I live in the beautiful inner-city Brisbane and regularly go to restaurants with my wheelchair zooming Mother. My reviews have a focus on disabled accessibility into and around the places I visit.

The place to go if you're on a Seafood Diet
In the middle of Newstead, between the upmarket pubs and the paleo-cafes, you will find Fish's Seafood Market. If you are yearning for good old fish and chips and plenty of it, this place is for you. The serves I saw going out to the tables were huge and the cost is very reasonable.
On this particular occasion my Dad and his partner were visiting for lunch and my Dad is very much a 'fish and chips, none of that fancy stuff' kind of gentleman. Turns out that he is a Seafood Chowder kind of gentleman too, with both of us tucking into huge bowls of chowder served with fried bread. It came decorated with the most tasty prawn and mussel. The broth was thick and creamy and there were large chunks of fish, calamari and more. The chips were crunchy and the battered fish was perfect, not too oily like some places can be.

Fish and chips is not the only meal that Fish's serve. The menu board is substantial and the gourmet specials sound divine. I only wish I had spotted the Haloumi offer earlier ... maybe I will go back for that one...
Wheelchair access is good with the choice to sit inside or outside under the awnings. Main problem is the footpath area between the inside and outside isn't very wide. This area could get a little crowded if there were too many people. The billboards with the menu and specials are arranged to be viewed from the footpath which could make things a little tricky. Ordering is done from the low counter just inside the shop.
