While those new pints poured straightforwardly from tank to tap and portside sees are a significant drawcard, the eatery certainly stands its ground. Snatch a 16 ounces and start things off with one-hand nibbles like their Fremantle lobster roll or a threesome of tacos. Then move gradually up to bigger plates like Rottnest Island swordfish schnitzel with caviar bearnaise, Harvey hamburger striploin or Single Fin battered nearby fried fish and French fries.
