This restaurant used to be really nice with really good food. We have visited numerous times before but never again!!! My wife ordered the Scarborough smokie and I ordered Fish and chips with bread and butter. Now I don't like butter but unfortunately in restaurant 55 bread with out butter is unavailable for some reason. The Fish was soggy and... More

Food was of a good standard, view over beach great and the service was good . There were plenty of other more exciting options on the menu if that's what you... More

My family and I used to look forward to visiting Restaurant 55 when visiting Scarborough - usually 2-3 times per year. We used to recommend the place to family and friends. They'll never be graced with our presence again after today's experience. No longer is the food top quality like it used to be. The chips were badly burnt (my... More

We came upon this lovely restaurant after searching for a dog friendly place in the rain! Dogs can only come in with their family in the foyer but there are at least 3 nice tables. We had the lobster roll (delicious!) and the chicken/bacon roll. Both served with chips and a delicious peppers salad. Really nice food in a nice... More

This restaurant is definitely on my list during my next visit to Scarborough after the disappointing meals we had in the Golden Grid. If only we had visited Restaurant 55 in the first place!! Good food, great service from the waitresses who are always on hand.

Stopped for a late lunch. Fantastic views and good simple food with prompt service. Really loved the seafood chowder.....I had a bowl, not the cup!

We was visiting Scarborough and was looking for somewhere to eat. Saw the sign that said dog friendly and saw that the views were amazing. When we got in we couldn't sit and enjoy the views as we were told to sit near the door. Very dark and cold. I think they should extend the dog friendly part as all... More

Advertised as fish fresh from the sea, and it was. Shame about the service should have known as we were the only customers. Haddock and chips £10 a head. Did not eat, batter was under cooked and the chips inedible. Sorry but you need the feedback.

Thank Activeseniors
