This was our first stop in Halifax. The service was great and the drinks were great. We came back here a few times for drinks but we never ate here.

This is a very busy, loud, on the street restaurant. The glass walls open up to the street so you can enjoy the street life passing by. The food is very average bar food and the music is very loud. If you want to talk to your dinner companion this is not the place.

My first time at the Fickle Frog - ordered take out and the service was extremely quick. Now chowing down on the portebello burger and fries, super tastey! Colin the server was very friendly, and I'll definitely be back for a beer! :)

The food was good pub food at a very reasonable price. The variety of beers was good at a good price. Staff attentive without being over the top. A good place for casual dining and to soak up some pub culture.

Had the breakfast buffet. Not bad at all really! It includes a make your own waffle area. You make your own toast so it's not soggy. And only $10 for all you can eat! I'll go back, and I'm kinda' fussy!

Needed some lunch after walking around the Public Gardens and saw this restaurant ( I like frogs, that is why we went in). The chowder and beef vegetable soup was very good. One of our friends had a hamburger and it was huge and said it was tasty. Good fast service

Meh... Bartender was unfriendly and unhelpful, she was well below average as a bartender. The server was very helpful, polite and quick. Tenderloin tips were super bland and had a funny taste (not good). Fries are hand cut fresh but not properly prepared, so soggy. Good gravy (from a bag mixed with boiling water). Caesar salad and spinach salad were... More

We were somewhat limited on time, but saw this place. We ordered fish & chips, which turned out to be very good. The chips were nice and crispy, and the huge piece of fish was lightly battered and made fresh. The price was very reasonable, and the people working there were very attentive and pleasant.

Went to the Fickle frog and it seems to be a local university spot? It was crowded and loud. They place filled up after we had ordered. Unlimited chilli cheese fries on Thursday, it's unlimited but I wouldn't go back. It's okay, but I nothing to jump for. Our table also had the peanut butter burger it was just ok... More
