Traditional fish and chip restaurant, nothing flash but good quality seaside fish and chips. Staff friendly and helpful and asking for a 'standard Willy' is always good for a laugh!!

Quite clean place to eat, very helpful staff but little disappointed because they weren't sure which beer they've got lol We didn't wait long time for our food and the view on the sea is awesome especially on the top floor :-) our food was just ok..

Brisk walk around Scarborough and a visit to Willy's. Sat inside upstairs, the lady who served us was brilliant, friendly and very quick.
