This meal was from beginning to end a delight! A truly memorable experience. None of the usual distractions allow you to carry on a conversation.

Due to a work meeting, I had to eat late, and Stories (in the Halliburton Inn where I was staying) held a table for me even though it was just after their last reservation. The table and food and service were just right and all I had to do was climb back upstairs afterwards. Thank you Stories for accommodating me!

We drove to Halifax and met up with our son who was there on business from Ottawa. Stories was recommended to our son, so we made a reservation and decided to give it a try. Absolutely no regrets!

My wife and I booked a reservation at Stories for our anniversary and we're not disappointed. Upon arrival we were treated to menus with our names and wishing us happy anniversary. This was followed by some champagne to celebrate. This request was made on our behalf from a friend, which helped to start the meal off right. Our waitress was... More

While staying at the Halliburton I ordered room service one night from Stories. I had a tough time deciding between the duck or the ahi tuna, but after talking with a girl who worked there, I decided on the duck. Definitely did not regret my decision. The duck was cooked perfectly and was served with some vegetables, on top of... More

We went to dinner at Stories for a special birthday dinner and were completely blown-away with our meal. While the dinning area is small, the ambiance, service and quality of all four meals was outstanding. I don't know how they pulled this off with only three in the kitchen (according to our server). They have a wonderful wine selection, including... More
