The Fish & Chips are usually really good. I've rated Wackers as average because. The Mushy Peas are not the best & The Staff are always miserable looking, I can't recall ever seeing a smile there. They don't do Senior Citizen Rates. I once ordered a Childs Meal for my mother who is in her 90s as it would be... More

Some of the best fish and chips we have ever had, batter light and crispy and cod very white and fresh. Lovely chips, just as they should be. This is a very large, clean and modern restaurant. The service was very good from friendly staff. Can't fault Wackers, and would definitely return if we visit Scarborough again.

I visited here a few days ago, ordered small haddock, chips and mushy peas. The haddock was perfectly fried, batter was scrumptious, peas were radioactive, as mushy peas should be. Customer service was 100%, and place was spotless. I love the layout and decor, I will definitely recommend this restaurant.

A large restaurant with heaps of seating, it must get busy at times as there is even a waiting area with seats. You order your food at the main counter and they deliver the food direct to your table. The portion sizes are large and a medium sized fish will be big enough for most people. Dont forget the mushy... More

Visited with family members had medium cod and chips. Asked for scaps ( fried batter pieces from fish) Portion was 'large' for a medium order and well cooked. Crispy Batter dry and not oily. Good fresh white flesh - you don't get better tasting fish as local caught. Complimented with mushy peas, tea and bread and butter. Service was about... More

We visited Scarborough to celebrate the new year and called into wackers on our first day. We both had small fish and chips, peas, bread and butter and tea. The meal was lovely. We called again on our last day, and once again we had the same meal and once again it was lovely. The only downside was that the... More

Ordered haddock and chips as a special treat, had not had any for a long time. Found a long black hair in the batter on my fish. Was not impressed and would now go elsewhere.

I just don't get some of these reviewers going on about the staff smiling or being grumpy, I get good fish and chips every time at this eaterie and if people are grumpy or smiling like a village idiot is no concern to me, just keep serving good grub. By the way they where not grumpy when we went December... More
