Really friendly customer service and food came out really quickly which was great as we were hungry. Just had the flake and chips but was tasty and really fresh. Nice outlook over the water as well! Thank you!

Got a order of 2 squid, 2scallops, 2 prawn, flake fish n chips. Flake was delicious, squid n prawns ok Thumbs down on the scallops but- sour to taste. 1st time I've had French fries as chips from a FnC place too. Over all I would go back for the flake😋

The best we had had yet in tassie this trip. We ordered 6 in batter freshly cooked a god size and tasted superb. The lady serving and cook were both very friendly. The fish and chips looked pretty good other people were eating. A nice little outdoor deck overlooking fishing boat is available if you want to eat outside.

Stumbled onto this option while viewing the local fishing boats and being scared off by the prices at "Captains Catch".
