These two sisters run an understated seafood place that is very unassuming but serves the freshest best seafood anywhere. Their father is a fisherman who brings in fresh fish everyday. If gluten free scares the foodie in you , you will be surprised at how this fact does not figure into the taste at all. It is just above excellent fare. If you take the ferry from Halifax you can get a great view of the city and have your self a fabulous maritime experience. Don't expect a fancy venue just above average food.

I went to Evan's on another Trip Advisor's recommendation. I had the BEST lobster roll I've ever had in N.S.

They also serve gluten free fish and chips in dedicated friers. No issues and very delicious!

We sat on picnic tables over looking Halifax harbour, and the ferry between Halifax and Dartmouth stops right in front of the picnic tables. So although the ambiance wasn't great (screaming kids) the wait was about 10 minutes, and the food was delicious.

I loved Evan's fishburger (haddock) and fries. You can eat it inside, or outside by the water. The view either way is great. You place your order at the counter and the charming staff bring it to you. What could be better?

Haddock burger was lightly battered and delicious. Fresh fish from southwestern Nova Scotia every morning! Fries were hand cut and some of the best I have tasted. Service was a bit slow, as it took 40 minutes for our food to be served after ordering. We felt a bit rushed, as we only had an hour for lunch.
