“A seafood lover's delight”

Enjoyed a special dinner at McKelvie's for seafood. Had a great varied menu with daily specials that would suit any palate. The service was excellent and the rainbow trout special was absolutely delicious.

“Beautiful and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

During my families trip to Halifax we came across this restaurant on one of out walks through the city. The patio is fantastic, and it leaves an imprint in your mind.

We came back for my birthday dinner a few days later. The service was impeccable, the decor was beautiful, and the food was AMAZING! Our table was quiet for almost 10 minutes once the food had arrived.

I had a 1 1/4 lb Lobster I had all the tools and had to crack the entire thing. I managed to finish it and wanted more.

The dessert menu was also good. I had this warm caramelly thing. It could have fed 2 people. Thank goodness that upon its arrival I had help from my husband and son.

“Great Food - Not Cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Disliked the prices (it's not over the top, but expect to pay over $60/person for dinner if you are having lobster.

Otherwise, the food is delicious! Ambience reminds me of Red Lobster... we waited nearly 45 minutes for a seat - and when a place is that busy... the food is usually quite good... and in this case... it was spot on!

Although expensive, I'd actually go back for the lobster there!

“Always A Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a favourite of ours when dining in Halifax. I love when a restaurant can do something a little different, yet keep it tasty.
Although recognized (and rightfully so) for their seafood, they have added some great landlubber choices which is nice to see. The staff here are great and the atmosphere always top notch. I do agree with a previous review - try the coconut cream pie!

“Fantastic Food! Afordable Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

On the advice of the Hotel Front desk, I took a walk to McKelvie's and what I found was a restaurant in an old historic building, a good menu, and friendly staff! The seafood Chowder was simply the best I ever had and the Trout was absolutely Mouthwatering!
