Family day out in Eyemouth and stopped for Fish and chips from the takeaway. Freshly prepared and the best fish we have had in ages. Our server was really pleasant and chatty while we waited.

Called for a cuppa and a snack, don't know what we could have done to upset the waitress but she was very abrupt throughout our stay, didn't say a word just plonked the pot of tea and cake on our table as she passed by. She seemed ok with everybody else, but made us feel very uncomfortable (we were English?).... More

Mackays is very reliable for fish and chips. All the times we've been we have been really pleased by the quality and freshness of the fish. The staff are always pleasant and friendly. My only complaint is that the chips should be cooked a bit longer for a deeper colour and more taste.

We had a family lunch here and would recommend it in a heartbeat. The fish was very fresh and tasty. The batter crispy and not greasy. The chips- great. Garlic mushrooms and haggis- equally so. We sat in at the take-away tables, not the restaurant but this was perfect, given that it was chilly and quite windy. I can also... More

Good seaside food, fish and chips and an excellent range of fish cakes. Located on the seafront, a very clean restaurant with good service and lovely view looking out to sea.

This is a dependable restaurant with a good range of seaside fare served to a high standard. They make their own fishcakes. The views were lovely. It is unlicensed and there is a peculiar arrangement to keep the ladies toilet locked. The pizza was enormous and covered unusually thickly with cheese, a real treat! We also had fishcakes and soup... More
