My British partner loved the fish and chips. Best we could find in bantry. Being American I didn’t appreciate as much. Interesting decor: seemed quite modern and fresh for serving a lot of fried food. No alcohol. A lot of folks got to-go to take...More

Stopped by quickly to get a take away, I found it below average for the reviews I read on here. Fish was over cooked and not fresh!! Not impressed with it at all I should’ve stayed going.

Wrong location 😎

After all the positive reviews here we had to give it a try and we were not disappointed! Wharton is the yellow truck just around the corner at the top of Main Street. It’s basically in a parking lot. But that truck is immaculately clean,...More

The most amazing fish and chips, I mean the quality you'd find in a restaurant or good quality gastro pub from a roadside van. Crispy batter, the tastiest chips and not a hint of grease. The van was spotlessly clean and the staff warm and...More

"Kenmare, in Co Kerry, has its unfair share of places to eat, but you'll miss one of its finest attractions if you confine yourself to the restaurants that feature in guide books. Wharton's Traditional Fish & Chips, in the town centre, is a gem. My cod was encased in the finest, lightest batter, into which crushed black peppercorns had been incorporated. It was so fresh I swear I saw it twitch as it hit the oil. The chips are hand-cut from potatoes that are, amazingly, chosen for their "fryability". And they have cider vinegar if you fancy a change from the stuff you usually get in chippers..." Tom Doorley (Irish Times)
