Not so easy to find, but Truro is complicated. Nautical decor. Huge portions, friendly people, really first-rate fish and chips.

Nicely cooked fried fish and chips - Not too much batter and not overly greasy (but it is fish and chips). Highly recommended if you are looking for fish and chips.

I honestly found the taste of the food excellent however if you are a slower eater. The grease settles on your plate and turns white and I found it got a film in my mouth from the grease. I ate there several times and it was that way every time. If I was to return I would order something small... More

Brought some family from out of town here for supper as they wanted some delicious fresh fish. Everyone was very pleased with what they ordered. The service was very friendly. A great overall experience for not just out of town erst, but the locals too ☺

I returned here for a second visit and am still impressed with the fish and chips. SO good!! Everyone around us ordered fish and chips. I don't think I saw anything else get served to tables. That sure tells you something. Get the fish and chips!! You won't be disappointed.

This is a good place to eat! Friends were here a couple years ago on a trip through NS and said we wouldn't be disappointed. Clean, friendly, comfortable, reasonable price, large portions.

Fish was excellent. The chips were just ordinary. Service was superb. Attentive and quick. All members of our group had the same thing so cannot comment on other menu items.

After hearing how great the fish and chips were, we were disappointed that the fries were not fresh-cut. The fish was pretty good, had better at the seafood shack on the wharf in Halifax though. Had to ask for lemon which should be automatic.
