The servers/hosts are very warm and friendly! We always have a great meal here. The fish and chips is great but so is everything else. The club house is huge and can be shared. Take friends and family here as a treat.

Stopped in on the way back to Sydney from Halifax, Absolutely the BEST fish I have EVER had! I had the fishermans platter which had fish, fresh deep friend clams, scallops, and shrimp. AMAZING! HUGE portions, very inexpensive! Everything was very fresh. The batter on the fish was very thin and crispy and not greasy whatsoever and the french fries... More

Please note, no liquor license. I wasn't aware of this, and went there for dinner on a hot day, anticipating a nice cold beer, only to find out they are not licensed. If this is an issue, don't go there, otherwise, I'm sure that Murphy's lifes up to its reputation.

When you walk in you feel like you have been transported onboard a ship or a fisherman's dock. The decor is pure Maritimes & so are the friendly staff. The food selection, quality & taste are... excellent, & so is the price. Located steps from the train station so don't miss out on this hidden pearl.

Stop into Murphy's on our way out to Fredericton for some local fish and chips. Service was great with all the servers chatting and smiling. The atmosphere was welcoming and the food was fantastic. Some of the best fish and chips I have had. Great value for the money.

We stopped here last week for the first time on a trip from Hali to Sydney. We both had fish and chips - and it was fantastic. Among the best fish and chips meals I ever had. For me the fish was especially memorable, with a really light super-crispy batter, no grease, and terrific flavour. Chips were good but not... More
