“Wonderful Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

We found this restaurant for lunch and felt that the food was of very high class for a reasonable price. The lobster roll was exceptional and the mussels with lemon and thyme was also very good. The service was helpful and efficient. Very good indeed.

“Delicious!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

My husband and I happened upon McKelvie's after spending the day touring Halifax. We didn't have a reservation, but at 6:15 on a Wednesday night, we were happy to be seated immediately. Our server Kori was knowledgeable, cheerful, and attentive. The special that night was a seafood entrée and was the best meal we had on our entire trip. Highly recommend!!

“Most Memorable East Coast Meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

McKelvie's was by far our favourite East Coast meal! My husband had been here numerous times on business, and was anxious for my son and I to try it, and it didn't disappoint. We had a reservation for two hours later, but being hungry and in the neighbourhood, they cheerfully took us in with a, "Well, let's feed you!" The service was impeccable, friendly, yet casual. Since I couldn't decide, my husband graciously shared the second entrée I was eyeballing so that I could try both the fish tacos and the blackened salmon. Both were amazing, and fish tacos being the best I've tried (and I've had it numerous times). I had lobster mashed potatoes on the side since, although we like lobster, at this point in the trip I was a bit lobstered-out. The mash was a perfect compromise. All the taste with none of the work. My son enjoyed his fish and chips - very light, not greasy. Oh, the mandarin mojito was another delightful surprise. I can't wait to go back!
