I have been here a couple of times now. It is an authentic Irish Bar. They have great food, service and of course, pints!

Early night on a long weekend in November but still a favorite by far! Drinks/food/staff/atmosphere amazing. Server Liv was great.

We were doing a bus tour of the Canadian Maritime Provinces which started and ended in Halifax. We had a wonderful lunch here at the start of our tour and an excellent dinner with a wonderful five piece group providing authentic Irish music at the end of the tour. Both of these meals were on our own so you know the place is good if we went back!

We just had some cocktails and beers and enjoyed the atmosphere as everyone was dressed up for Halloween. The service was not the friendliest. In fact, we had to move to other bar seats to get waited on. Our male server was efficient, but lacking in personality to be a professional bartender. Nonetheless, the atmosphere in general made it a worthwhile stop for drinks.

Great looking bar and atmosphere. Draft Beer was barely chilled. Beware of the Crab Cakes, they are mostly fried mashed potatoes with a few threads of crab. Smoke Burger was tasty. Being a Pub, the noise level from patrons is loud at least on a Friday night. Nully's ups the scale by playing the music so loud, everyone has to shout to be heard. It's and Irish Pub, why are they playing 80's and 90's Rock and Roll? Not planning on going back.

Hello,

Thank you very much for taking time to write your review. Feedback is how we grow and make sure all our guest have a legendary experience when dining with us. I sincerely apologize that we did not make your time a memorable one when you were dining at Durty Nelly’s.
I am glad to hear you enjoyed our Smoke burger and how are bar looks. We shipped everything here from Ireland to give it a true Irish feel. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy our Fish cakes. My apologizes if there may have been a miscommunication on the cakes as we only include Salmon and Haddock in the recipe.
Thank you for your feedback on our music level, we do believe that an Irish pub is all about the conversation and not having to shout while talking with your friends when out dining.
Below is my email address and we would greatly appreciate any future feedback from that night as this will help us grow in the future
eugene@durtynellys.ca

Kind Regards

Eugene McCabe
