My favorite place to stop for Fish and Chips take away whilst traveling in Co. Donegal, even with a queue, your order is filled in no time, my friends in nearby Kilcar love the Calamari and the chowder, I now travel with a food storage...container to keep the food hot.More

The title says it all, excellent fish and chips. The portions were generous and meaty, we struggled to finish them! Smiley and friendly service and worth the wait!

We tried a single portion of calamari and scampi and chips here. The scampi and chips were absolutely delicious, so tasty. The calamari was cooked perfect but, unfortunately was quite greasy so got very sickly towards the end and we couldn't finish them. Would definitely...go back and try the scampi though, that was perfect!More

Food mediocre. Frozen fries, not fresh chips. A wee bit over priced. Staff touching face and hair when serving.

This has to be the best take away I have ever eaten. The scampi is to die for. Well done everyone involved.

Wonderful fish and chips shack on the seafront in Killybegs. Definitely go for the mixed box with cod, haddock, scampi (proper prawns in a light batter) and calamari. Excellent

We had the large fish and chips. It was haddock, it just said fish but I was hoping it would be cod, a seafood box, which did contain some cod. While the fish and seafood was lovely the chips were frozen jobs, its a pity...because some proper chipper chips and it would have been outstanding. We got stung with frozen chips elsewhere the day before, how hard is it to do proper chips! Is it a lost art in donegal?More

Staff very friendly, young girl & slightly older lady working. Ordered large fish (haddock) and scampi both with chips. Large fish was really fresh and lovely. Scampi was nice too, but would personally go for the large fish. The chips were disappointing, not chipper chips,...more like oven chips. If they could sort the chips out and have real chipper chips or even just nicer chips, it would be 5 star.More

All I can say about this shack is the fish is fresh and delicious, perfectly battered. The queue was a clear sign as to the quality. Eating out in the fresh air on the pier adds to the whole experience. Truly a great place for...a pitstop.More

Hi John G. This is for Ericmcmd, I assume? I'm the owner of the seafood shack. I just need to try and figure out how to use tripadvisor. I would like to respond to his review...! Mairead.
