Mariner Place, Yarralumla

Fresh fish and chips and fantastic views

Situated on Lake Burley Griffin, Snapper on the Lake is the Canberra Southern Cross Yacht Club’s fish and chip shop. Voted by locals as Canberra’s best fish and chippery, Snapper on the Lake offers fresh fish and chips along with tranquil lake views and a relaxed family atmosphere.

We are delighted to announce that Canberra’s best fish and chips are now available northside, with Snapper in the Courtyard now open at Southern Cross Jamison.

The menu features market fresh grilled or battered fish and chips, as well as the signature crumbed snapper and chips. Family packs and kid sized ‘whipper snapper’ meals are also available. We also serve great Lonsdale Street Roasters coffee plus a range of soft drinks, Emma and Tom’s juices, and at Snapper on the Lake, local and imported beers, and Australian wines.

Bookings and pre-orders are not available at Snapper.

We feature live music every Saturday, Sunday and on public holidays throughout Summer at Snapper on the Lake.

Just left Snapper On The Lake after a perfect lunch. One of the best fish and chips around. The staff is friendly, the food is great and the location can’t be beaten.
