Had lunch (Bronze Whaler and Chips) at the Squid Shack after taking the Kalgan Queen river cruise. Great food, lots of it, good prices and quick service with a lovely view.

My family and I were unfortunate enough to find this bait bucket. The flathead my fiancé got smelled and tasted like it had gone bad I guess that's why it was on the special fish of the day board. The squid my sister in law ordered was most certainly from a frozen packet. Before ordering we enquired where the business... More

Restaurant prices for van quality food! Was seriously disappointed given all the hype from the locals. I couldnt taste the flavour of the fish, just batter and oil. Wont be going back any time soon.

People have said this is supposed to be the best F & C in town. I find it so so. Not the place to come to when in High / Peak Season as they can't cope with crowds - long wait for the food and food is greasy due to oil not hot enough due to heavy continuous cooking that... More

We went on the recommendation of a local - maybe they haven't been there for a while. It's a fish and chip shop in a shed - no problem with that but there is a problem with absolutely tasteless fish and less than good chips. We were sorry we hadn't gone to the nearby cafe instead.

Been here a number of times over the years and I'm afraid that it's time that the owners took a break. Service is mediocre and the salt and pepper squid that we loved has been replaced by "a few squid rings". The value for money seems to be seeping away.

Plenty of fish & chip shops around and we try far too many but we always come back to The Squid Shack at Emu Point. Always enough for two, great choices, friendly and very popular.

To have a meal in a warm friendly meeting place by the Marina at Oyster Harbour. The seafood is always cooked in crispy light batter and really enjoyable to eat. The salads prepared are fresh and varied. You are welcome to bring your favourite wine to share and unbreakable glasses are supplied. A wood fire makes the whole indoor area... More

The only problem with our meal is that we couldn't stop eating it and ate a little too much! It's the greasy sea side fish and chips we were looking for! Fish was very delicate and the chips were delicious. Would go again to this cute shack on the boat harbor.
