Just made a another return visit to Mackays of Eyemouth. Great to have the same welcome each time I eat there, never disappointed, thanks Maggie you sure are an asset to this establishment.

Stayed in Eyemouth for a week. Local friends kept asking if I had been to MacKays for a meal. I had not, so decided I must go there. I had Fish & Chips. Everything was so fresh. I would not hesitate in going there again if ever in the area.

Well my wife and I went into this restraunt yesterday afternoon for lunch. Once again the food was top notch. Their service was second to none, we were made to feel so welcome by the waitress who was working there on her own. Thanks

We popped in for a cuppa yesterday. We had been for a long walk and before eating/drinking I needed the toilet. I needed the key code for this - a good idea as loads of people could just use the facilities in the summer when Eyemouth will be busy. In any case, I always judge an eating establishment by its...

We have been here 4 times now on our annual holiday in the area and have thoroughly enjoyed each visit. We have always had a warm welcome from the waitress and service has been excellent. The crab salad is to die for, and the fish and chips are great. We had desserts and the creme brûlée and Eton mess we're... More

We've been going to Mackay's for years, and the food has always been very good - freshly cooked to order, with big portions. It's true that there's a way to do things in Mackays - you wait until you're shown to a table, rather than just plonking yourself where you like - but we don't recognise the description of poor...
