We went to the restaurant for our lunch in a group of 15 family members and order some set lunches and Ala Carte order like mussels, pasta. We ordered steak from the set lunch menu and specifically asked for medium rare but it turns out to be over done. The reason given to us was the beef cut was not... More

This restaurant is situated at a wharf kind of place beautiful location with lots of parking space. the fish served with the food we ordered was excellent real succulent and delicious. Prices are reasonable considering the big portion given for each type of food ordered. spacious restaurant space on the inside with unique features and decor

This place needs some serious updating, the venue, the menu, the service... everything. The service is poor, the menu is overpriced and the quality of food leaves a lot to be desired. I guess the owner thinks that just because they are waterside in Fremantle that they can serve very average food and charge fine dining prices. No no no

I love seafood!! The price isn't too bad for the more basic choices, we ordered 2x seafood platters and they were stacked full! Fresh, good tasting seafood. Loved the layout of the place as well, it is absolutely awesome! The staff were friendly and polite, the food was awesome and there is even the option of sitting on the deck... More

The place is really cold after sunset. The place is filled with lots of seagulls surrounding the areas. The sea at the opposite is really huge and being able to capture a beautiful sunset! They serving of the fish & chips are really huge, with 3 pieces of fish plus a large portion of chips as well. But the sad... More

This turned out to be a good experience for our group of eight. Enjoyed the beautiful view, good wine, and good service. The place also has a nice ambience with the volkswagen minivan split in two, etc. I found my barramundi and chips platter to be quite delicious. They also had a good selection of wines. I did not consider... More

thought we'd pop into Freo and have lunch at Kalis but it was packed so we sat down at Joes Fishshack for a bite. Great location just sitting there in the harbour. We ordered a fish basked and a fish'n'chips. All the food was battered, and there was lots of it. Next time we come here we will only order... More

Worst fish and chip meal I have ever experienced. Very greasy taste and the fish pieces were so flattened one could hardly taste any fish under the coating. We both left half our meal as it was too indigestible. We should have noted that whilst other close restaurants were well patronised for the lunch period, Joe's only had another table... More

I do appreciate that the wharf at Fremantle is a prime restaurant spot so it's not going to be budget eats and we chose Joe's takeaway as it wasn't as busy as the other choice. Also in fairness to this restaurant we were not in their fine dining area but this is not excuse to serve overcooked fish that had... More

We stayed overnight in Fremantle on a Thursday night for my husband's 50th birthday, so I decided to take him here for dinner (we had our EntertainmentCard to use). I know Joe's Fish Shack is mainly a seafood restaurant, however, as keen steak-lovers we had to try 'Joe's Steak & Prawns'. OMG the rib-eye steak (served on the bone) was... More
