Tommy Ruff Next Level Seafood Restaurant

Tommy Ruff raises the bar on casual seafood dining with its super fresh quality seafood at affordable prices as one of the best cheap affordable quality eats in Melbourne. Their offerings range from simple fish and chips through to the dazzling Chefs Platter.

Tommy Ruff is so much more than a fish and chip shop; it is a celebration of seafood from a family that loves seafood and fishing! This is a family friendly restaurant with an extensive menu of fresh seafood. And fresh is the key! Surely one of the best fish and chips restaurants in Melbourne.

Off the back of its success in Mordialloc and Elsternwick, last month Tommy Ruff docked on Chapel Street, offering a fish bar that's all about premium seafood, back by a family of hospitality gurus. 
Fish wings, fish ceviche, superfood salads, paddle crabs, mussel pots and seafood chowder are some of the must-tries, along with Tommy's famous burgers, including the spiked southern fried barramundi, salmon burger and crab claw burger. For the indecisive, there's Tommy's impressive chef platter, bundling all of the good stuff into one generous tray of seafood heaven. 

This photo above says it all. Joy and someone who loves their job (front of house manager). There's a soul about Tommy Ruff; you feel like you're part of the family.

Select from the extensive One for All menu of shared dishes, or go for the Packs, Platters, Saucy Grills, Market Fish and more. As far as we are concerned this is next level for anyone with a fish and chips mindset.

Or if you just want simple fish and chips Tommy Ruff delivers. Check out their own brews and wines; I thought their beer was refreshing and excellent.

A modern restaurant greets the diner; it's casual not fine dining, and has a cheerful and playful as well as chic atmosphere.

Staff work tirelessly but keep their friendly and cheerful disposition; with banter flowing.

Poke! Hawaiian sushi salad in a bowl is a popular dish and example of some of the healthier style dishes.

Chefs Platter is the pinnacle. Is this the best value platter in Melbourne? Spectacular, diversified and rewarding. A platter full of fresh fish of high quality. Tommy's fish tacos, oysters, grilled fish, skewers, fish wings, prawns, calamari and chips. We had crabs and mussels added.

I have to photograph it from different angles because it's beautiful and there's so much there.
