We ate here New Years Eve and it was simple wonderful. The view of Halifax harbour was spectacular and set the mood. The food was very good , the service was maybe not the best but it was fairly busy so we made allowances. All in all I would eat here again

We were there for lunch. It was a cold day and it was a bit of a hike from where we parked. The food was good. We had the lobster chowder and it was good - lots of lobster. Our daughter ordered the whole lobster. It was stupidly expensive. It wasn't priced on the menu and she should have asked... More

Service was decent, friendly and food was tasty. Was a bit windy during our trip but we couldn't pass on this outdoor patio. Lots of calamari appetizers in Halifax and this location offered a good top five in my book.

Took friends from the prairies here. They loved the view and wonderful seafood choices. The chef even altered a menu item for one of us. Staff are great. Always a good choice while walking the waterfront

My wife and I split a lobster dinner and some chowder. They were both good, but we had better while in Halifax.

The crab cakes are amazing, as was the lobster and wine list. A bit overpriced but highly recommend visitng at least once. Service was quite nice.

Been to Salty's many, many times over the past 20+ years. Stopped in NYE for a bowl of chowder and spinach salad. Sat downstairs on the water, any closer we'd be on the wharf which was great. Service was ok, our server didn't smile once but was attentive checking back. Salad as goo and fresh, seafood chowder wasn't worth the... More
