Don't let the small shopfront put you off. The freshly cooked fish, chips, prawns and fresh made sale we had here was first class. What a great place to go to grab a well priced lunch or dinner

Great food and very reasonable too. Both myself and my partner are from the UK where fish and chips is somewhat a religion and this has to be some of the best we have ever had. I particularly recommend the Calamari.

Fab fish with great range of different fish to have a styles to cook. Good priced kids food which was delicious. Extra bucks for sauces and vinegar which was slightly disappointing. Reasonable price overall for good quality food.

CA$H only but if you were short like I was there is a ATM machine 2 shops down. Great selection of food and cold drinks. Massive portions, fish was well battered and cooked golden and chips were hot and crunchy. Will visit again.

Very good. I got grilled fish with chips the first time and grilled fish and salad the second time. Both good. Box of prawns looks good. Food served in paper box.

Didn't order any of the fish and chips, just purchased some fresh seafood and sauce to take back to our accommodation. Owner was very friendly, even offered to hold on to the seafood while we did a few other errands to keep it fresh. seafood super fresh and the homemade sauce delicious! Fresh seafood a bit on the expensive side,... More

This is a traditional fish and chip shop and so much the better for it. Choose your fish from the chilled counter and they cook it ready for you. Delicious!

Opted for the Red Emporer battered and what can I say other than it was absolutely perfecto. My three year old ate a whole piece of Red Emporer so it must have been really good and they were big pieces too. We all enjoyed it so much I was harassed to order more. Will be putting Whitsunday Seafood Bar on... More

Description
This place is a fantastic seafood take-away. Beautiful, fresh seafood and salads. Right across from some very convenient, sheltered picnic tables on the beach. Only a very short wait on food, even with a lot of people ordering. We were very impressed with the friendly service and thought it should be recommended!!
