“Great Lobster Wrap!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We ate at Murphy's for lunch as part of a tour group. The lobster wrap was huge and delicious, served with a small salad with blueberry vinegrette dressing. Service was good. The restaurant has a great location on the pier in Halifax Harbor. Would definitely come here again.

“Good food bad service”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I have the Chowder which chock full of vegetables. The Hamburger was awesome. I order a Irish Coffee which was lukewarm. I sent it back back to warmed. It came back lukewarm. One of our party order the Cesar Wrap without dressing. It was served with dressing. The view on the patio was panorama but breeze.

“Great location, average food”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Sat outside on the deck and watched the boats on the water. That made the stop worth it. I had the stuffed Salmon and it was very good. Service was good.

“Never Got Served”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

I wasn't that enthralled by the limited menu choices to begin with, but thankfully I pursuaded my wife to bail after we waited seemingly forever for our server to arrive. So I can't speak for the food, but I can tell you service was non-existent.

“Please lift your game.”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This seafood restaurant was selected on its location, which was at the end of a pier in Halifax Harbour. After a good experience in a seafood restaurant a week before in the Shetland Islands we were disappointed with basically the same meal at around the same price. It just wasn't very good. The restaurant was like a production line with lots of young staff in training and we didn't like it.
With a little thought and some hard work this place could be a knockout.
