My wife and I split a lobster dinner and some chowder. They were both good, but we had better while in Halifax.

Been to Salty's many, many times over the past 20+ years. Stopped in NYE for a bowl of chowder and spinach salad. Sat downstairs on the water, any closer we'd be on the wharf which was great.

We went to Salty's a couple of times in mid 90's when to the best of the recollection was the only restaurant on the waterfront. While in Halifax this summer decided to try it again and were not disappointed. Same very good seafood, attentive service and harbour views. One thing that has changed is there are a few more restaurants... More

This restaurant had a great view of the harbour. They accommodated 6 of us ladies with no reservation and it felt like we were treated special. The service was great and friendly and the food was great. Loved the crab cakes!
