“Poorly managed”
Reviewed October 23, 2010

2 hours and 5 minutes is what it took for lunch on a Friday.
The manager here is nothing but a busboy. When we asked him why it was taking so long, he just asked the server. No follow up, nothing. Told the server that we will never be back, and he didn't seem to care either. He was more focused on his tip. Food was at least hot and tasty, but the service sucked. The manager should have been running that ship, talking to the guests and not cleaning tables. Talk about a jack ASStor.

“Go Somewhere else”
Reviewed June 6, 2010

The staff are rude and inconsiderate. The food is mediocre at best. I was there recently for a staff event and the hostess refused to sit us because only 4 of our group was there. Within 5 mins The rest of the group had shown up, however the manager had given away our table, then had the nerve to tell us it would be a 2 hr wait for another table.

Don't eat there, head to downtown Halifax and eat at one of the many delicious pubs or restaurants there. The food is much fresher and you will be treated with respect.
