Port Macquarie’s Best Cheap Eats

Scroll down to find the best cheap eats in Port Macquarie for 2018.


We haven’t seen prices like this since the 80s, but at Mike’s Seafood we’re stepping back in time. Famous for their crispy, crunchy battered fish and chips, Mike’s is a Port Mac institution – just don’t ask for the recipe, it’s a highly guarded family secret. On Tuesdays from 4.30pm buy one Fish ‘n’ Chip pack and get a second for just $2.


Is there anything more glorious than biting into a crunchy, juicy schnitty? How about when said schnitty is just $12 with chips and salad. Forget coffee cards, join the Schnitty Committee, buy seven and the eighth is free!

Not about the schnitty life? Dig into lunch specials and cheap eats including rump steak, chicken Caesar wrap or beer battered flathead for just $9.90.


Beef patty, lettuce, tomato, beetroot, onion, egg, bacon, cheese, pineapple and sauce. On a bun. For $10. This is one seriously good burger for a seriously low price, but that’s just classic Charlie’s! Add on chips and a can of soft drink for an extra $3.50 and you’re set!


No matter the day or your cheeky pub meal preference, Tacking Point Tavern has a special with your name on it. Get stuck into bang up barramundi on Mondays, schnitzel on Tuesdays, mouth-watering rump steak on Wednesdays, spicy pork ribs on Thursday and pizzas on Sundays, all for under $20. Tack on a couple of beers and you’ve got week night dinners sorted with Port Macquarie’s best cheap eats!


Where would we be without the humble bowl-o? Always good for a bargain, tuck into a schnitty and schooner on Tuesdays for $20, or a steak and schooner for $20 on Sundays. Call your mates together and commandeer a couple of lanes whilst you’re there, drinking beers in the sun counts as exercise, right?


With 15 $15 specials every day, $10 daily specials AND 2 for 1 meal deals on Thursday nights – we may never leave Lake Cathie Tavern! Swing by on Friday night for the community meat raffle and you could be living like a king for WEEKS.


Don’t feel like cooking? No stress! At Off The Hook you’re just that, with daily deals including $8.50 fish and chips for one, or salt and pepper squid for $7.


Swing by Town Green Inn for their famous Sunday session! Gather the gang, sip on cocktails and craft beers whilst you dig into delicious homemade, wood fired pizzas. Best of all? Buy any pizza and receive your second pizza for just $10 – we think that deserves another round!

There are also $16 daily lunch specials including grilled barramundi, panko chicken schnitzel and classic pub pie of the day.


Who wouldn’t want a pizza this? Port Macquarie’s favourite Bel Air is pumping out some seriously saucy pies, with most of the large sizes coming under $20. Marinate in the marinara with prawns, clams and garlic or spice it up with the Messicana, ham, pepperoni, capsicum and chilli. Sweet tooth? Get around a Nutella or mango pizza for $15!


Whether you’re currently a student, a past student, or just once considered being a student – the Burger Rebellion want to feed you $10 cheeseburgers and $5 Corona Cervezas every Wednesday night! Grab your mates and lead the dinner rebellion at Port Macquarie’s best destination for cheap eats!
