This place is a brilliant, old fashioned chippy. The fish is really fresh, the batter crisp and everything is cooked once ordered - they don't have pre-cooked fish sitting there drying out like lots of English fish and chips places - you may have to wait a little longer but it is well worth the wait. Lovely staff and good... More

Whilst visiting the IOM I needed to rekindle my childhood memories of fish and chips for dinner. I was staying nearby and one night I stopped in to pick up my treat and treat it was. Well cooked, good batter and great chips with lots of vinegar and salt, yummy. Next time I'm on the Island I shall have another... More

As a regular visitor to IOM I always make sure I have a visit to Port Jack chippy. Always quick service food is always up to a high standard staff are always pleasant. Great competition on the island in the food business but this place is at the top of its game very consistent well worth a visit.

This was quite empty in January but there was a deal for two fish and chip meals. We asked for the chips to be we'll done and they were! Huge portion which I should have stopped eating but enjoyed it too much. Nice service. Of course you have to get your own knife and fork etc but it is a... More

Our dining experience at Port Jack Chippy was decided upon at the last minute as we were staying virtually right next to it in Onchan. Not sure what to expect, we found a table easily - possibly due to the fact that they were just about to close although he night was fairly young. We were greeted nicely by the... More

This is the chippy we use most often. When going for the ferry off the Isle of Man on an evening we sometimes eat in here at teatime on the way. Otherwise, it offers great fish and chips to take away at lunchtimes and through to the evening. On a sunny day it is lovely to get something from here... More

This is a first class fish and chip shop. The staff are helpful and always smiling. You can buy food and eat in or take across the road and sit and enjoy the beautiful view of the Irish Sea whilst eating. A real treat.

It was the first place I was taken to on IOM, and it was fantastic. My partner who is from Onchan have always been going there since he he was a young boy. The Fish n Chips were really really nice. I don't know what to think about the mushy peas, but I guess it is an acquired taste. I... More

It's a fish & chip shop with both take away and eat-in. We ate in. The fish was a little small in size but well cooked and chips and mushy peas were tasty and in good quantity. The place overlooks the seafront of Douglas, with panoramic views. I'd be happy to visit again for fish and chips.
