Family of four ate here today, we spent €37 on scampi and chips and threw all in the bin outside. Scampi was frozen processed muck but costed the same as fresh fish n chips that their neighbours charge, unfortunately they were closed. I wouldn’t be...posting here if they didn’t charge so much, very disappointing!More

My partner and I had 2 absolutely awful fish and chips...€25 bill for 2 day old, reheated chips with soggy fish...what a rip-off!! Every table I saw had left plates of pale, inedible produce, for the staff to clear up (or give to someone else)!!...Do yourselves a favour and look elsewhere!! Would give it no star if the system would allow!!More

Sea Shack was closed local recommended Mellys. Worst fish and chips I've ever had in my life. Burnt dried out fish and chips that were fried a day or two days before. Awful.

We called in for 3 fish suppers with a drink each and it came to nearly €40. The food is served in boxes and plastic knives and forks are given (I can only assume this is because they couldn’t be bother to wash up) When...dealing with the general public you do expect a certain level of people skills which I just did not see. I asked for a bottle of coke and Fanta They girl gave me a can of coke and a bottle of Fanta with no glasses. I explained that I had asked and paid for a bottle of coke I asked if we could have glasses as well please with ice. Two glasses came down with no ice and my bottle of coke. At all times I was not once greeted with manners nor personality. I was very disappointed with the experience and I think attention to detail and customer care are required.More

Had fish and chips to takeaway and the food was awful. Batter burned, fish overlooked and chips undercooked. Most of the food went in the bin.
