Now really....I would have been very happy with my experience at this fish & chip place in Truro, Nova Scotia. Nice decor, pleasant service, good servers and very good fish BUT....you had to claim to be the" #1 in Canada", "world's best fish & chips", "world famous" and "English style fish & chips".....and then....you served frozen french fries. What a... More

I went with friends who come here every time they're in town. They were greeted like family. Manager/hostess/cashier chatted with everyone (most were regulars) most enthusiastically. If you're looking for efficiency you would be disappointed. The food was adequate. Not the best fish and chips I've had but not bad. Salad came with packaged dressings which I had to ask... More

Was in Truro one night for business. As there are no Mexican or Chinese buffets to go eat decided to have local food...even though I not like fried food. Murphy's Fish & Chips stood out on Yelp. And the whole town seems to know the place. Had to ask for driving directions twice and the minute I said restaurant I... More

After a long day we pulled in to Murphy's and were greeted by cheery person, Lisa, who turned ou to be our server. Even though they were closing, Lisa made a point of telling us not to rush. Our meals, poached haddock and southern fried haddock hit the spot. Neither one was overdone and my southern fried haddock was the... More

Stopped in today for the first time (for me, anyway) There were four of us. Restaurant was busy, but found a seat right away. Staff was very friendly! Two ordered fish, one ordered a Western sandwich and I ordered a hamburger platter. One thought the fish batter was light but yet there was a greasy taste to it. No complaints... More

We were driving through town on our way from NB and googled best restaurants in Truro and this place came up. Honestly the best fish and chips all of us ever had. Coleslaw was fantastic, the meal was a great value with generous portions and staff was friendly even though it was a long weekend and they were highly understaffed.... More
