We went for dinner on a Tuesday night and it wasn't busy but had a nice relaxed atmosphere. We chose here because I felt like something other than fish for dinner and this place offers that. We had a pasta dish, a grilled chicken with chips and coleslaw which was yummy. A side salad and a garlic bread. All of... More

I tried their grilled seafood platter that offered plenty of choice and food that was nice enough but nothing exceptional. The mussels were the best thing on the dish, the mackerel ample however was a little over cooked. The prawn skewer was overpowered by garlic and the stuffed squid would be better served without the stuffing. The service was pleasant... More

What better way to welcome in the sunny weather than with a trip to Freo n salty fish n chips by the water? I had the semi-healthier option of grilled barramundi and chips which was a huge portion and deliciously seasoned with herbs and spices. The fish was fresh and tasty. The kids had the traditional battered and it was... More

Delicious fresh seafood in the Fisherman's Basket, large portions, very reasonably priced and a great location. Hard to find a car park spot nearby though.

We ordered the Steak & Prawns (A giant bone-in rib eye cooked perfect rare with garlic prawns, vegetables and incredible mashed potato) and the Chilli Mussels (A giant bowl of mussels coated in red sauce that had the most wondrous smokiness and right amount of chilli, accompanied by some fluffy bread). The food was excellent, but unfortunately the service of... More

A group of four of us wandered around Freo for a while and then went to the esplanade. One of our number recommended Joe’s Fish Shack and it did not disappoint. He ordered garlic bread 4 big pieces and stuffed prawns for entrees. The other three ordered a platter, again so substantial that the lady in our group took a... More

Arrived at early lunch-time at Joe's Fish Shack with friends who had just arrived on a cruise ship....Being the only outside seated customers, before the area quickly filled up, ensured that our combined order of fish and chips and seafood baskets was quickly served....The prices for these were $16-18 for the fish and chips and $18 for the seafood basket....

My wife and I ordered a seafood platter for one and a large fish and chips but asked to swap the fish from the offered frozen hoki to fresh barramundi and pay the difference. The difference originally can back as $10 but 5 minutes later the poor waitress was sent back by her manager to charge me an extra $15... More

We came here for lunch and had the chilli mussels, paella and char grilled chicken. I had the chilli mussels and there was plenty of flavours with every bite. The dish was still hot after 15 minutes of eating and the garlic bread complemented the remaining chilli sauce. The waitstaff were professional and friendly. Overall a good experience with good...
