If you are looking for fast food then this is the place to go. I expected more freshly made dishes but was surprised that most things are brought in prepackaged ..........so that means into a boiling pot of water or into the microwave. The rice was bland, no taste at all....... Even the dessert was below average, I had the... More

Had a few appetizers and listened to some great folk songs. A nice evening out for not much money. Scallop pops scallops and feta dip were excellent.

Food average, music good. I went to hear the music and ate dinner. It was fine, but nothing I'd go out of my way for. Near the waterfront, but not really a view.

Clubhouse sandwich was great, which I split with a friend but wasn't allowed to have a salad and her have the fries. Paid extra for my salad.

A Groupon gave us the perfect excuse to try out this restaurant for the first time this week before the theatre. I thought the food was great. My husband and I decided to share a plate of crispy breaded wings, served with a trio of sauces, along with a burger - charbroiled cajun burger. Described by their menu as: "A... More

Stopped by on the way to a Saturday Moosehead's game. The restaurant wasn't too busy and there was a 2 man band playing. We took a table closer to the entrance as the music was a little loud up by the band. After waiting 10 minutes to order, I watched as the bartender poured our beers and left them on... More

This was the second time my husband and I ate at Stayner's while on a Canada New England cruise. I felt the food we had in Bar Harbor Maine was better. There Clan Chowder soup was a little thin and my Salad was very weak. My husband hamburger was quite average. The atmosphere is nice and they do get quite... More

We were here later in the evening in October, the end of tourist season. The restaurant was very quiet when we entered, but began to pick up as we were dining. The waiter/bartender (might have been an owner) was very attentive and pleasant. Delicious food and very good prices. I enjoyed my fish tacos and my husband had fish &... More

In an earlier review I might have mentioned that the a Mano Restaurant was our first meal while in Halifax, I stand corrected by my better half, it was our second evening meal, Stayner's was our first. It was late until we happened upon Stayner's, the Patio was near full as was the inside venue, which we took as a... More
