Great place to Drink with friends!

Typical prices, but power hour is a must! Often full and busy but quick and friendly service, great way to spend the night in Halifax

Located close to the Halifax waterfront. It's a good decent pub with a good selection of food and beer at fair prices. In the evening they have live music.

My wife Karen and I took a seat at the far end of the bar while Andy sang and played acoustic guitar on the small stage by the front door. Adrian poured us frosty local brews and made us feel quite at home. The place is full of cool clutter and has that "make yourself comfy and have fun" quality.... More

Stopped in mid-afternoon to have a few drinks and explore another piece of Halifax. They claim the Molson Canadian is served sub-zero, but that might be pushing it. It was definitely colder than the raspberry micro-brew I tried next. After 2 beers that were warm by the end, I switched things up to a Caesar. Apparently established in 1749 the... More

This place makes Halifax feel like home !! The oldest operating Pub in Halifax which has been around since the city was established. We were there in the early afternoon for drinks, Scott greeted us and whisked us to a street side window for a terrific view of the crowds passing by. The Pub has a menu which would have... More

this is a great location to either sit outside and enjoy the summer rays and drink a few cold ones. The munchies/appetizers they serve here are excellent and great value. On the weekends it is harder to find a table due to the live music but wait staff are wonderful and the food is always hot.

Nothing fancy for food but edible bar munchies for sure. We thought the service was ok lots of room for improvement. It wasn't busy when we were there and they seemed bored. We made our own fun. There is so much history in Halifax and this place has its own story, too. Check it out:)

I was hoping for something locally sourced and inventive from the split crow menu, but it wasn't quite there. I had a soup and sandwich special. Mushroom soup and grilled cheese. The soup was tasty and seemed home made but the sandwich was a big flop. It was a kraft cheese slice or some other highly processed cheese between two... More

Had the opportunity to visit the Split Crow again after many years. It basically looked the same as I had remembered it from about 20 yrs ago which is a great pub atmosphere. It was early in the evening so not much of a crowd at that point. The waiter was a wonderful guy from Cape Breton who made my... More
