Ate dinner here after walking the Halifax Public Gardens. Had the Chef salad, huge but didn't care for the 1000 island dressing. Husband had the Taco Quesadilla and small salad, good.

The food was disgusting. The Salisbury steak was unrecognizable. Fish and chips were burnt. The tossed salad was limp. And brown. Don't even try to eat here.
