The food here is basic pub house food but very affordable. Great haddock and sweet potato fries. The live music is a treat.

Once again I stopped in with an out of town guest. We enjoyed the Acadian gumbo and the steak and Kidney Triangle. Both were delicious. Service is great, the food is great, the atmosphere and live music are great. I really should come more often, not just with visitors!

I was in Halifax on my first visit with a couple hours to kill before my flight. I picked the Old Triangle because it was the first restaurant I walked by and I was not disappointed.

First time to Halifax, first time to the East Coast for a native Albertan. Great pub food with truly Irish authenticity. Reasonably priced. Good beer. Felt very welcoming.

This place is very expensive, sixteen dollars for a lamb burger that was over cooked. Definately not worth the money. This is just a Tavern people...Stop over charging people.

Went there with my wife and daughter a few days before Christmas. Music was good, but food was terrible, and staff were efficient but not friendly for an Irish experience. Do not go here to eat!
