The band wasn't great, but it didn't matter. Everyone talks to everyone, you feel like you're almost part of the family, and we had a really good time. Stayed (and drank!) way more than we should have!!

Tried this pub for the first time recently. There was a good musician -- it was earlier in the evening and he wasn't overwhelming & made for good atmosphere. Service was slow but friendly & the server apologized. The fish and chips were excellent -- $11, two pieces of fish and hand cut fries. Generally you find restaurant battered fish heavy on the batter and light on the fish, but the batter was thin and crispy and size of the fish pieces was generous. The crowd was young but we thought that was perhaps because it was Friday night. Anyway, we'll be back!

We went here after a local event for a drink and appetizers. Ordered a few beers and had the spinach dip which was absolutely amazing! Best I've had in a long time. It was an early Friday evening so it wasn't too busy. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Also a great spot to go to catch some good bands!

I was told Pogue Fado was one of the "best" pubs in Halifax but we were disappointed. The clientele was very young the service was very slow and overall the food was not good. The chicken wings were why we went as we had been told that they had a great wing special. Wings were .35 cents and there were lots of choices on the menu but it took over 35 minutes to get one order of wings and they weren't even close to being "great'.
There are many better pubs in Halifax, I wouldn't go back here.
