Murphy's

I have not been there for a while, but their food is excellent, but it is a bit pricey for me. Staff are friendly and welcoming.

If it's fish you're looking for, Murphy's is the place to go. The batter is very light, and the fish is cooked to perfection. So many restaurants over cook fish, but not Murphy's. The fish is always cooked the same no matter what time of day you visit this restaurant.

The food at Murphy's is actually pretty good - hand breaded fish, home made tartar sauce and good fries. Unfortunately, the service is consistently among the worst I have ever seen. The servers either (quite literally) snarl at you or call you Honey/Dearie/Sweetie/Darling 8 or 9 times in a 2 minute conversation !! Go for the food, try to ignore... More

Love the fish and chips. All seafood is good. Fast friendly service and great music with N.S. décor. Clams and fish chowder are two more favorites. Generous portions

This was out first time there and as soon as we entered we received such a warm welcome for a gentleman behind the counter/bar. We had heard it had good fish and chips and wanted to try it out. I had eye surgery in the local hospital that day and we were overnighting in Truro and it was the perfect... More

Travelling to the Halifax Airport, I stopped here for a meal. Was greeted as I walked in by a very friendly cashier. I was seated quickly and got my water right away from a smiling and happy waitress. I ordered a two piece fish and chips, got it without delay and was very good, large portions and crispy fries. These... More

No Heinz ketchup and vinegar in packets and tarter sauce is NOT good and you only get a tablespoon full with a $11 two piece order. Coffee cost $2.50 and you won't get a refill.
