Description: A merry old seafood joint in the best little town on Earth called Woy Woy, sitting on a jetty on Brisbane Water on the beautiful NSW Central Coast. A seafood market, take away fish & chip shop and a killer laid back restaurant. Come for a very very very casual dining experience surrounded by pelicans, boats & mangroves. Bring a smile, leave your pretensions at the door and enjoy some of freshest and most delicious seafood you'll ever eat! We're not fine dining, we're bloody good fish & chips on the water with beautiful wines to match. We look forward to seeing you at the Wharf.

A visitor from the UK I visited here with 2 friends. We were sat at a lovely table with a wonderful view. The staff member was friendly and explained the ordering system. We ordered the fish and chips and the seafood platter for 2. A garden salad and some water for the table and some drinks.
The water was room temperature so a little disappointing.
The fish and seafood platter were good but the chips were a funny yellow colour which maybe I'm not used to being from the UK but they were not pleasant. The oysters on the platter were on the small side but everything else tasted good (bar the chips on the platter)
The sauces that accompanied the food really let the side down. They tasted cheap and nasty.

Foodservice was terrible! (4) people ordering (5) entrees for (3) and 1 diner ordering a fried swordfish and chips main. All entrees came quickly but the main fish meal came out grilled (not fried as per the menu sighted) and it arrived when everyone else were near finishing their meals despite a request to chase up the one outstanding order! The waiter was also removing finished meals whilst my main was being consumed! A disaster. We were introducing our ‘foodie’ friends to the restaurant but none of us will be returning (the cook did apologise but quite frankly, not good enough) Business is tough - the owners would not be happy with this sub standard delivery.

We are locals and have eaten here many times. I find it so disappointing every time I visit - hoping it will be better as this place has so much potential. The food offering is over priced - no 2 ways about that. We booked a table for 6.45pm on a Saturday evening, we ordered our starters and drinks (via a QR Code), these arrived promptly just after 7pm and were fine (2 starters and 3 drinks = $100). Waiting staff were keen to take the menus from our tables and we told them on several occasions that we intended to order more food (we were trying to pace ourselves). Close to 7.25pm, we decided to order our next course only to be told “that is a problem as the kitchen is closed”!!! Imagine our surprise - no one had told us that the kitchen would close by 7.30pm on a Saturday night. The waiter checked with the kitchen who confirmed the fryers had in fact been turned off and they could only do oysters or cold prawns. As we’d already had ceviche - we didn’t want another cold meal. Thank you - we would move on. Soooo very disappointing. Come on Fisherman’s Wharf Woy Woy - you can do better. Make the most of the fantastic fresh produce you have (we’ve never had any issue with the fish we buy from your market shop - its first class), tweak your pricing structure and maybe you’d get more happy customers into your beautifully decorated restaurant to enjoy the lovey location.

Great spot. But a $40 minimum spend, very ordinary food and less than ordinary customer service. An underwhelming experience. My third visit and won't be going back.

What a gem. We got the fishmans basket. Wow it was delicious. There was a bit of a wait for our food as they were busy. There’s a playground for children to have a play. There was plenty of seating.
