I don't know how they have all these awards for best fish and chips etc! Absolute garbage! Wouldn't feed it to my dog! And the service was terrible also.

They claim they have the best fish n' chips in Nova Scotia and I'd argue that they have a case. The fish was fresh and very delicious. Portions were plenty and the fries were nice and crispy as well. The waiter was very nice and the restaurant itself is decorated very well to give you that fisherman's feel. If anyone... More

Although I have not really tried anything else but the Fish & Chips at this location, from the popularity of the restaurant, I would feel that the rest of the meals would be good as well. This establishment has been a mainstay for many years with the "Fish & Chips" as the most well know product. The fish is fresh... More

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
