The food was decent for a very limited breakfast menu but really there could be a couple more items on the menu considering this is a sit down establishment which opens at 0430. At 0645, I was seated in a near empty restaurant with a full compliment of staff milling about the kitchen area. They seemed to be focused on other more pressing tasks and only after getting the attention of the hostess did a server make her way over. The ‘menu’ unbeknownst to me was a qr code which was under the condiments. Nobody pointed that out when I was first seated. Time for my next flight… and waiting on a bill. Plate has been removed 10 min ago. Guess they are busy. There’s now 5 customers in this section

I just wanted to have something to eat before my flight from Halifax. I had no idea what awaited me. The Firkin & Flyer more than exceeded my expectations. I make a mean shepherd's pie, and I hesitate to try anyone else's, but I decided to take a chance. The meal was incredibly good, and I urge anyone and everyone to try this restaurant as you will not be disappointed. Don't forget to leave room for dessert. That, too, was a winner. The service and atmosphere were also second-to-none. Bravo Firkin & Flyer. I cannot wait to return.

We were here with friends for dinner enroute to another travel location. It is a rather busy location located in the departures area of the airport. we were promptly seated and orders for drinks taken, and the drinks arrived very fast. Our food order was soon taken and before we knew it, the food arrived, piping hot and well presented. After a few bites, it was clear this food was well prepared. The service is very good and the food as well. Some may argue the pricing may be a bit high, but is consistent with most restaurants in airports. We all enjoyed our meals and drinks, relaxed and chatted before we made our way to our departure gate. We wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

We were staying at the hotel so decided to have drinks and a quick snack in the evening. I ordered sweet potato fries without checking the menu. The price was $13 for a tiny basket with about 15 fries. When I mentioned the price to the waitress she agreed that most places sell them for about $8. She however did nothing about it to see if the price was correct. There were about 2 different types of wine, neither of which were good. That said, they were overpriced. This restaurant is not owned by the hotel. My suggestion would be to eat before you check into the hotel

Had to catch a late morning flight to Toronto, flight was a little delayed, so we decided to have some breakfast while we wait. We got a British breakfast. Eggs bacon, pork sausage, fries beans and toast. Eggs and toast the way we wanted. Staff was very friendly. Orders were taken quick, and game quick. The only thing was it’s a very expensive breakfast, but I guess it is the airport where you will pay a premium. If flying out, worth the stop for a meal.

As a traveler, when you get a chance to relax and enjoy good food before a flight, it makes travel all that more enjoyable. We have been here before the pandemic and we enjoyed it. We had plenty of time before our flight. We were promptly seated, menus provided and coffee served. It was a busy morning so the place was fairly busy, people coming and going. We placed our order and it arrived very quickly. It was nicely presented and well prepared. Coffee was refilled as soon as the food arrived. The food was very good and we relaxed and took our time not having to rush, nor did we feel rushed to move on. Overall, the service was very good, food excellent and pricing is reasonable for food at airports. Be patient, it is a busy location especially when there are a lot of flights.

Stopped to grab some supper before boarding our flight. We had to wait in line, although the line moved quite quickly. Once seated we were greeted and drink and food orders were taken. The menu can be assessed thru a QR code on the table. Our server was effective and we had a chat after our meals were complete. The food was fine, nothing special, but did the trick.

The nachos were plentiful and delicious. It took a while to be seated after going here, being told to go see the hostess, asking if we can go back to where we were so we could watch the game on TV and going back to where we started. Good airport food; you shouldn’t expect top dollar “Fine Dining” yet this meal was satisfactory.

We had a long layover in the departures area and this is a good option in the departures area. We tried a lobster roll with fries and a salmon rice bowl and both were delicious. The prices are a little steep but we felt this was good considering the location.

We stopped at the Firkin and Flyer in the Halifax airport on our way home. We ordered the seafood chowder and it was like heaven in a bowl. You have to try it you won’t be disappointed. Simply amazing. We also tried the maple Sriracha Salmon Bowl and the BBQ chicken bowl and they were great too. But they were overshadowed by the chowder.

Very friendly staff, extremely efficient. I ordered fries and before I even finished the word, it pretty much appeared on my table. Well deserved recognition. I’d also like to point out that i’m extremely grateful they have vegan options here, Halifax Airport isn’t the most vegan-friendly airport. The only thing I can say negatively is that it was a bit dirty in places.

Three of us ate here last Tuesday. Service and meal left much to be desired. Two wks ago ate at same restaurant and it was very good. Guess it all depends on management, kitchen & serving staff at time of travel.

The service was great !! Food was Great, u just wish they had a little more to pick from in their menu other than that it was good. I had a Firkin Birger and it was Juicy and had excellent flavour. The fries were a little fresh but nothing crazy.

Lots of time to wait before our flight so it was time for a sit down meal at the airport. On the other side of security they have pub style food at reasonable prices. We ordered the regular burgers and tater tots. We were very pleased with the taste and the quantity of food. My wife’s burger was a little pinker than she likes. Our waiter was excellent and ready to make things right. Appreciate this little bit of good food at the YHZ airport.

I found service to be good. I found the food to be OK. It’s in the middle of the airport with walkways on both sides of the restaurant in a monks the gates. You’re looking for something to eat before you head out it is good as any place.
