Had lunch here during a trip to Truro. My son had the sea food platter. It was enormous. I had the fish and chips which was also great. The staff was fantastic. The service was fast and the food was wonderful. I can see why they are number one in Truro.

Not only is the food fantastic at this restaurant but the employee's make you feel at home. I've never been greeted and catered to in such a great way at any other restaurant. Walking out with a smile on my face was the best part of my whole week!

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

We had 2 piece fish and chips and the meal was excellent. The fries were nice and crispy and fish cooked to perfection.

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.
