May not be the best looking place to get food but the quality and freshness more than makes up for it.

We tried twice to have Dinner at Squid Shack. the first night we waited until 6:30pm to order and was advised that there was a 50 minute wait, The next time we thought earlier may be better and ordered at 5:00pm but the wait was just as long. Perhaps lunch would be a better option?

Not the cheapest F&Cs in town but quaility is good and you can't beat the sea side location right in front of the tranquil marina with the pelicans. The 40 minute wait in peak times (school holiday meal time) is bothersome unless you catch up with friends to bide the time.

The squid shack is definitely not the little place it was when it was served to you from a caravan and was all freshly made but the meal we had as a family was better then last years. The squid these days appears to be prepackaged but could not fault the cooking of our order. Only open every day in... More

Came here with family on our last visit to Emu point. Got exactly what we expected out of a good fish and chip shop! The dog was welcome and its in a beautiful spot down at the fishing boat harbour

The Squid shack has an amazing venue but after that it kind of falls flat. The store is quite expensive and the the food not worth the price. I wouldn't say it is bad, I love fish and chips, which means I am happy when I eat at The Squid Shack but the overall experience is lackluster.

Arrived at 12 noon on Saturday 7 Jan. Not cheap at $29 for the squid , fish and chips however could have easily fed 3. Chips were just chips - nothing fancy or anything to set them apart. Felt ill for hours after the lunch so not my best fish n chips at all. The scenery and location along with... More

If you are around Middleton beach or Emu point and all the lunch places are closed, check out the Squid Shack. Amazing sea food and you pay lot less than those famous and high end joints. Had amazing fried Squids and Prawns at 4pm, well past lunch hour. Tip: Try Seaman's Basket.

This restaurant his the feel of the seaside. Basic seating arrangements but it is good to greet your neighbours. It was a bit windy and cold on the day we where there so was not good to sit out side. Good inside if you get a seat. The food is of good portions. Tasted fresh. There is a public toilet... More

We had to wait 45 minutes for an expensive meal which was not good at all. The fish was grey and overcooked, likewise with the chips.
