GREAT TASTING FRESH GURNARD Went to Snapper Jacks due to a late arrival in Whitianga and no desire to cook. Made a phone order which was good to save some time. Ordered four pieces of gurnard and one serve or chips. Not cheap at $32.00...but fish was freshly battered for our order and packaged separately from the chips to keep the batter crunchy. Ended up being six pieces which, along with the leftover chips was a decent lunch for one the following day. Chips expertly cooked. Would go back in a second. 👍❤️More

Our Takeaway dinner from here was very good and most appreciated. The restaurant was clean and tidy and well presented. Staff were efficient and helpful and the cost was average but well within our budget. Good location and obviously frequented by locals and travelers alike.

My husband and I were looking forward to food from here as my husband and his family when there all the time growing up and he had good memories. I think my husband ordered a cheese burger (it was a beef patty) and snapper. I...got two gurnard and a scoop of chips to share. The snapper had flavour but apart from that my fish was flavourless and the chips were too... he said the burger was rather average too... Maybe we got an off order but that’s my review on what we were given :)More

Super delicious Snapper Burger and Chips for $10 - this burger completely surpassed our expectations - we were a bit sceptical and ordered it out of curiosity - we were super pleased with our choice.....it was beautifully cooked and super fresh. The store is incredibly...clean and the staff are very friendly. Don't waste your time and money going anywhere else in Whitianga for fresh tasty fish and chips. The single coops of ice cream are also very very generous in their serving size,More

There was lemon juice all over everything and one of our family members hates lemon. The mussels were one of the smallest I’ve ever seen we will not be having this again they also mixed up our order and we payed for someone else’s order....That was a complete waste of time and money the food overall was not very good. Do not go here. One of the worst takeaways I’ve ever had in Whitianga And probably one of the worst I’ve had ever in my life Simply just simply DisappointedMore
