If you are looking for a great place to eat at a great price, this place will definitely be the place you want to go. Wide choices to pick from and it does have a few options for people who don't like fish. You won't regret stopping here and eating. Your plate is filled. You don't leave empty. 5 star... More

We had 2 piece fish and chips and the meal was excellent. The fries were nice and crispy and fish cooked to perfection.

The food was fantastic! The pieces of fish were really big and it was so good. Left feeling happy and a little too full. The coconut cream pie was amazing. Loved the seafood platter most of all, it's a must get for me now. The staff all seemed so warm and happy. They gave the place a real family feel.

I really enjoy Murphy's. The portions are generous, and both the fish and the chips are to my liking; the best in the area, IMHO.

The staff at this restaurant was so pleasant and happy. It made going to this restaurant worth it. Their fish and chips was out of this world. The way the batter was so crispy and light but then again melted in your mouth. It was excellent and it is very hard to explain without someone experiencing it for themselves. There... More

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat, very friendly fast service, unfortunately fish was greasy tasting, which is very unusual for Murphy's !
