Scarborough sea front - for fish and chips you have a year-round captive audience, and the Golden Grid has probably THE prime location for serving this great British dish. Yet, the food was simply awful. It's a fish and chips restaurant! How can you get fish and chips so wrong?!....especially when it's all you do! The fish: sitting in a... More

Great all round traditional sea front Fish and Chip restaurant. AND CLEAN! Staff in neat uniforms' too. [Even if rather dated.] But everything done well, particularly the food. Add in the very affordable prices, no reasons not to go inside.

Nice food, proper fish and chips but also all kinds of other seafood and plenty for those who want to avoid fish altogether! Fish was lovely dark crispy batter with dark golden fries. I had the fish pie which was lovely. Small drinks selection but something for everyone including a few ales. Fast service, friendly staff what more can you... More

We didn't know that there was an upstairs until the waiter at the door suggested that we should go up. A window seat gave us a great view of the harbour. The Haddock and Chips were amazing, so fresh and tasty. Shame that the bread and butter was actually bread and marge. You can order a portion of mushy peas... More

I don't normally complain and always expect what I pay for, got the small fish and chips which was £6.95, the fish was nice but the chips were really scabby. We did complain and they reduced the cost, but still if this was my restaurant I would not have sent a plate out with chips that's looked like that!!

Not the first time we have visited this restaurant and was satisfied with the meal overall. Whilst it is true I have tasted better fish and chips my partner stated that her fish pie was very nice indeed. The crunch was the apple pie and custard for desert. Very nice indeed. Friendly staff and a nice view from upstairs made... More

Called here for lunch on Thursday 2nd March. It was possible the worst fish and chips I've ever had. The fish was over cooked and didn't taste like fresh fish -very dry and very thin not what you expect for £13.95 and that was the large cod!The chips were very small and looked like the bits from the bottom of...
