While visiting Halifax in mid-August 2011 my wife, son and I visited McKelvie's for dinner one evening.

As their name suggests, seafood is their specialty. We ordered the Digby Scallops, Pan-fried haddock and fish & chips. All of the main fare was excellent, and the accompanying sides- mashed sweet potatoes, sauteed fresh vegetables, grilled zucchini- were as well. Presentation was great, as was the service.

As with all restaurants in Canada, the prices were a bit higher than what you would spend in a comparable US restaurant. But still affordable. It was an enjoyable experience and we'll return should we find ourselves again in Halifax.

We had two good meals, one being a lobster dinner. We were not disappointed. However, the experience was not exceptional. Everything was very good including the service, but it lacked that wow factor. That being said there is not much more to add to the comments provided in other reviews.

Excellent selection, and despite being busy they found us space as we had not booked.
Delicious and fresh, with good service... Tough rather surprised the prices were so high.

We had a wonderful dining expereince in downtown Halifax. McKelvie's is within walking distance of many hotels including the Marriott, where we stayed.
Seafood is their claim to fame and we were not disappointed.

If you are looking for a relaxing quiet atmosphere this is not the place. This restaurant has a very open atmopshere and is very loud. Our seat was also by the kitchen which made it even louder. The food and service is average for the price.
