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

The fare here is consistently good and the service is fast and efficient. The most attractive feature is the handy parking in wintertime at the Marriott next door. Surprisingly empty downstairs part of the establishment for a Friday night a couple weeks before Christmas which was perfect for us as we were interested in engaging in quiet conversation with a...

There is no question that if you get a table upstairs next to a window, there is a great view especially on the front side which let's you glance up and down Halifax Harbor. However, there only a limited number of these tables and they are very hard to get. The service is quite good as well BUT the big... More
