Noosaville Fish Market

11 Hilton Terrace, Tewantin

An institution around the Noosa area, the Noosaville Fish Market closed it’s doors earlier this year after 60 years of faithful service.

But don’t fear, they have merely relocated! You can find them at the Hilton Terrace Shops in a bigger and better shopfront still serving the traditional fish and chips that generations of locals have grown up on.

Definitely one for visitors to tick off the list!

Maisie’s Seafood and Steakhouse

251 Gympie Terrace, Noosaville

From one institution to another and Maisie’s Seafood and Steakhouse has been around since the 1920s. It saw off the Great Depression and even became a favourite for soldiers stationed in the area during the Second World War.

There’s something for everyone on this menu including the very traditional beer battered fish and chips and fisherman’s basket.

Grab a seat and tuck into a slice of history!

Nosh Express

7/49 Hastings Street, Noosa Heads

A more modern eatery, Nosh Express is conveniently located on Hastings Street. They offer your traditional fish and chips as well as some monster burgers.

They even do a wide variety of salads which are an important part of their ‘Healthy Food Philosophy’. Nosh also pride themselves on sourcing as many ingredients and produce from Queensland.

River Deck Restaurant

Noosa Marina, Tewantin

Finally, for a more formal dining experience visitors can head to the River Deck Restaurant. As the name suggests they are located right on the Noosa River with a relaxing breeze always present.

The menu offers a range of gourmet options as well as oysters but at the end of the day if fish and chips or a seafood platter is what you want that’s what you get!
