Service was excellent, food just ok. Nachos were expensive but didn't seem to have much on them- just carmalized onions, a handful of tomatoes and some banana peppers. I ordered the Lobster mac & cheese which was actually penne noodles and had so much parm I could barely eat it. Cheesecake for dessert was delicious. Would probably return but maybe... More

The atmosphere is what first grabs you when you walk in to this pub housed in one of Halifax's oldest buildings, the Alexander Keith's Brewery. The friendly, knowledgeable staff make you feel right at home. The beer is cold, the food hot, plenty and tasty. Whether you want traditional Nova Scotia seafood, a steak or a burger you can't go...

My son and I had lunch at the Red Stag yesterday. I usually order their fish and chips, which are the best around. However, this time I decided to be more adventurous and try the Bombay Chicken Pasta, which as the name suggests, is chicken and pasta in a curry/dijon sauce. The pasta was perfectly cooked al dente and the... More

We visited this tavern in January 2014 for lunch. The lobster chowder was an excellent choice. It was thick and had lots of seafood including big pieces of meat from the claws. The handsome server in his stylish kilt was very friendly. Sure hope to return in the near future when we visit Halifax!
