Fodor's Expert Review Frankie's Fish & Chips
Proudly claiming to be the northernmost fish-and-chips shop in Britain, this "chipper" is also the best of its kind on the islands. The combination of superfresh seafood—skate wings, squid, and crab legs—and light and crispy batter (including a gluten-free option) means Frankie's is everything a chip shop could be. Try the local mussels: you won't find any that are fatter or juicier in the United Kingdom. Sit on the deck or in the lovely dining room with views toward Busta Voe. The restaurant closes at 8 pm.
