My wife, my older daughter and I went there yesterday for supper and to celebrate my birthday (although neither one of them paid, lol). We were pleasantly surprised to learn that it was "buy one seafood dinner and get one free" so that was an added bonus. I also got a free dessert because it was my birthday so that... More

Love the Beer Market! We try to go weekly and really enjoy the specials! The service is great and it can be a little dark sometimes but we love the building. It has such a great atmosphere! Their homemade soups are delicious also. We would love for them to bring back their fish bites!!!!

It is a fun dive bar that has great live music. It's crowded and not much of a drink selection but it's great music and a fun crowd.

A friend and I recently went to the Lower Deck to have a belated birthday celebration. She has a walker and some mobility issues. We ended up going to the second level which was a bit time consuming, but the staff were great and suggested the easiest route to go, and didn't mind the walker being stored on the bench... More

I always feel energized at this pub. The live maritime music gives this pub the fun atmosphere. A trip to Halifax would not be complete without a few beers at the Lower Deck in the Historic Properties. They also have great pub food and good service.

My better half and I ate here for supper on our monthly date night. I had the Market Club Platter with a draft Lagger. The sandwich was insanely delicious! Andy was our server, he was prompt, polite, and funny. Very knowledgeable of the dishes and beverages served. We will definitely come back to the Lower Deck again!

We went there using a groupon. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was hot and plentiful. The only down side was that it was a little salty for my taste. Generally good though.

We had dinner at the Lower Deck in Halifax and were pleasantly surprised by its quality. Normally we would go to Lower Deck in the suburbs of Halifax but this time we opted for the one at the harbourfront. What a difference. The restaurant upstairs is fresh and clean looking, has plenty of windows facing the harbor and all smells... More
