Pleasantly surprised! Good eats!

The concierge at the hotel had recommended this Pub - and his first recommendation was not stellar - but we tried this and were pleasantly surprised. The patio dining area was very nice on a warm Halifax evening. Service was great. The wait staff even provided a two page history of the Henry House... read more

Best seafood chowder we have had ANYwhere. The local beer/cider flights were enjoyable too. Friendly, efficient service.

A group of five of us had dinner downstairs in the pub. Great historic feel to the place, and very good service from our server. Several at our table ordered the Apricot Wheat Ale to start, and all said it was very tastey. My daughters, who live in Halifax, recommended the burgers at Henry House, as "the best" in town....

Met up friends and family for supper here. We sat on the patio which had a beautiful yet comfortable atmosphere. We enjoyed that there was much to choose from for drinks and food on the menu. We ordered burgers and fries which tasted great! Another person from our table ordered the jambalaya and said it was okay but not much... More

Great service, modest prices and above average food. One can chose indoor or outdoor seating. Plan on pasta, bergers, sandwiches and casseroles.

I come from the beer wasteland of Alberta, so Halifax is a treat with all its great craft brews available in every pub. But Henry House was even better with at least three different cask-conditioned ales, hand-pumped and served at cool, not ice cold. A great for lovers of real ale. Went there three times and on the last night... More

This is a pub environment with quite an extensive menu . My wife & I went there to have the pan fried Haddock , which friends had recommended to us . We were not disappointed . It was surprisingly good - especially for a pub . Served with green beans and sugar peas cooked to perfection - crisp and green... More

We enjoyed everything about the Henry House. Great drinks (specialty beers); great staff and warm and cozy atmosphere! We enjoyed dining here several times for both lunch and dinner during our stay in Halifax, NS
