“Disastrous”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

If you like bad food and tasteless jokes, you will love the Halifax Feast. We came here with our family for a performance of "Big Twang Theory" and I literally had to stare at my table so as not to be embarrassed by the continuous raunchy dialogue. I know the TV show the play was based on has quite a bit of sexual innuendo, but this script crossed the line, including probably 10 uses of the word "coitus". To give you an idea of how off-colour and offensive the humour here is, the show included a crowd-pleasing (not) joke that began with "religion is like a penis" and another whose punchline was a man being raped by another man.

The food was awful. I order the "coconut curry and lime shrimp", which sounded delicious. Judging by what arrived on my plate, they must have just tossed all the shrimp in a big pot of water and tossed in a bit of sauce from a jar. The shrimp (all 6 of them) were overdone and there was virtually no sauce on them whatsoever. There was just a little bit of watery sauce, maybe a teaspoon, that had dripped off them onto my plate. I could taste a little bit of curry but that's it. The vegetables served alongside the shrimp, baby carrots and snap peas, were of the frozen-and-then-boiled variety. The names of the dishes offered sounded very appetizing, but were ultimately disappointing.

“Great night out”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

My husband and I went to Halifax Feast to see "the Big Twang Theory". Was hilarious--there was actually a time when I was sitting there with tears just streaming down my cheeks! Food was not the best (striploin a big on the tough side) but certainly not BAD by any stretch. Would go again and again in a heartbeat! Worth the money!

“Interactive”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

Generally all their shows are fun, the actors/waitstaff are totally involved and seem to really enjoy their roles.
There usually only 2 maybe three entree choices so if you're a picky eater you might want to check and see what the choices are.
It can be quite expensive.
