Terrible food. Fish came in a square. Haven't seen square fish before. Salad was terrible. Kid's meal was very much a freeze and fry job. Go anywhere else. Anywhere.

Quick service but disappointing food. Ordered the fishermans basket for two to get a selection. Other than the oysters everything was in a thick beige batter and was really greasy. Beer was fine, white wine was room temperature.

Nothing special about the Fish Shack. Good portions but fish tasted plain. I got grilled which looked better than my mate's fried but with the abundance of fish and chips places in Manly, I think this rates on the low end. Location is a plus,...More

We had to have fish and chips by the shore, so we found the Fish Shack and were able to order take away. The fish was great, the chips were crisp, and it was a great way to end our day at Manly!

Located across the road from the Manly Beach, this is a lovely place to treat your hunger!. Being not very big you will be served faster by the friendly staff. The place is warm and cosy and wasn't that noisy. Food was good with large...More

Very busy but one can understand this as the fish was very fresh and the chips enjoyable. Plus you had the view of the Beach.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
