Our experience at the Press Gang was absolutely fantastic. It really has it all... historical intrigue, live music (jazz), great location, impressive menu, outstanding service, and the most mouth-watering food made by an amazing, creative and conscientious chef. We chose a menu item which was a complete mystery... basically leaving ourselves open to the Chef's creative whim. It included 4 courses... all beautifully presented and delicious beyond words. We had absolutely no regrets about choosing this unique restaurant. It was not just a meal, but a memorable experience which was an absolute highlight during our visit to Halifax.

Caution-Do not order the Drill which is described as the chef and team being creative with the available ingredients. The salad and the seafood stew were great, but the entree was very poorly executed. Maybe my expectations were way too high based on the description, but putting grill marks on half a previously cooked lobster tail and scallop isn’t chef creativity in my book and just over cooks them. The steak which accompanied the surf was OK. Properly cooked to med rare, but not memorable. At $160 for 2 it was way overpriced for a mediocre surf and turf with soup salad and dessert. I usually don’t do negative reviews and talk to the restaurant directly when I’m not satisfied, but I would have liked someone to warn me about this place. I did speak to chef Brian, but not sure he took my suggestion to heart. If you are tempted to order the Drill, be sure to ask the waitperson if the entree is just surf& turf. If you enjoy over cooked seafood, you’ll probably enjoy it. If not, order from the menu. Another curious thing that contributes to my assumption that the restaurant is taking advantage of tourists is the option of charging the bill in either Canadian or US$. What isn’t mentioned is they charge a 4% transaction fee. Which you only find out when you read the fine print on the receipt. This compares to my credit card charging 1%. The restaurant is housed in an old building that is very interesting, but unfortunately the food didn’t match the hype. Service on the other hand was exceptional.

It was a lovely atmosphere, and I liked the food very much.
Just a suggestion: Service was great, but we felt we were being rushed a bit and interrupted a lot. Although service and attention is so important, I felt this was not how I wanted to spend an evening dining out and catching up with friends who were in town from away. Not to sound “picky” but dishes were being removed with food still on them (we were not done) and server made us take last bit of food off the plate so he could take it. It felt like we had to eat fast and furious...

Our biggest problem was parking..... other than that, what a very cool, delightful and delicious experience! The restaurant is tucked into the lower level of the second oldest (circa 1759) building in Halifax, complete with the original fireplace, exposed wooden beams and rough-hewn stone walls. Our server was sweet, informative, accommodating and efficient without being at all intrusive. Our calamari appetizer was hot and crispy and we shared the sesame cabbage slaw that was slightly sweetened with a bit of shaved lychee. I had the halibut over a sort of gnocchi and vegetable ragout and my husband traded risotto for papardelle to pair with his creamy seaford. A full bar and reasonable wine list topped it all off. Comfortably full at 5 pm, the restaurant was getting quite busy by 7. We loved it, will certainly recommend it and should we ever return to Halifax, we will make a point to stop by.

We had a wonderful meal. Everything was fresh and prepared beautifully. The building that housed the restaurant was unbelievable...built in the mid 1700's! It was an outstanding experience.

I really enjoyed the experience of going to the Press Gang . The live music was the plus. My fish was well prepared. The service was not attentive in the beginning but that seems to often come with the territory when one dines alone.

My meal was extremely salty. The waitress offered to get me a new meal but that would mean my wife would eat and then my meal would have been after her. They offered us a free dessert with an exception.

We had great service and good wine. Both of us ordered the lobster dinner. The lobster itself was good as well as the vegetables. The “potato salad” was absolutely terrible. Dried day old roasted potatoes like you would have after saving hash browns for a few days. I wonder if they had even tried it before serving. I would say 55$ for lobster and a few carrots was over priced and you could definitely get the same thing for a better price elsewhere.

The press gang is our favourite spot to have a romantic night out. For the last three years we’ve been celebrating our anniversary at the press gang by ordering “the drill”. The wait staff is always energetic and attentive, and the chef always puts out an incredible meal, one that we talk about for weeks

What a neat place. We had oysters and escargot to start which were amazing. My husband and I are little people so we split the seafood risotto as an entree which was a perfect amount and really highlighted local seafood. For drinks, try the kahuna. And whiskey. Lots of it
