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.

We have just been to the friendliest fish and chip shop ever! The staff were delightful, and the food was just great. We had the Seafood platter with an extra piece of fish and that was enough for us both. The clams and scallops were...More

After a long day of driving, in miserable weather, we stopped at Murphy's for a quick bite to eat. We settled for the fish chowder that arrived hot and loaded with lots of potato and fish; it sure hit the spot. The staff were very...More
