    Salty's on the waterfront in one of the best restaurants around.
    On the first floor you have a great view over the water, which will bring an automatic romantic setting in the evening.

    I have only positive memories of this restaurant. Bring your money and enjoy!

    Be aware, there's a Downstairs Menu and an Upstairs Menu (the latter is more high class)

    Favorite Dish: Starter: Scrimp coctail

    Menu: Oven baked salmon (melted on my tongue)

    Dessert: One of the pie's

    Salty's On the Waterfront is a famous seafood restaurant located on the broadwalk area of Halifax. I heard the seafood here is great and of course with a good view of the Halifax harbour, but I did not have a chance to try it. More information is at their website below.

    Salty's On the Waterfront: Salty's Sit outside in summer

    The restuarant is a favorite with the locals ( and tourists too). It's located on the waterfront in the historic properties area and has a great view .

    The restarant has more formal upstairs and casual downstairs and outside in summer.

    You can't go wrong if you want good seafood. It's always fresh.

    HINT -- from January to March there are always two for one coupons in the local newspaper..the Chronicle Herald.

    Favorite Dish: As an appetizer. I love the calamari. For a main. Try the halibut with risotto. It's great!!

    Salty's On the Waterfront: What a view!

    Salty's

    Salty's restaurant, with a casual dining area downstairs and a more upscale extensive menu upstairs, has great views of the Halifax Harbour. It's on the boardwalk at Historic Properties with lots of windows and a summertime outdoor patio. The food is great and prices reasonable. Seafood is a specialty but they also have pasta and beef and lots of other good stuff, freshly prepared and served with a smile

    Favorite Dish: see menus on their website

    Salty's On the Waterfront: Go here

    If you want a nice dinner... somewhat romantic, this is a great place to go to get local dishes.

    It has great atmosphere. I suggest getting a table near a window so you can get a great veiw of the waterfron.

    The upstairs seems a little more classy.

    Salty's (2004)

    Dinner at Salty’s was a really good time. We made reservations much earlier in the day for 6 of us and had to negotiate and be flexible on the time to get one of the tables upstairs overlooking the harbour. Guess we didn’t realize at booking time that on a rainy mid-September evening at 8:00 p.m. we wouldn’t be able to see much out the window anyway, except our own reflections in the glass. The downstairs restaurant serves all kinds of pub-style food, while the upstairs specializes in seafood and is slightly fancier.
    However, it was very nice and cozy sitting up there by candlelight with the dark harbour howling in front of us. It was romantic and laid-back at the same time.
    The decor was all maritime, touristy, but very fun nevertheless. The bartender downstairs was funny and friendly while we waited for our table to be ready. My dad laughed with him, and my old man doesn’t like anybody. The waitresses when we got upstairs were very good, helpful and quick. They put the bibs on my brother and me and showed us the proper way to eat a lobster, and what parts not to bother with.

    Favorite Dish: The meal itself was great. The lobster was alright (you can’t go to Nova Scotia and not have lobster as far as I’m concerned), not as hot as I would’ve expected but I was just probably too slow breaking it open, the melted butter helped heat it more. The seafood chowder and crab cakes were amazing. I’d never had crab cakes before; Salty’s was a great introduction.

    Salty's On the Waterfront: Seafood at Salty's

    Brilliant setting in the historic properties right on the Halifax harbour front, with excellent views over the harbour.

    We ate in the upstairs dining room, which was rather more upmarket than we were expecting - Salty's marketing material gives the impression that it is more mainstream/populist than this, but maybe in the off-season (this was November) it is easier to create a more exclusive and refined atmosphere.

    The menu offers an amazing variety of seafood, as well as grills etc.

    I love the waterfront view - the sun sets behind the restaurant so you get to see the vibrant evening colours and teh boats sailing home for the night. A great backdrop to a good meal.

    Favorite Dish: Anything, really.

    On the waterfront.

    Salty´s is one of the excellent seafood reastaurants on the old historic wharfs. Probably the best location in the city overlooking the harbour.

    Favorite Dish: All seafood dishes. Chocolate mousse.
