The service is juvenile and it took 30 minutes to get a salad to the table. It also felt cave-like, which did not help. I come for business monthly and generally... More

We missed the brewery tour by 15 minutes but stayed for a couple Keiths and food. I had the Lobster Dip and it was great. The service was good. The prices decent. The atmosphere in the history building was awesome.

Centrally located in downtown Halifax; inside the Old Keith's Brewery. While the decor was quite interesting, the food and service was average.

We weren't very hungry, so we just had a few beers and some fries. The Service was good, and the atmosphere was pretty cool but not very busy on a Saturday night.
