We went for lunch at the lower deck on the second floor. We had the pan-fried haddock and it was delicious. The side dish of vegetables were fresh (not frozen or canned) so were very good as well. Service is fast and friendly. Our only complaint is that they could mix in some east coast tunes with their music. Overall... More

We were here for a quick dinner, waiting to go to airport. A good place to have fun and eat downtown Halifax. Just next door to the historical pier where immigrants arrived from Europe into Canada

If you enjoy excellent music, beer and good company, this place is for you! The matinee performances with Paul Lamb (and if you're really lucky, Cory Tetford) are our idea of a perfect Halifax outing. They are incredibly talented and will not disappoint. The food is typical pub fare. A gastro pub it is not. But the servers make sure... More

Stumbled across this place after eating at Salty's. Glad we did, what a fun night! The live music was fun and upbeat, as was the crowd. It gets packed, so if you want a quiet night, reconsider.

My favorite bar in Halifax! Live music, good drinks, what else do you need! I've never been disappointed at the lower deck! Best rum and cokes in Halifax :)

I like this sort of bar. Lowbrow. Cold beer. Music. What I could not accept was the sticky table, disheveled layout, slow service and food not much better than a 7-11. It smelled damp & dingy and if you wanted the feel of an old boat you'd find it here.

If you are in Halifax you have to go here for an evening of live music. It was most excellent and we had such a good time. From what I am told it's a good band every night.
