Nothing conjures up holiday images by the beach like the typical snacking experience, which is why the best fish and chips in Brisbane are all the rage.
So popular are the good old fish & chips that some visitors cannot possibly take on a holiday without sampling some of the top fish and chips joints at their destination. The simple combination of fish and deep fried potato slices has never ceased to amaze visitors in Brisbane, and this explains in part, the sheer number of fish and chips joints in town.
These joints are as varied as the visitors themselves, and they range from the contemporary design to the traditional setting. Here are the top ten places that serve the best fish and chips in Brisbane, alongside the relevant contact details.
The Fishmonger’s Wife takes the top spot for the best fish and chips in Brisbane, and for many reasons, least of which is its name. Fishmonger’s Wife has carved a niche for itself in the market, thanks to the service on location. You must sample the fresh king snapper fish, prepared fresh and battered in beer, served alongside your potato chips.
The Fishmonger’s Wife – 6/83-93 Lytton Rd, East Brisbane 4170, (07) 3891 6464
Jellyfish is a must visit for visitors who love the flavours that go along with fish and chips. You get to choose between fish that is grilled or that which is baked. There’s a wide range of batters available for your fish, including beer, curry and saffron. Gluten-free batter is also available for those who are allergic to gluten. The chips are presented with your choice accompaniments. The view of the river is simply beautiful too.

Chumley Warners has set itself apart as one of the most popular fish and chips joint, and not just because of its British-style shop but also because of the tantalizing potato chips.

Blue Ocean Seafood is a great option too for visitors who want to indulge in the classic fish and chips meal.
