I've been coming to Halifax just once a year for the past six years. And every time, I eat at Salty's. The location, food, and service are all top-notch. While I've been in their bar/bistro on ground level for drinks, my meals are always on...More

Restaurant by the boardwalk, unobstructed view of Halifax harbour. Seafood menu impressive. Service pleasant and semi-attentive.

Very good food, charming view of the harbor, superior service. I had the seafood platter ($35), my wife had the maritime seafood casserole ($20). Both were excellent! Highly recommended.

We went for lobster, and ended up sharing a lobster and the fish platter. The food was not bad, but you definitely pay for something more than you get. Service is ok, one of the female waiters were really good with kids(!)..

The harbor view while eating is entertaining and beautiful, the waiters are very attentive and acknowledge promptly. The seafood is good, but not outstanding.

Spent the day in Halifax and chose this restaurant because of its location on the water. It was very cold and windy, so we sat inside, but the food and service were excellent. Our friends ate fish & chips and the lobster sandwich. Both of...More
