We were walking through Halifax and heard someone talk about a place with a good happy hour, so we invited ourselves along. Drinks are discounted, a few very good appetizers are half-off, the patio is great. Go & enjoy!

Ate there tonight for the first time. Nice place. Nice servers. Decent prices, but won't get the pan-fried haddock again. Was over-done and the coating was charred. Nachos were good though.

Good pub food indoors and out. Good happy hour specials on beer and appetizers. The location is great.

But just an average breakfast. Average at best. Service was fine. I use home fries as my gauge for good breakfast. Theirs are deep fried; sorry, that is a no-no. Convenient location , so go if you must. Once was enough for me.

We sat out on the patio and it took our server a long time to bring us a menu, to get us some water, to take our order, .... There were 2 other servers on the patio and they were faster than a speeding bullet....More

This place serves $4 pints of Alexander Keith's every evening. Best deal in town. It has a huge patio which is always full--great atmostphere--and there servers and bartenders are dealing with the volume well. I only ate fries here, which were tasty.

Pretty sure it is early in the day. They open at 6:30am for breakfast as they are connected to the 4 Points Sheraton which does not have an in house restaurant so I'm sure a drink won't be a problem. Their happy hour prices... More
