The fish are straight off the boats and taste great. The place isn't flash, but the prices are good. Can eat inside, or outside overlooking the small fishing harbour, or take-away.

Hi, great you enjoyed the fish. Just to set the record straight at the moment there is no indoor seating, it's outside under cover, or outside on the deck. Cheers.

We had the fish of the day, which was butter fish, for 2 people. It came with a small chips for $16. The fish was cooked to perfection (it was so succulent) and a small chips was plenty for 2 people. They were very friendly.

Take-away fish and chips and salad available all day every day, cooked lobster to order. Outdoor seating available with a glorious view while you enjoy your fish and chips or grilled fish and salad. The Apollo Bay Fishermen's Coop is the home of Southern Rock Lobster and Bass Strait flake. It is situated on the harbour - the only place on the Great Ocean Road still bringing in fish caught fresh from the sea. We offer fresh local fish and seafood for sale as well as a broader range of fish from the market. We sell our world famous rock lobster within Australia and overseas as well as supplying top-end restaurants. We also provide fuel and bait for local fishermen. Five minutes' walk from the main street by road or along the beach, it is a peaceful spot to enjoy fantastic local fish and a view of the bay and the boats in the harbour.
