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.

Decided to go to the Squid Shack for lunch. We where not disappointed. We had the basket for two. Three pieces of Pink Snapper, salt and pepper squid and a serving of chips. All tasted very fresh and tasted good. Mid week in winter on a very nice day. Sat outside looking over the harbour. No wind and sun shining.... More

Went here during the winter with the family. Coming from the UK, we know our fish n chips. However, this little place really was a surprise. The taste of the fish was stunning, the squid was cooked to perfection. Absolutely stunning and well worth a visit if your in the area. Staff were really friendly and welcoming also, really great...

Went here for lunch on a cold and wet Saturday and the food was good. Chips were lovely and not greasy. Typical fish and chip fare.

The fish portions tasted ok; however, the chips were cold and the portion sizes of fish 'n' chips were poor value considering the price. The squid was incredibly tough. During the visit of my family, the owner bellowed a homophobic joke at volume which might reasonably cause offence to customers.

We found this place by accident and then decided to go for dinner that night. It is nothing salubrious but for a fish'nchip shop it wasn't bad and very reasonably price
