Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Mackays was absolutely the best fish and chips I had tasted in years. The portions were very generous, and the menu was surprisingly wide-ranging too.

Been a few times on our stay in Eyemouth, ice creams are lovely and great flavours. They were generous when a seagull snatched my daughter's from outside and they replaced without charge. Fish and chips good and everyone friendly. Thanks

Had our lunch here and we both had the fish and chips. My portion was huge and I really struggled to eat it. Very tasty fish indeed. Not too expensive at all! Very reasonable. Great views of boats coming into harbour. The woman who served...us was so so friendly!! We will be back.More

I can't understand the bad reviews but there are always some miserable difficult to please people around. I found McKays excellent. Fish and chip absolutely delicious. Service excellent and cleanliness of the restaurant 1st class. Had a very enjoyable meal. So good I have booked...a family meal there for my 80th birthday.More

The prices are too expensive and the fish was not very tasty. They don’t have scraps/batter either! Would not return or recommend.

Fish and chips is my favourite meal of all time so I am delighted to say that I will be back many times to have it again here. This was close to the best I have ever had.

Didn't realise we had to be waited to be seated (the sign us round a corner on a wall) and the way we were spoken to was, quite frankly, disgusting. We had a tea, which was stewed. We would have left but our little boy...was desperate for an ice cream. Sort your attitude, lots of reviews on here say how rude staff are. You are doing yourself out of business as we would have bought more food if staff had been friendly. It did seem like they were only nice with people they knew. Definitely would not recommend any part of it.More

Something to be aware of is that the chips are cooked in beef dripping (this isn't signposted) so disappointing for vegetarians.

Waited for over 30 mins for food. Staff very unfriendly. Got back to caravan with 5 meals. After about 5 mins all meals went in the bin. Overpriced horrible food.

This is the first time this week we managed to get a inside table as during covid it was always busy when we went. We had lovely friendly service my husband had fish and chips and I had haggis and chips. Both meals were lovely...and not greasey and the portions were big we couldn't finish our meals. It was a pity I didn't have room for a ice cream. There's always next yearMore
