Had my fair share of their burger with the lot. All I can say is it's average at best. Not bad but not outstanding either.

I thought I received fried onion rings but it turned out to be 4 fried calamari rings, a fried crab stick, 1 fried scallop, 1 barramundi filet and lots of thick fries. Received two tiny containers of tartar sauce and when I asked for more they wanted to charge me!!

We had 3 breakfasts here sitting outside with freshly made bacon butties and juice. The staff were helpful and would cook what you asked for.

Great fish and chips to take across the road to the beach. Good prices, they do breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also have lots of other fresh yummy food and drinks, small grocery store and we had a very good breakfast there at a good price.
