This place is busy and it well deserves its clientele. The interior hearkens back to another era and has some real character. No cookie cutter Denny's here. Just an old-fashioned diner well run. We had their Bennys - Eggs Benedict offerings abound. I had the Coast Guard (smokes salmon, red onion, capers and dill). Delish. My son had the Muchacho... More

The Armview is a halifax staple. I would recommend it to anyone, as you will never be disappointed by your meal. The atmosphere is a "diner type" feel with bar type seating and booths. The menu is sandwiches/burgers, salads, pasta, and a few entrees from land and sea. I had a pulled pork sandwich with quinoa salad and both were... More

Always delicious with wonderful service. I'm never going to wait so long between visits again. Recommended by my doctor this morning, I had their 'Warm Chilean Salad on Greens'. Simply delicious: grilled slices of baby potatoes, grilled slices of chicken breast and chorizo sausage along with beautiful grilled shrimp atop fresh mixed greens, all dressed with balsamic reduction.

I was excited to try the Armview Diner, saw the "You Gotta Eat Here" episode. So I was expecting more, I guess. 4 of us Came in for Lunch, we had the fish burger, hamburger, fish and chips, greek chicken wrap. The food and service was okay, but we have had better. We had to ask waitress twice for condiments... More

Great diner style place. Comfortable booths, pretty young waitresses bustling about, smiling and charming and serving their customers so well. Friendly help with menu questions. Very reasonable prices. Excellent food. Try the Haddock burger and mashed potatoes. I've left full and smiling every time!

Ate here a couple of times while visiting Halifax and both times the food was very good. Actually had Thanksgiving dinner here due to a major power outage in the city and it was a very good meal. The menu is varied and there is something for everyone. The service can be a bit slow if the restaurant is busy... More

We had just checked into the Best Western Chocolate Lake and needed to have dinner after flying for most of the day. We were told that the restaurant in the hotel was full and there was quite a wait. One of the staff members suggested the Armview restaurant. Thought we would give it a try. The server we had was... More

Our first night in Nova Scotia and just down the street from our hotel is the Armview Restaurant, recommended by the hotel front desk. A scant 10 minute walk and we arrive at what can best described as a diner. Clean inside and from first appearances a locals favourite. Luckily enough to get a booth because it was a steady... More
