“no bathroom”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

You can't be sending your customers to other stores or to the gas station across the highway to use their bathrooms and you have to have a place to wash your hands before eating. I've heard the food is wonderful. Once it was decent once it wasn't. I would try it again for take out only but this bathroom no thing is amazing to me.

“Take Out ONLY”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

The fish and chips have really improved, alas, NO BATHROOM! So no hand washing either. We were told to use the washroom facilities across the street at the gas station we took turns so we didn't lose our table. Prices have increased as well so it gets a little pricey if you take guests. I enjoy their food, however it will be strictly take out in the future.

“Great Food - at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Great little place. Simple surroundings with the value on the food & prices, rather than decor. Large portions of fish & chips...cooked to perfection, Clean, friendly service a place worth visiting.

“Brit-style done right!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

I shared a "Captain's Special" with my g/f at Yorky's... three pieces of fish with fries and 'slaw. At around $21 it was the perfect lunch for two. I'm no Brit-style fish n' chip expert but this plate really shines compared to others I've tried on the island. The fries especially were uncommonly fresh-tasting and lightly golden brown. The fish also light and flaky in a crispy batter. The coleslaw looked and tasted homemade. The fish could've been seasoned a bit more for my taste, but if you're a purist Yorky's does it right. The owner/operators are very attentive and seem genuinely interested in their customers and food quality. Seating is a little tight and there is the "NO washroom" issue, but otherwise it's well worth a try.

“Excellent Fish & Chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

OMG, does it get any better than this !!!
Fish & chips of the higest quality and customer service second to none
The nuggets were a mix of Halibut & Cod and were the ultimate way to taste what yorkys had to offer as far as there fish.
Chips done to perfection from raw, coleslaw fresh & dressed well.
The tarter suace was incredible.
I would pay way more than what I did for what I received.
Try the nuggets & chips......WOW, what a treat.

The place is quite small without a public bathroom but understandably so due its limited size.
The only down side to the restaurant.
