Our experience today, was friendly service, not such a long wait, the end result the food was poor, soggy greasy chips and a tiny soggy pieces of fish, we concluded the oil was not hot enough. No lemon, very very basic. Value for mony unfortunately...no !More

Had some really nice fish & chips here & also bought some toasties for breakfast one day. Food was really good although the shop itself is a little tired & needs a freshen up cant complain about food or service.

The fish and chips were really good, but they sure do give you a hard time if you try to place an order after 5:50pm (even through, they will tell you as you try to place your order, that the kitchen closes at 6pm).

Stopped by on our way to St Helens for a quick bite. Did nice fish and chips. We also got rolls and patties. Nice good servings - could easily share as kids portion is fairly large. Quite a busy place but does their best!

Refuses to take my order at 5:45pm as the cook screamed “ I have too much to do already”. Terrible customer service, tried the chips the day before and they were soggy but not much choice in town! Drive to St Helen’s is my advice!

this little cafe does the best fish, chips, and calamari you have tasted and they give you huge servings I highly recommend especially on a Friday night, but make sure you get there before 6 pm as they close soon after.

Sitting right on the seafront this location has plenty untapped potential, but it’s run down and needs investment - or a lick of paint at least. It doesn’t fill you with confidence inside or out. But the service is friendly and the food was hot,...fresh and good value. Shame the place doesn’t look better.More

Hmmm, nice fish, salad not dressed (but nice enough)...chips were dreadful, they may have put me off chips for life...which maybe I should be thanking them for :) Beware they close at 6.30pm...last orders at 6.15pm (still broad daylight in Tasmania then!)
