The first time I heard of The Works, I was a little skeptical I have to say. My family went first and came back with rave reviews on their fabulous meals. Being a vegetarian, I wasn't to keen when they told me we were going...More

We might have guessed service would be slow when it took a while to get seated. Drinks - in pint Pyrex jugs - arrived quickly but no food for 45 mins. Our server was very apologetic and polite but she had been left taking the...More

What can I say? 45-minute wait for the food...my burger was waaay over done, not juicy whatsoever. $14 was the price, which was about $13 too much. Would definitely not recommend

Really - At The Works in Halifax we have eaten the best burgers ever! But, please, dear staff, relax - It's not necessary to ask your customers every 5 mins if everything is Ok with the food. We found it a bit oppressing.

The Works opened this year and can certainly compete with all the existing competition out there. The food is good, staff friendly, and the decore is brilliant - from the measuring cups for drink glasses to the chain link fence adorning the booths. The menu...More

Love the decor and ambiance! Not sure how to describe it - industrial loft? Interesting anyway. There is an outdoor patio, but the night was a little cool so we sat inside by the front window which was open (like a garage door). Service was...More
