About 15min walk from the wharf, ample parking, Karen was our waitress and was fantastic, made us feel very welcome and answered all questions regarding the menu, nothing was too much trouble, we went early and didn't book, luckily we got a table ... Place was packed pretty quick, therefore would reccomend to book..

Scallops as entree we well cooked and flavoursome, the BBQ seafood was Devine, consisted of, scallops, Morton bay bug ( from the lobster family) salmon, Mooloolaba prawns, served with fresh ans light side salad, chcolate and date pudding and the cheese board are al throughly reccomend. The best meal we had during our stay...

During our recent trip to Mooloolaba my husband and I dined out for every meal and found amazing food to be a little elusive.
A local recommended Fish On Parkyn so we thought we'd check it out. We were a little reluctant since it was a few km's from the main strip and from the outside it didn't look like anything special. I was also a bit disappointed that there was no view of the ocean or waterway but we decided to give it a go anyway.
We were so glad that we decided to give it the benefit of the doubt as we were blown away by the outstanding food & service.
We both had the seafood chowder which was to die for! As a main I had the BBQ Seafood plate and my hubby had the Massaman Duck. Both were exquisite.

No visit to Oz should miss a chance to have a seafood Chow down. We took ourselves to the Mooloolaba Marina on the off chance that we would luck in on a park and a table. It was midday but we managed to secure a space for the hearse and then we dropped into Parkyn's and lucked in on a table fore four. The Restaurant is designed for indoor/outdoor ambience with ground to roof panels. It was a tad cold so we asked for the Blinds to be lowered.

The Waiter was a very pleasant chap with a lively commentary that was quite entertaining a pleasure to meet someone with a personality rather than the pre programmed androids you Meet far to frequently . Water appeared, the wine order taken and we selected our mains.

We were hungry so we ordered a dozen Hervey Bay Scallops to start. A bottle of unbaked Chardonnay was ordered and we settled in. The Scallops were good examples with a nice dressing that didn't overwhelm the delicate scallop favour.

For our mains three of us chose the Barbecued seafood platter and the fourth companion. Went for the Fish (Snapper) and Chips.

I thought my Seafood Platter was very good. The selection included Prawns, half a Moreton Bay Bug, Salmon and Hervey Bay scallops. Accompanying this were some hand cut wedges.

Upside
Well prepared fresh seafood
Attentive and professional wait service
Good ambience and no canned Muzak

Downside
Too far to come to!
