The Shillelagh House is one of my stops when I come to town. I always get the whole fried clams. I don't know what happened. Not only were they mostly strips, the ones that were whole were very small. Lots of batter though! We ordered take out and part of the combo was missing. It was over $40.00 for two... More

Haven't been here in few years but it is still as good as ever. Nice to not have to eat at a chain type place. Easy off & on highway when you are passing through.

If you love fish and home fries this is where the local people go. Wonderful food, great appetizers and great servers. Just a minute off the trans Canada highway. Come hungry and enjoy the best fish and chips ever

We called in on way to Annapolis royal. Truro seems to have lots of chain eating places and shillelagh house seemed to be one of the few independents. We had a simple but well made salad, haddock and fries and were thoroughly satisfied. Well recommend ed.

Great, well cooked fish, large pieces. Clean, tidy, service was fantastic. Excellent, crunchy, fresh salad with dressing on the side (not too much, like some places). Really good value. Top notch sweet potato fries, good size portions. Very good roadside restaurant, highly recommend.
