The Lucky Shag, Perth

Lucky Shag Bar Perth

What is more typically Perth than sitting under the shade on a hot summer’s day, having lunch and enjoying views of the Swan River?

in Barrack Square in the CBD provides the food, the shade and the views which make the popular bar a must visit for tourists.

A good amount of inside tables, lots of outside tables, including a large area which seats 12, plenty of umbrellas to shelter from the hot sun, a refreshing drink and pub grub – what’s not to like?

I took my visiting daughter and son-in-law to The Lucky Shag after a morning’s selfie-taking at Elizabeth Quay and shopping in the malls.

My daughter and I ordered the Nasi Goreng ($24 plus $6.50 for added prawns) while my son-in-law opted for the Beef Nachos ($15). The Nasi Goreng was okay – the fried egg was exactly as it should be with a crisp white and a runny yolk and the prawns were very juicy but the dish was let down by overcooked rice and not enough spice.

The Nachos had pulled chilli beef, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, Pico de Gallo and jalapenos. My son-in-law enjoyed the dish although the top layer of corn chips was slightly burnt but couldn’t finish the huge portion and that is saying something for someone who has a very large appetite!

We also ordered a bag of chips with lime aioli and tomato sauce ($12) and we got a very large bag of chips that were exceptionally good.

Some of the menu items are expensive such as the $24 fish and chips and the $24 Margarita pizza but there are more affordable choices – lemon pepper squid with salad ($20) or snapper tacos with chipotle aioli ($17). Check out the bar’s specials. For example every Tuesday nachos and two beers are $24. The Lucky Shag also provides entertainment on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.

Staff members were friendly, efficient and pleasant – order at the bar and food is delivered, toilets were easily accessible (watch out for the one-way mirror in the men’s!) and the views were great. The Lucky Shag is a relaxing lunch choice. Parking is not easy; the nearest place is the CPP Terrace Road area off Riverside Drive. We took the train into the city and travelled back to the northern suburbs from the Elizabeth Quay train station.
