting all ship themed, attentive and helpful staff, just to start. The menu is very extensive , we had the crumbed scallops, crumbed swordfish (fresh), chipotle calamari all with the freshest salad and great chips , 10/10 for me and our friends, the absolute best though was their seafood chowder, really was the best we have ever had !!!, cannot commend this restaurant enough.

Were arrived at 5:30PM having been told that we had to be out by 7:30PM. We ordered straight away and waited 30 minutes for the starters and 90 minutes for the mains - which were OK but nothing special. Nice young waiting staff but appallingly slow service and at $60 per person for some bread and fish and chips not good value either.
