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

The staff and I believe a gentleman who was the owner were so welcoming to us..nothing was a problem. The service, food and ambiance were second to none. Having enjoyed our visit we again returrned a day later and again enjoyed a... 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

We asked the visitor center on the wharf where was a good place to eat a hot lunch and we were sent to the Bluenose 2. Very happy that we went there and all 6 of us were satisfied with what we ordered.

When in Halifax, we had several breakfasts at this location. Food was ok. Service was always good and staff friendly. Located near the boardwalk and close to several hotels.

We were looking for a casual eating spot close to the Hampton Inn and wandered into the Bluenose 11. Unfortunately we had already dined at some far superior establishments during our 4 days in Halifax, so the Bluenose came up short in several departments. That's not to say that it was bad, but the food was average, and the service... More
