Everything about Stillwell is so great. The rotating taps are awesome - local beer gets all the cheer in NS! Every time I go in there is something new and special - first time I tried Vicar's Cross was here and boy did it get me in trouble (don't worry, the good kind!). I love the big wall where they...

You don't go to Stillwell's for the food, that being said the food is a pleasant surprise as it is quite good. If you go with someone who doesn't like beer there are options for them as well. As far as the beer goes they have an excellent selection that you won't find elsewhere. They have beer from Dunham and... More

Cute little hipster bar on Barrington Street in Halifax. Loved the fact they have rotating taps - keeps it interesting! Nice casual vibe at the beer, easy listening music and dim lighting to set the scene - what more could you want?!?! Fast service and an abundance of seating - at the bar, booth and high top communal tables. I... More

I spent a week in Halifax and had a beer at Stillwell twice. This is definitely a good place to get to know the Nova Scotian and other Atlantic microbreweries. The bartender was knowledgeable and eager to talk about the products.

Firstly, this place fills up quick, so get there early! And secondly, you can tell why it's full all the time once you go. They have a selection of really good local micro brews and knock some solid dishes out. We took some visitors here and they were in love! They thought the place was one of the nicest bars... More

This was the only times I've seen rain come down, go sideways, and I think back up again. We "couple of mainlanders" were completely drenched looking for anywhere dry, and stumbled upon this little gem. The only thing wetter than us, were the beers. What a selection! Stilwell's is supporting the micro Brewers from around the city. "which I think... More

I stopped in after work before another event to catch up with a friend and had a great time. Multiple choices of beer and we enjoyed a tortilla chip and cheese dip. A bit pricey for some of the beers, but the selection and atmosphere make it a great choice for the right occaision. You have to go get your... More

Good selection of beers and very tasty food. Food is a bit overpriced but it worth trying it. When I went there was a Sunday night and the place was quite empty, but I've heard that Fridays and Saturdays it is pretty busy. The Staff is very friendly and personal and the background music is not loud to a point... More
