“Great Irish and Local Fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I ate there last week on a crowded Thursday night, but still had excellent service and excellent food. My wife had the shepards pie and I had their fish chowder, which was amazing. Great live music as well - that night they had a great Irish session going.

“Great Pub Grub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

We had lunch there. It was late, so almost deserted, and therefore not very atmospheric. However, the food (Irish lamb stew and Irish spring salad & chowder) was excellent, as was the Moosehead lager.

“Great time, fabulous food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We went to Durty Nelly's on March 11 to see a fashion show of Celtic designs. Unfortunately the power was off when we arrived and was on and off a couple of times during the time we were there. Thanks to a great server ( can't recall her name but she plays the fiddle there she said) who figured out everyone's bill while the power was off and expedited our food order as soon as the power was back on, we had a great time. The power finally came on( it was apparently a car accident down the street that cut the power) and we enjoyed really good food. The ribs were melt in your mouth delicious with a Jamesons Irish whiskey sauce. The bruchetta was great as was the spinach and artichoke dip. Lots of food and some to take home left over! We enjoyed our afternoon at Durty Nelly's and we will go back soon. The authentic Irish pub atmosphere is awesome and original.

“What fun! A visit to Halifax must include Durty Nelly's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

My daughter and I had such a good time here. We came early for supper and and duo who were performing between 4 and 7, who were wonderful. Everyone always seems to have such a good time in Halifax! We definitely did at Nelly's - highly recommended, but go early or you won't get in!
