This place has got an excellent rep in Hervey Bay so we gave it a try. We chose the grilled red emporor and it was cooked to perfection. The calamari and potato scallops were pretty average though, the potato scallops were very oily. We were served fairly quickly though which was good

Best fish and chips I've had for a long time. Very fresh with crunchy crumbs. We also had a lovely salad. Tip: ring ahead and order

Maddigans in Hervey Bay is an institution when it comes to fish and chips. Would I go out iof my way to go there? No. There are better. However, The choice of fish you can have is great, the chips are ok. Try it, you might like it!

We heard of Maddigans via word of mouth and decided to give it a go. It has a small shop front with limited seating outdoors, roadside. The prices are quite expensive for the quantity and quality of the product served. We ordered the 'Family Pack' as we were dining with another couple. We asked the girl behind the counter if...
