By far the best fish and chips in the area. This is our only destination when we have the craving. Great prices, generous serves and lovely, busy staff. If you are heading over on a weekend get in early, very busy but well worth the wait.

Had lunch here after spending some time on the beach. The fish had the crispiest batter and chips complimented it very well too. Staff were very friendly.

We ordered fish and chips. It was fresh. It was served in a reasonable amount of time. Is it tempura battered? No. Is it over priced? Yes. We... More

I visit the Boat Shed regularly with my family and their food keeps us coming back for more! It's definitely worth paying a smidge more than you would at your average fish and chip shop because of the quality of the food you receive. The fish is always well cooked and has a to-die-for batter, not to mention the small... More

These guys do good fish and chips. It was super fresh and fast. It's a generous Serving and the kids loved it. If you want good quality and quantity fish and chips with a nice seating area out front this is the place to go in Scarborough

I've had take-away Calamari & chips from here a few times & it's been really good. I crave it at times :-) Staff are pleasant, plenty of seating & a great place to grab fish & chips to eat in the beach.
