The Fish Shack


I was out on a mad dash buying birthday presents but a gal has gotta stop for lunch. Conveniently located off Bunda street, The Fish Shack only uses fresh Australian sustainable fish while making everything fresh to order.

Beef burgerprime beef, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, red onion and tomato chilli relish ($13.50). This looked like a really good juicy patty and it tasted like a well seasoned rissole. I personally prefer cheese on my burger (well cheese on anything really) and I’m tempted to get a burger next time.

Fish and chipslarge size premium beer battered fish served with chips, dips and lemon ($13.50). I couldn’t go to the Fish Shack and not order fish and chips! Boasting ‘the best beer batter’ using Burleigh 28 Pale ale, I opted for the beer batter fish while resisting getting my usual favourite of crumbed fish. A great coating served hot and not oily, I still think the crumbed would have been better or maybe that’s just a personal preference.

With a simple ordering system of ordering and paying at the counter, food comes out relatively quick and hot. Despite being busy this doesn’t compromise their quality of food. There were a lot of things that caught my eye on the menu that I would like to come back and try.
