Family of six enjoyed a beautiful brunch at the Inn Sunday to celebrate Fathers' Day. Food was great and our hostess was excellant. We had the booth which is very cosy. We do attend quite often for Sunday brunch so keep up the good work!

This Restaurant has a nice setting along the shores of the Shubenacadie canal system. It was a great setting for a Father's Day dinner. i enjoyed the bangers and mash potatoes. The cobb salad was wonderful and a must have for anyone. I would like to see a little lobster with the surf and turf to juice it up and... More

Arrived in Halifax, and with the recommendation of the Budget Car Rental attendant, stopped by the inn on the way to Wolfville. What a beautiful setting by the lake AND a scrumptious meal. From the crunchy 'fish & chips' entree to the delightful chicken & mushroom crepe, everyone's meal was perfectly prepared and tantalizing to the taste buds! Service was... More

It was a cold and drizzly Sunday. I had visions of a nice, warming little glass of dry sherry before my meal as I drove to Inn on the Lake for lunch with my book club. I caused confusion. Apparently sherry isn't served this way - it was offered with ice. When it came it was in a tumbler -... More

Family members (6) met at the Inn on the Lake in Fall River, Nova Scotia. We had excellent meals perfectly prepared and served hot. Everyone agreed that this was an evening we will remember for a long time. I recommend to everyone to consider the Inn on the Lake as a possibility for your evening in the Halifax area. Ernest

We have found Encore to be a consistently fine restaurant. I personally have to eat gluten free and dairy free and have always been so well attended to. When I first made my dietary restrictions known to the staff, the chef, Mark, came to our table offering to prepare a dessert that I could eat. A few days later I... More

Visited April 6 for a good friend's birthday, were put in a cold side room, at least twenty minutes to take order, food came quickly and was OK, nothing special, no offers of extra coffee (or anything). Waitress/hostess (same person) was blunt/short with us all along, when we asked for more coffee at less than an hour after arriving she... More

My husband took me to Encore - Inn on the Lake for my Birthday and, as always, the restaurant was truly enjoyable. The food is consistently good and our server, Bre, was very attentive. She was very knowledgeable about the specials. There is a nice wine selection and we are happy to recommend this establishment.

Around the middle of December our Brunch Club went to the Encore Restaurant at Inn on the Lake. We were a party of 19 and as far as could tell we all really enjoyed our Christmas Dinner and our server was fantastic. She had everything under control from start to finish and all of our group had a marvellous time.

My wife and I visit both Olivers and Encore regularly. The food is always fresh and tasty. Their menu is extensive and varied? Eating in the main restaurant or the pub is always a positive experience. We find the staff to be friendly and knowledgeable and always attentive. Incidently, the club sandwich rivals any in metro Halifax. There is enough... More
