We split the seafood chowder and 2 piece fish and chips. The server had both meals split and put on two plates and bowls. The food was very good, on par with most local seafood restaurants. The decor is dated but that really does not matter to us, it as clean, great staff and good food. We used the $35... More

Food was ok. Had the Cuban sandwich which was a little small but tasted ok. Nothing wrong with it. Potato and chestnut or walnut soup was interesting. Was hot on a cold day so I enjoyed it. Prices in line with a hotel restaurant...a little high...but expected. Staff was nice. If you don't want to drive anywhere...you'll be ok eating... More

This is the resto in the Holiday Inn Harborview in Dartmouth. Like any hotel resto, you're a captive audience and they know it but why does it have to be that way? Out of the myriad surveys I and probably countless other business travelers have ever filled out in our lifetimes, I think the common denominator has always been to... More

We stayed two nights at the Holiday Inn and ate in here. All of the food we had was excellent, I even raved about the Caesar Salad, I don't know what the Chef had done, but boy was it good. A Caesar Salad isn't usually anything unusual but this was. My husband went with the Chowder and we have never... More

Staying at the Holiday Inn this hotel is located in you'd be surprised the difference from stepping from the hotel lobby into this restaurant. The restaurant is dated, same as the hotel, but it's like the restaurant has a switch turned on for customer service. They were pleasant, found me a place to sit to next to a plug so... More

Cafe 101 is located in the Holiday Inn Harbourview, Dartmouth. The menu had good variety, with imaginative ingredients. Also well priced, considering it is located within a hotel. Staff were friendly and efficient. The Cuban Pork Sandwich was extremely tasty and the side of seasonal salad balanced well. The other item ordered was the Spicy Beef Salad which included steak...

We tried this restaurant through groupon and we were not disappointed. The waitress immediately seated us and told us about the wine special as it was ending soon. That showed thoughtful care for the guests. Anita knew the menu and made excellent recommendations. The mussels in wine were tasty, the shrimp with the unique curry brûlée made for a great... More
