this place was one of 2 open when we stayed. Very average but the service was ok. Because it's one of 2 places open you basically had little choice and they were double booking. Would of preferred more options but meals were passable.

This is obviously a popular place and was the only place that was packed each night when we were there. The menu is simple and everything comes with chips and salad. The wine selection is basically red or white with a choice of sav blanc or chardonnay and one red. No spark.ling wine at all. Service was efficient, my old fashioned prawn cocktail was amazing-fat prawns in a delicious sauce, but both nights my barramundi was on the dry side and bony. Desserts were basic (mud cake, cheesecake-not home made) but good ambience and reasonably priced. We sat outside and were glad of the hearty fire that was burning.

Best things first..... this ‘restaurant’ was the only one offering a full lunch. OK that’s where the accolades stop. The menu was offering trans fats in various forms, disguised and obvious, so we opted instead for the seafood chowder with corn and bacon. That seemed a reasonable choice. We opted for a wine, seemed strange that there was no wine list at a bar. Just a waitress listing the varietals of house wine available, no labels mentioned. Mmm.
The ‘seafood’ chowder arrived. A plate, in my case, full of half potatoes swimming in a heavy cream that did not taste remotely of seafood. There was about 1 tablespoon of chunky salmon, a bit of diced bacon and a couple of spring onions. No seafood, no corn (quite remarkable) and no taste of smokey bacon. My husband did better on the salmon front (maybe the ladle was kinder to him, because whoever served it wasn't watching). Who in their right mind serves a plate of half potatoes in cream?
The waitress’s question as to whether we enjoyed the meal was clearly false as she didn’t register either the silence or the half eaten plate and walked off without an answer.
To sum up ... a sausage roll over the road will leave you with less indigestion and probably score better on the weight watcher scale.

We went here on the 26th of June for lunch, since it was the only place still serving lunch at around 3 pm.

We had some cheesy garlic bread, which was nice. Very greasy, but tasty.

We then both had the fish'n'chips. The fish had way too much batter and the tartare sauce was definitely not home made. Chips were okay.

Wouldn't come back. Service was very unwelcoming as well.

We stumbled upon the Fish Bar our first night in Mission Beach. We ordered the barramundi and were not disappointed. The place was very busy and we were still waited on promptly and got our dinners right away. We enjoyed it so much we came back the next night.
