It was okay

Not the best chips in the world and not the worst chips in the world, pretty reasonably priced and right next to the beach so we could sit and look out across the beach. Good if you're looking for some cheap eats, they also do pizza, kid meals and ice cream.

Took four people and we all had fish and chips and starters. The prawn and crap was ok. Too much sauce and not enough crab. The fish and chip were good but should have been better. The chips are ok. But too big. That maybe a taste thing but just too fat. The package tartar sauce is beneath this place... More

Had not been for a year and we're both so impressed at new interior. Mackays is immaculately clean inside and out. Service was prompt, helpful and perfectly precise, excellent. The home - cured roll mops were super fresh and nicely balanced, huge lavish salad, fresh and varied, spot on. Am in good business so am very fussy. Partner had a... More

I was in Eyemouth yesterday (Sunday) and thought i would try this chip shop for a change, however don't think i will return. The young girl with the blond hair is clearly not employed for her people skills. Not a smile nor a thank you or any sort of welcome or goodbye, surely even working in a chippy manners still...

Considering that it is a fish and chip shop the fish was not as good as expected. Batter was very greasy and I am not convinced that it was Haddock as ordered

Ordered fish and chips to take away Monday afternoon after walking from Coldingham to Eyemouth. They were dripping in grease to the point you had to put the fish on the paper wrapping in order for it to soak up the fat. Dusgusting. Wont want to eat another fish super in a long time. And not the cheapest either.....

Good for a take away and cakes are good if sitting in too. View is lovely if you can get a seat at the window. Agree with previous comments about rude waitress though.
