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

Always love to find a local full service breakfast. This place fits perfectly. Friendly service, great food. We found the rooms to be quiet and up to date. Very clean and well serviced.

On our last night in Halifax we wanted to have some more of the Digby scallops. We choose the Bluenose 2 based on the reviews that we had read. We were not disappointed. We both got the fried scallop dinner and were they delicious. I know now how this restaurant has been open so long. The service was also very... More

We had lunch at this bar/restaurant during a visit to Halifax. Ordered fish and chips and clam chowder. Service was quick and friendly. I've never had such good chowder with so many clams. Fish and chips also good although the potatoes had a little too much lemon on them for my taste. Good cold beer on tap as well. Would... More

Headed here on a whim for breakfast one morning and was not disappointed. A very clean restaurant with a straightforward simple breakfast menu. I ordered eggs and sausage with whole wheat toast. Doesn't sound exotic but it hit the spot and was quite good. The food was out fast. It was hot and fresh. Coffee was good. Home fries were... More
