Dropped in Sunday morning for a snack of chips and a drink on very humid day. Chips very nice and drinks nice and cold.

Went here twice on our holiday for chips and potato cakes and they were excellent both times quick and friendly service as well.

Being locals we have enjoyed our take aways from here to eat across the road near the Noosa River for many, many years. Having interstate visitors recently we wanted them to experience delicious fish and chips at sunset but I was gobsmacked at the increase in prices since our previous visit a few months earlier. I had to borrow money... More

We were the last customers of what looks like was a busy night and we can't complain. Battered and crumbed snapper well cooked with delicious fries and tasty aioli sauce.

Had a steak sandwich. Most probably should have gone for the fish. Steak sandwich was average at $11.95.

We ordered this evening crumbed barramundi (crumbed in parsley and breadcrumbs) and a serving of medium chips. This was really lovely, very fresh and hot. Nice service by either the owner or customer service guy.

I do not like giving bad reviews but I was so disappointed with the food from here that I just had to say something.... Worst fish ever! Couldn't even eat it.
