“Great fish and chips”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Murphy's is one of our favourite places to eat. My favorite is their pan friend haddock and chowder while my husband always loves their fish and chips. Don't leave without having a piece of their coconut cream pie.

“Murphy's Fish and Chips Eatery”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

When you advertise, and have received reviews, and glorify a 5 star rating for your fish and chips, patrons have great expectations

I just could not believe that the fries were frozen and had the cardboard taste of cheaper restaurants The fish was acceptable, but only acceptable, but was not 5 star as advertised. The service was good but the whole experience was similar to cafeteria style, or mess style, one large room and not much thought to decor,and the server had far too many tables to attend, and I will not return

I telephoned to express my disappointment as I am a local; or, would be a repeat patron, and although my comments, I thought were constructive were ignored Perhaps I should not have telephoned Truro but was referred to the Truro Murpheys, from the Pictou Murpheys to express my disappointmentand speak to the owner long distance from Westville to Truro to speak to management about my disappointment, but I received absolutely no satisfaction regarding my dinner at Pictou Murphy's Fish and Chips, which happened on my occasion to be my birthday. It does not surprise me that the Pictou County Murphy's closed Perhaps some day I will try the Murphy's in Truro, but then again I may not

“THE BEST FISH AND CHIPS EVER !!!!!”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

This restaurant is only open seasonally in Pictou, unfortunately. I go to the one in Truro when passing through , tho' , to get my "FIX"! I always order the fish and chips because the fish is GREAT...nice portion size and wonderfully crispy with no greasy residue at all. And FRESH-always! They are not licensed (sadly) and close early, so go for lunch. Prices are reasonable and service quick and friendly. There's a reason they are the # one F&C place around! KUDOS!
