It was cold outside but the family really enjoyed their feed. It was cosy with a lovely slow burner wood stove that we sat by If you go to Albany and enjoy fish and chips DO NOT MISS visiting this venue

I was disappointed with the Squid Shack. Over cooked food, a bit expensive for what we got. Was busy on the day we wanted to get Fish & Chips so we went back the next day. Ordinary sit down area, could do with a revamp.

Do order the fishcakes, really nice and the red snapper fish and chips are steaky and chewy. Nice twist. I had the shark fish and chips which were quite tender. Not to be missed the P&S squid and chips....

Fish was lovely and fresh and generous serving. Clean and tidy shop. Staff very friendly indeed. Fire going on a cold night, was fantastic.

Service was fast but I was not hugely impressed with the fish and chips or squid. It was Easter. Maybe they were just really busy.

We visit Albany on a yearly basis and every visit includes at least one visit to the Squid Shack. Best salt & pepper squid I've ever tasted!!

Good service at Squid Shack and busy around dinner time. The fisherman's basket was a hit and miss: some of the seafood was lovely, fresh and nicely cooked, but some, including the chips, were not. I did like the option of half serves!

Firstly let me start by saying read all my reviews and see this is the first bad one I have ever put. This place hands down is the worse fish, chips and salt and pepper squid I have ever had to eat. We went through here in 2013 and again in 2015. We thought we would give it another shot.... More
