“Very lively waterfront bar”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

My favorite thing bout The Lucky Shag is definitely the location. It has teh most amazing outdoor terrace,( which is a good 3/4 of the bar) which over looking the Swan River. There is always a lively atmosphere, and your always guaranteed a good night. They do serve food, it is pub grub, mainly chips and battered fish, but goo for what it is,though you won't alway get a table to sit down and eat due to it being so busy. Get night out, but make sure to bring you ID there strict enough onnly place I ever still get IDed

“Lively, good crowd but still didn't have to wait long for a drink”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Stopped here for a couple of hours on a Friday night and really enjoyed it. It was a calm night and the outside waterfront area was fantastic.
The place was packed and we left around 9.30pm.
Meals were simple but good and although it was busy, I never had to que up for long for drinks.

“Great Bar, tasty food right on the water”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The restaurant is right on the water next to the quays of Perth. You get perfect views along the river. Inside is an excellent bar set up with lots of screens if you want to watch a bit of sport. Your watching isn't interrupted if you need to go to the toilet - yes there are screens in the toilet. You can get a variety of beers wines and cocktails. The food is tasty and very reasonably priced. Foods are typically pizza or tasting plates or sea food baskets. If your a tourist or your showing people around this is a great place to bring people. Its easy going here and not trashy like some bars in Perth. If your driving theres limited parking just outside the bar but across the road about 200m is a large car park.

“Good counter meals, waterfront views”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Great spot by the Swan River, one of the few waterfront places to eat in Perth. Good meals, friendly staff and service.

“Lucky Shag Waterfront Bar”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Lovely place to have something to eat and drink whilst overlooking the Swan River in Perth. Very busy place, especially on a Friday or Saturday evening but the views are spectacular. Definitely worth a visit whilst in Perth.
