Went there for a quiet lunch after a stressful week. As always, the food and atmosphere was what we needed. Friendly staff, cold beer, good food, what more can you ask?

Amazing food, amazing staff and of course amazing beer. It's a must go whenever I am in Halifax! If you want a taste of Atlantic Canada - this is the place.
