With a love for casual, fresh seafood, South Sailor offers lunch, dinner and everything in between.  Just 150 metres from Thirroul Beach, South Sailor is a fitting spot to settle back after a day on the sand and surf. 

Our beachside address is still fondly remembered by locals as Jim’s Fish Café.  With roots dating back to 1946, the location has a strong affinity with fresh, local seafood.

With indoor & outdoor seating, a licensed bar and kids beach cubby, gather the family for a relaxed weekend lunch or head in with friends for an evening of drinks and a shared feast.  South Sailor is the perfect locale for those wanting to enjoy the Coal Coast vibe and warm welcome. 

A modern seafood experience.

The menu boasts simple, honest, seasonal food from locally sourced and sustainable suppliers.  Expect to find a contemporary seafood focussed menu with the very best that the South Coast and Australia has to offer.

The kitchen, lead by Executive Chef Graham Ette, prepares delicious seafood plates cooked to order, designed to share.  The menu is a combination of classic chip-shop fare and more worldly seafood flavours with an in-house Sushi & Poké Bar.  All of the fish is responsibly-sourced & sustainably caught, and South Sailor works closely with local suppliers to receive the best of the local prawns and oysters.


At the bar, the beverage menu is filled with the sort of wines you feel like drinking with a bucket of tiger prawns!  Beers and ciders include a premium range of creations from the South Coast.  As for the cocktails, expect to find a menu designed to compliment the flavours showcased in the food menu.
