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.

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.
