Met with friends on Hayborough Beach for a beautiful twilight get together! Had takeaway fish and chips from the Original VH Fish Shop. Chips great, but crumbed garfish and flathead a bit fatty! Good portion sizes!

Takeaway order of Flat Head (crumbed) & chips for the family. Fish was cooked fantastically well and chips were good. Will be back. Fish will normally come battered-but, if you want it crumbed, just ask, and they will oblige.

Fish was good for takeaway but don't eat in: menu covers were filthy, cutlery was stained and service was poor. They even got the bill wrong.

These guys really know how to do the fish/chip dinner, you can eat in or takeaway and order to suit your preference. Its often busy but they do a good job to serve lots of customers if you don't mind a wait of up to 15 minutes.

Great fish and chips, especially after a walk on granite island, best eaten on a bench overlooking the ocean

We called into this fish and chips shop in the early evening to grab a quick meal before heading back to Adelaide after spending the day in Victor Harbor. On arrival, it seemed that many others had the same idea as there was a long queue of customers waiting at the counter. Service was slow and tedious. It took 30... More

Got tea for the family from here, fish was very nice and fresh, only criticism was the use of frozen chips instead of proper home made chips. Otherwise was excellent

Overpriced and poor quality fish and chips. Oh, and don't drink their coffee either!!! 3 meals with 2 coffees and a bottle of water set us back $74 dollars for lunch, the staff member was lovely but at the end of the day it was only a frozen meal!
