We used to go here regularly when Margolians was in Truro and we always looked forward to fresh large portions. the last two times we have visited we got very small pieces and they were very greasy and were surprised. The fish was fresh, which it should be given our location and access to haddock. Also the last time we... More

If you are looking for a great place to eat at a great price, this place will definitely be the place you want to go. Wide choices to pick from and it does have a few options for people who don't like fish. You won't regret stopping here and eating. Your plate is filled. You don't leave empty. 5 star... More

The food was fantastic! The pieces of fish were really big and it was so good. Left feeling happy and a little too full. The coconut cream pie was amazing. Loved the seafood platter most of all, it's a must get for me now. The staff all seemed so warm and happy. They gave the place a real family feel.

I really enjoy Murphy's. The portions are generous, and both the fish and the chips are to my liking; the best in the area, IMHO.

The staff at this restaurant was so pleasant and happy. It made going to this restaurant worth it. Their fish and chips was out of this world. The way the batter was so crispy and light but then again melted in your mouth. It was excellent and it is very hard to explain without someone experiencing it for themselves. There... More
