1685 Argyle St, Halifax, NS B3J 2B5, Canada
Go here for the atmosphere, oysters and award winning bar tenders, Shane Beehan and Jeff Van Horne. My advice? Sit at the bar in the main atrium, and let them decide what drink to make for you or choose off the ever changing "innovative" list....
352 Pleasant St, Dartmouth, NS B2Y 3S5, Canada
A legend, an institution. Ask for clams, no chips - why fill up on fries when the clams are this good? If your not feeling clams, then try the scallops with haddock tips (no chips) or go for a classic two piece fish and chips.
179 Hebridean Dr, Herring Cove, NS B3V 1H4, Canada
The most wonderful local haddock fish and chips, on a little corner in Herring Cove. Take out must be eaten on a sunny day, on the breakwater where local fishermen bring in their catch. Best paired with Jones Cream Soda. Make sure you ask for...
