Pier One Wallaroo is located close to the Wallaroo Jetty. Drive along Jetty Road leading away from Wallaroo town centre, until you pass the Heritage Drive turn off. You will then see the car park for Pier One Restaurant on the right, the jetty straight ahead and the foreshore walk to the left.

The restaurant offers take away and alfresco dining, with "Basic Fish and chips" starting from $8.95. I ordered this pack and there were enough chips to share with a friend, along with one fish and small aioli dip sachet. Adding a potato cake, pineapple fritter and two drinks cost my friend and I less than twenty dollars between us. More exotic sea food is also available. If you do not feel like sea food, I think I also saw chicken and hot-dogs on the menu.

Pier One Wallaroo is closed Mondays, but lists its opening hours as 11:00 am to 3:00 pm Tuesday to Thursday, 11:00 am to 6:00 pm Friday and Saturday; and 11:00am to 3:00pm Sunday on Facebook. I have been there later in the evening, but that may have been during holiday peak season or under other management.

After dining at the restaurant, we walked out on the jetty, which has been cleared and repaired since the recent storm damage. The wind was brisk and the sun was warm but pleasant. Paving along the foreshore features decorative tiling and mini jetties where you can sit to watch the water. Fishing is permitted in certain areas.

Your Comment
Wallaroo has progressed quite a bit over the last few years and is now a top place to visit.The restaurant you speak of has been around for a long time and is in a prime position.I have dined there a few times over a long period of time and naturally one goes for the fish,chips and salads which have always been sea fresh.The port is a top blue crab area,yet I have never seen these on the menu..pity,because they are my favourite seafood.The ferry service is expected to recommence soon,which we hope will be well patronized...ideal if you are wanting to drive to Pt.Lincoln...although the ferry does not take you there..just reduces your driving time through Pt.Augusta.The swimming pool has now gone due to the recent storms,but a pontoon style pool will soon be ready to use,which will be close to the jetty.
