To watch how the Chef manages to cook such amazing food for so many people in such a tiny space is amazing, and you will be watching him cook because there is nearly always a queue for food. You can't book here so the wait is inevitable but worth it. There's plenty to watch in this quaint little cove so the time passes quickly. Eat either inside a small shack, under the roof on the patio or be brave and take to the deck-chairs on the beach!

We’d been dying to go to Riley’s Fish Shack and today was the day it happened! We managed to time it well so the wait was only about 20 minutes, during which we were eyeing the amazing lobsters and what I think were tasty looking empanadas on other people’s tables...as well as the lovely view of the sandy bay. The food, when it arrived, was absolutely delicious, with generous-sized portions. We had the coley and the monkfish wrap. Both came with salad and moreish garlicky potatoes, an amazing sourdough wrap and perfectly cooked fish. Thumbs up to the staff too who were friendly and on the ball. We live in bristol so won’t be back there in a hurry unfortunately...but we’ll be recommending it far and wide!

Excellent menu and selection of sustainably sourced fish and sea food, served from a beach shack located directly beneath historic Tynemouth Priory in King Edxwards bay which is quiet small and sheltered.

Situated in its own cove in the delightful town of Tynemouth tourists and locals alike will feast on the treasures within. A whole array of different fish dishes cooked on an open fire served with fresh bread and salad. Due to the freshness of the food, you should go with the expectation of having to wait upwards of 20 minutes but it’s truly worth the wait as the fresh fish was delectable. Enjoy your meal either from the conventional table within the shack or on a deckchair beside a fire pit.

Visited here with my family as have heard how good it is, we went down for breakfast and had craster kippers with poached egg and soda bread, cooked beautifully full of flavour.

The place was full when we got there and had to wait for a seat.

Was lovely looking out at the beach when enjoying your food.

We will be visiting again.

Very pleased with service and location.
