Did not like to stay in this place and the food was just average, the source were store bought and buying any dinks from here just tasted like flavored water, perhaps the prices reflects this.

You can't day trip Scarborough without fish and chips and Wackers is the only place for me. My haddock was so white and the batter so so crispy and oil free and the chips were so sweet and tasty, cup of tea and done.

Wackers is an unassuming, no-frills, canteen-style fish and chip restaurant, popular with families and open during the day but not late in the evenings. Service is quick and efficient, and the clincher is the fish - always fresh and cooked to perfection.

Tried this restaurant after decent reviews but I don't know why. Chips were horrible, fish was ok but the quality of the food in general was very cheap. Wont be visiting again.

Great fish and chips, shame about the dirty cutlery, I think the hardest part of the waiting staffs job is to smile because none of them could seem to do it............at all. Social skills training needed.
