I visited this restaurant while on an excursion through Princess Cruise line. We had a large group visit at lunch time with our choices pre-selected and phoned in before arrival. We were seated and served our food within minutes after arrival. The service was good. The lobster wrap was delicious and followed by warm apple cobbler for dessert. This restaurant is on the wharf and is a great area to walk around in or to just sit back and relax.

Part of a large gathering, we had a fixed menu / price engagement. Service was good, although there was a challenge in getting the patrons into 2 long tables, as the restaurant was set up for 3 based on an inflated view of guests.

APPETIZER
Beet Salad - a bit heavy on the dressing, but otherwise quite good

MAIN COURSE
Seafood Pasta - seafood (fish/scallops/shrimp) was good but the pasta was overdone

DESSERT
Deep Dish Apple Crumble - a bit too sweet, but tasty

My wife and I went to Murphy's On The Water the last week in September. My wjfe loved the seafood chowder. I had lobster bisque that was quite good. The service was very good and she
was friendly and knowledgeable about Halifax. We enjoyed the entire time we at Murphy's.

Perfect spot--the restaurant juts into the harbor like a dock. There's a roof and walls but on a nice day in September it was almost completely open so there was a lovely breeze off the water. The weather-worn building contrasts nicely with the tables and chairs painted a variety of primary colors. The food is good--the salads we ordered were fresh and crispy.
