Love it for Breakfast!

My wife and I really enjoy breakfast here, friendly and efficient wait staff who looked after all our needs. Our meals were quickly made to order and our bacon & eggs cooked exactly as ordered! A large plate of good food at a very fair price will have us back again on our next trip to Halifax!!

I had dinner at Bluenose II one weekday evening in April 2015. The restaurant was slow, and I'm pretty sure it closed shortly after I arrived. Service was prompt and friendly. I ordered the Fish and Chips, which were stellar. The only downside were the packets of Kraft Tartar sauce, which are good not great. The fish was expertly prepared,... More

We have visited the Bluenose before and had good luck at luch. This trip we stopped for brunch on a busy Saturday Morning. The place was packed ( a good sign) but the servers seated us quickly. The food also arrived promptly and was delicious. There is something for everyone on the menu. Jovial friendly wait staff make the visit... More

Fish in Halifax is the best! Went to this restaurant for a quick dinner and was not disappointed. Ordered the fish selection......it was lovely! The staff were very friendly and served with a smile. You will not be disappointed. I also hear they serve a mean blueberry pancake in the morning!

This is an eatery best suited to business stop-ins and the occasional hungry diner. The atmosphere is quite relaxing, blue hues and good views of the front streets, comfortable booths and little private nooks. Next, I'll talk about the food. Excellent, good homecooked grub. No complaints here, a delicious and wonderful breakfast. So if you are stopping in briefly for... More
