“This is where the locals go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

If you are visiting Halifax, or live in the HRM, take a drive over to Dartmouth and have a great meal at Jamiesons. The staff are incredibly friendly and the atmosphere is cozy and warm. Have a drink at the bar or sit in a big comfy chair in the 'living room' before dinner. There is something for everyone...awesome chowder and seafood dishes...the haddock and salmon are to die for. There are pastas and burgers and a broad range of gluten free options. The service and food are consistently perfect. If you want to eat where the locals eat, away from the touristy places, and away from big box chains, go here. Enjoy!

“Enjoyed the Prime Rib”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

Went to Jamieson's looking for a good home cooked meal on a Sunday. My wife and I both had the prime rib which included gravy, mashed potatoes and other vegetables. The service was great and the roast beef was cut exactly to our taste. I enjoyed a fresh Smithwick's while my wife received a pot of tea to enjoy with her meal. Very enjoyable meal in a nice surroundings.

“Great food & gluten free”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

This place is great... it has the feel of an Irish Pub, but it's menu is not the standard 'pub' fare for the Halifax area. The owner is celiac, and there are a lot of gluten free options here. Never had a bad meal here.

Hi CGReno,

Thanks for the feedback and compliments. We have been serving many gluten free options for over 12 years now and always on the lookout for more. Being a made from scratch establishment with no preservatives or fillers, it is easy for us to tweek and adjust food orders for GF people and many other food sensitivities.

We look forward to hosting you again soon.

“Generous portions, friendly service, tasty food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

I'd been hearing about Jamieson's for years, and finally went tonight. The pub is in an unassuming strip mall, and the decor is a little rough around the edges, but the service was great and the food just delicious. The menu appears a little heavy on protein and starch, with few salad options, but there are vegetables with most dishes. With great big portions, you can eat well and take home leftovers without breaking the bank. My striploin was cooked exactly as ordered, and piled high with delicious caramelized onions and a zippy peppercorn infused with bourbon. So good!

Hi Ellora,

Welcome to Jamieson's and glad you had a great visit and experience. Being a scratch made kitchen with a number of Red Seal Chefs in the house, it's easy for us to adjust practically any order to one's specifications.

We look foward to serving you again in the near future.
