Great Food and Service

This place has an wonderful patio that over looks the waterfront from a roof top terrace. The place is well laid out and has some good music. The food I would recommend the Nachos with extra chicken and it is enough for 2 to share.

The Red Stag doesn't life up to its founders high standards on the beer production side, and might be seeing red if he ate there today. Our waitress was okay but obviously bored to distraction and it showed, the food was okay, overpriced for the portion size and quality, much better atmosphere and much better food and service at other...

This tavern is in a nice setting - in the Alexander Keith's Bldg. , on Lower Water Street , Halifax . It has a very comfortable indoor environment and a roof top patio with a great view of Halifax Harbour . The food - mediocre at best ! I had a small peperoni pizza - slightly burnt with teeth breaking... More

We were out enjoying the waterfront and the Keith's brewery tour so decided to stop. It's inside the same building as the tour so if you are looking for another drink then it's easy to find. I would say the food is mostly simple bar or pub style items, not bad but not anything special. We had a few more... More

Enjoyed a good lunch during a recent visit to Halifax. The roof top patio was a bit windy but well worth it. Food was good.

THE best fish and chips I've ever had! The portions are generous and batter was so delicious I kept raving about it. I was even willing to leave some fish uneaten rather than leave the batter.

Couldn't keep away from this place (as well as their Lower Deck location), as it was so friendly, atmospheric and had great beer to taste. Would recommend a visit here, as well as going on the Alexander Keith Brewery tour (in which the Red Stag is located).

Based on what I had heard, I was expecting better. The menu said "best fish and chips". The fish was very good - and the portions are very large. The tarter sauce served was spiced up a tad too much for my liking. The chips (wedges) were so-so. Wouldn't go back. Would try other places along the waterfront first.

I go to The Red Stag Tavern every Wednesday for lunch. Every Wednesday I tell myself that I'll eat something different but I never do - Why mess with perfection?
