We hadn't been to Forster for years and were looking forward to the local fish and chip shop providing local and fresh fish, which it didn't. Just a bit disappointing...

Had dinner at Lobbys while staying in Forster. It has the best fish and chips. It is fresh the service is great you can eat in or take away. Prices are reasonable also. Yummy fish and chips

Lobby's is a bit of an institution in Forster. Even in the off season when other places are quiet, they are always busy at dinner time. The combination of fresh fish & seafood and traditional fish'n'chips menu at reasonable prices makes them a favourite with the locals. Located right next to the lake at the end of the high street...

Lovely looking little cafe. I was disappointed that the cooked seafood was not all freshly caught. But chips were awesome.

We love the chips from Lobbys! Always excellent, hot, crunchy and not oily. Fish is a tad ordinary, but we often buy just chips to enjoy.

Forster really needs a good fish and chip shop. It's a pity that a seaside down does not have a quality takeaway for seafood but Lobby's is the best of an average choice. The food is a bit greasy and is OK for taste but certainly not the quality that you would hope for. I'd suggest you look for another... More

My husband just ordered from here 2 pieces of flathead. When he opened the box as we walked outside he had barely been given 1 piece of fish. My husband went and complained and was told they were small pieces. They also charged him the same price as if he was having chips with it as well. But he couldn't... More
