Good food...was there for breakfast as well as supper. Food was delicious, well worth the cost. Cost is mid range and very worth it.

If you like a boisterous bar....this place is for you. We stopped in just for a drink after having dinner across the street. The world curling, which was held in Halifax, was on the large screen. Very lively and totally enjoyed the hype. Bartenders very friendly and made sure no one was waiting for drinks. Pint of Molson's $5.65 +... More

We enjoyed the delicious meal and drinks and the service was excellent. The place was packed and music provided was lively and very enjoyable. Wonderful 'old pub' feel with an Irish touch. Awesome!

My husband and I are visiting from away. This was the first restaurant we checked out in Halifax. We stopped in for lunch and a pint. We both had the cheeseburger and fries. It was delicious! We both ate every morsel on our plate. I had been eyeballing the dessert menu, but was just too stuffed to eat anymore. We... More

This is a great place to grab a cold one or a good meal. Many traditional Irish offerings. Pub is divided into three areas. One where music is offered, another away from the music and several snugs for privacy. Oh...and a patio for summer months. One of the more popular pubs in Halifax.

This is a wonderful place to bring out of town guests. It is a cozy pub with lots of atmosphere. We enjoyed fish bites with our beers recently. Perfect snack when you need a little something to eat. This was my second time here - I loved it then and I still love it. Really must stop in more often!

Great location downtown! Very bland for "an Irish Ale House". Not a lot of atmosphere. Service is very good and quick and staff seem to enjoy their work. Food is excellent and decent variety to menu.

The harbourfront boardwalk in Halifax is spectacular, with lots to see and places to eat, but step a block up the hill and into this great pub, in one of Halifax's historic buildings and you won't be disappointed. We like the two upper levels best for their ambiance. Great pub grub and friendly staff. Very good, inexpensive luncheon menu. I... More
