For our first night in Halifax we picked Your Father's Moustache based on advertising and reviews. Note the restaurant is on the second floor so those have trouble with stairs be advised. Didn't notice if there was an elevator. The place was fairly busy on a Sunday night. After a long day of travel, it was relaxing. Service was good... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and we enjoyed our various meals. I always order fish when I'm on the coast and so I tried their fish special. The creole sauce was a nice touch. My husband likes his hamburgers and wasn't disappointed, and our friend had fish tacos which he said were delicious. There was a great informal atmosphere... More

Your Father's Moustache is a Halifax icon, being one of the more popular eating and drinking destinations on the ever-popular Spring Garden Road. There is both indoor and outdoor seating, with the outdoor seating being upstairs on the roof. If you're lucky you can get a table with a nice street view. The atmosphere can get very festive, especially on... More

If you are looking for standard menu offerings this place is just fine. The menu is really big so you know most of it is pre-made frozen but what we got was fine for the price - most of the mains are around $14. There was a friendly, happening vibe when we were there for lunch.

I never ate here before but my girlfriend had and recommended it. We walked here from the Westin Nova Scotian and got a table around 6PM on a Saturday evening. They had a live band playing and there was lots of nice decor to look at. Our server was quick and we had a pitcher of beer to start. My... More

My wife had grilled salmon and Caesar salad, I had a cup ? big of seafood chowder followed by fish and chips. Both our meals were excellent, no complaints at all. High on quality. Our server Chloe was a credit to the establishment, very friendly and interested in why two English people were in Halifax. This pub/eatery is a gem... More

Your Father's Moustache is the place to be for great food, fun and live entertainment in downtown Halifax. Our scrumptious menu includes fish and chips, lobster, pasta, steaks, and seafood.
Our patio has been voted #1 in halifax for the last 11 years for best patio.
Our pub club was so good for so long that they retired the club category and we are forever the best club in town.
Voted best wings, best caesar, best brunch and best service at different times over the last few years.
Our legendary brunch is available Saturday, Sunday and all holidays.

Hope to see you at the Stache.
