We arrived at the restaurant apparently between the morning menu and the afternoon menu. Difference - same items different prices. The service was fast but getting our food was another story. My hamburger was overcook and the french fries tasted of oil that needed to be changed.

This restaurant had been recommended by two different people. We were looking forward to a good meal. The calamari was delicious. Main meal terrible. Pasta was not cooked. Caesar Salad and pasta both on the same plate with sauces running together. Seafood platters only thing we could eat was the scallops, haddock tasted BAD and clams so rubbery to cut... More

I was sitting at the booth killing time after my meal and saw the stupid review the person before had written and felt obligated to post one of my own. It's a diner, expect that when you come in. And stop brining kids to restaurants. It's annoying not only for people around you, but for the staff as well. And... More

We were looking for a family friendly restaurant to go to with our kids and the Bluenose 2 was recommended. It started bad and went downhill from there. After a long wait, the kids meals arrived. Their pogos were so greasy, we could literally squeeze the oil out of them. When my husband's and my meals arrived, the veggies were... More

Had the ham and cheese omelet... Came with home fries and toast... Food was delicious, huge portions and super hot temperature wise. Other guests in my party had eggs over easy and sausage and also pancakes. Everyone's meal was delicious- would highly recommend- and the price was great!!

Our server was very nice and the food was standard pub style food. It was good until a rather sizeable mouse came by. He stopped at our table for a minute before finishing his tour of the dining room. Kind of makes one lose their appetite. We notified the server who said she would call the owner. I don't like...

We sat quickly next to a window.. it was chilli so most of us kept our jackets 9n while we ate. Service had a smile but only got 1 refill on coffee. The other servers walking by would not stop by other tables for coffee. 2 of the 4 meals ordered were eggs Benny. Good sized portion but the hash... More

Ok, so it is not much when you go in, it still looks like the 80's, but the service and food makes up for it. I had a lobster Benedict and it was cooked bang on! This seems to be difficult in Halifax, so I was happy. I don't know if I'd get it again, it was a bit expensive,... More

We went there for my birthday and thought by the reviews that it would be a great restaurant. The restaurant itself is old in it's looks but the service was very good. We had an appetizer of calamari which was really good after we got through the grease, which was pooled on the plate and we had to put napkins... More
