Unfortunately, three of the four items we chose to order were sold out. I expected more of a dining experience, however, it was more like 'pub grub'.

Realize there was a scaled down menu because you’re not that busy.

Service was fine, but the restaurant has really gone down hill. There’s a lot of construction going on, but it doesn’t excuse the restaurant from becoming run down and going through the motions. Really poor experience. Won’t be going back.

The location is amazing with fantastic views of Georges Island the Halifax Harbour. The food and service are excellent. COVID and construction on Queens Marque is not helping Murphy's business so please go.....it's well worth it!

Menu was very very limited, but that is understandable due to the current covid situation. Food was decent. Sat on the 'patio' and felt very 'on the water' which was exactly what we were looking for, for our afternoon in Halifax.

Menu only had 8 items on it. Food wasn’t great for the price. Didn’t have ranch didn’t have gravy didn’t have etc. Multiple people at our table of 9 ordered the wings and they were HORRIBLE overcooked and sauce was very very bad. Service was ok, nothing to write home about.

Arrived around 1820 with my son and two granddaughters .Seated and waitress said she would be right back with water.25 minutes later still no water or did she come back to check . There four other tables with customers who were either nearly finished or eating. A customer was seated just after us and was served immediately. We left at 1850 and enjoyed a fabulous meal at The Old Triangle . Service there was amazing.
I was very disappointed with the way things went at your establishment.
Definitely won't be back or recommend .

Our group of Friends all went on the deep sea fishing tour and then went up for a meal afterwards, the tour was fabulous and the staff and food when we came up to eat were fantastic.

Thanks so much

Amazing Fish and Chips ,great view! Lack of the local fave's Alexander Keith's products was our group's only complaint!
If you want to entice more locals add those Ales!!

They were out of more than half of the menu items. Service was extremely slow even though the restaurant only had a handful of tables occupied. Appreciated they comped the main course due to the excessive wait time; however, even though it was free it still didn’t taste great

I’d have to rate my experience as poor because when my party showed up on Tuesday, your restaurant was closed. Shouldn’t have been able to a reservation in a closed day. Had to move my party to another restaurant.

While the food was great, the service was not so great. There was a very large party using the covered patio space. We would have liked to dine under the covered patio but unfortunately there was no way we could have known about the reservation that night. Our server was preoccupied with the large party and unfortunately we were forgotten.

Fantastic food, great views and lovely service. Try and get on the patio if you can, it adds to the experience.
