Snapper on the Lake and at Jamison

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 at Jamison 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.

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

Snapper on the Lake
Great location on the lake, with outdoor facilities to watch the sailboats. Great for families, and kids can enjoy running around. Food is good, especially the fish and chips washed down with a beer.

Snapper at Jamison
The battered fish is lovely and light, and the batter is just so dreamy and not thick like in other places. The chips are fresh and crispy while not being overcooked. The crumbed prawns are just so delicious and tasty. The serves of the fish are so good and you really know you have had a good feed at a fantastic value price. Would (and do) recommend this to everyone.
