At a family farewell party, the restaurant was very accommodation with a constant change in numbers for the reservation. Server was very nice and very understanding with the changing situation.

We have been visiting Roadside Willie's for lunch several times a year for the past several years. We used to think that the fish and chips were the best we had ever had in Truro, despite a claim to that effect from another local restaurant. However, the last two visits have been disappointing. Perhaps a new cook? The second last... More

We had the fish and chips which was really good. The waitress was very helpful and friendly. The restaurant was nice and close the B&B that were staying at.

This huge piece of fish is lightly breaded, crisp and delish! You can have a side salad if you don't feel like filling up on French fries,

If one is being honest, Roadside Willies really doesn't look like a bar, smokehouse or restaurant. Situated as part of the local bowling alley, it really doesn't look like much from the road and signage isn't great. The ambiance inside isn't much better with small windows, dark interior and tables, no booths, but we decided to stay anyways given that... More

Based on the reviews on tripadvisor, I decided to go there with my parents. Mom had the best fish and chips. I had the shrimp fettuccini Alfredo. OMG, the shrimps were awesome. My dad had the huge hamburger (forgot the name...sorry,!) and the meat was fresh. The desserts were very good. The restaurant is located a bit far and was... More

Great food with very generous proportions. There's a good selection of beers on tap and the food menu is extensive. The smoked ribs are highly recommended. The restaurant is spacious, well decorated and has good ambient music and lighting. The service was top dollar. I will definitely return.

Have been going to Willies for 7-8 years and have always left satisfied. Good value for money - a great little neighborhood restaurant. Try the fish and chips, it is great.

What a wonderful experience! Had a great time from the moment we walked in until we departed. The atmosphere is very welcoming & relaxing. Our food tasted absolutely delicious; the servings were generous & very nicely presented. Our hostess/waitress was pleasant & accommodating. We were fortunate to meet the proprietor & had a very enjoyable chat & visit with him...... More

I still get emails from Roadside Willies and my biggest regret is that I never ate here. All my NS friends love it and I never got the chance. It will be first on my list when I am back for a visit!!!
