Warmly greated by all the staff when we entered, service was prompt and friendly. Ordered the restaurant's famous fish and chips and were not disappointed. It arrived piping hot and the serving was generous. Will definitely return and recommend to others!!

One of the best places for fish & chips in Nova Scotia, in my humble opinion. The fish is moist, flavourful and delicious; the fries are the same. The staff is outstanding ... always warm and welcoming. Always a go-to spot when we’re in Truro.

Great quality, great service, not overpriced, I had the Captains plate, or as they call it "a whale of a meal, haddock, shrimp and clams with fries, my wife had Sole and mash. Both plates more than enough, will definitely be back.

- I enjoyed their great Fish and Chips, and my wife had the Fish Burger. - Fish was great, the fries ok, my wife did not care for the bun used for her burger. - Service was top notch, very quick and waitress was attentive.

The meal was pretty bad. It was unexplainable how bad the fish was. Come on people!!! How hard is it to make a decent piece of fish? This place is number one on trip on trip advisor. I THINK NOT!!! And to add to that,...More

If you go there and not order Fish and Chips. It would be the same as going to a Pizza place and ordering a steak.
