“Best "overall" place to eat in Halifax”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Honestly, this place is one of the best places to eat in Halifax. Consistently good. Always fresh and everything is done right.

Can't say enough good things about this place. If you go...get the pita club with Darrell fries...with gravy on the side. If it's not the best thing you've eaten in ever...I'll eat my shorts!

“Good burgers, nice patio”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

A quiet street with a nice outdoor patio. Great place to relax with a local pint (Garrison Brewery) and some descent executed burgers and potato wedges. Burgers served on very fresh kaiser bun, moderate portioned with fun combinations (fried egg, bacon, cheddar and avocado) or (pineapple, mozza, teriyaki, onion rings). Won't win a prize for ambience inside the restaurant. Good value.

“Little Gem”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I would have never found this place but people I was on a course with highly recommended this place. It's a smaller place, but have an outside patio. Food was great.

They have a few items that have won local awards for favorite's several years in a row. Favorite burger I think it was 7 or 8 years in a row. It is a MUST try!

The service was a little slower then expected because of the size but they were friendly so it kinda made up for it.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

We eat here 2-3 times a week. Food is consistently good, lots of options and great prices. It's been our family restaurant for years. Kim, the manager, is the best!

“Great Sport Bar and Restaurant”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

I have visited this great little restaurant in the south end of Halifax for many years as it is close to Dal and SMU Universities. My comments are reflected during daytime hours and have no knowledge of late evening routines. This restaurant is great for all ages with families. They have two kinds of frys. Darrell fries which are larger, spicy frys like beefeaters and regular frys. I prefer the regular ones but my children the Darrell frys. Everything on the menu is great but a couple of my favourites are the cran sandwich and the peanut butter burger. The cran sandwich has turkey and cranberries and all the trimmings and the the burger is great and has peanut butter in it. Be cautious those with allergies. Both are just wonderful. It has a downstairs and up and has a back door entrance from the sobeys parking lot which is quite conveinent. It is a great place to visit with your university kids and especially after a game at the new tower.
