Me and the guys from work go here every few weeks, we get the same thing every time because straying from what we love might lead to disappointment. The Bacon Cheeseburger with the works/fries and a drink for about $7-8. The bacon is usually many pieces not just one or two. When you arrive you take a chit from the... More

We ate at Westcliffe July 28, 2016. I grew up in the area so was familiar with Westcliffe, but I had not been in to the restaurant in over 30 years so the owners had changed. Honestly though the food, the atmosphere - everything about the place is still the same. It is like it just stayed the same all... More

Drop by for the great food! This restaurant is not fancy, but has a great feel. The portions are generous and delicious. I had a burger and fries. This is good old fashioned fast food that is hard to find these days. Write what you want on a piece of paper that is handed to you and they'll cook it.... More

Great food, at a very cheap price. Service is friendly and feels very old fashioned. Can't say enough good things about this diner.

Reliably consistent food. Decent portions, lowest prices in the city. Westcliffe is a timeless classic with cops and construction workers and hipsters and professionals and locals and downtowners all coming for quick, cheap and satisfying eats. Great job Westcliffe!

I have been to Westcliffes many times. I no longer live in Halifax, but we make sure to go there every time we are in the city. The food is diner food, made by Bev on her grill, in front of you! Different members of my family have different favourites there, from the bacon cheeseburger, fish and chips, and my... More

It's a cute little restaurant located at the corner of Bayers Road and Oxford Street. What I normally get is a bacon cheeseburger platter. They always make sure there's loads of bacon it. Definitely compared to the amount you pay. I love supporting local business so I'll be back.

Bev and Taylor are the best. They take a real interest in their clients. Once you get to know Taylor, he is a riot. You write your own food order. The prices are the best in town and the food is great. The regulars which my family and I are clean up our dishes. We pass around the condiments to... More

My best friend's brother is a regular here and I had only heard great things about this place. Today I decided to check it out. It is like stepping back in time - including the prices!! I had a grilled ham & cheese sandwich and a milk shake - taxes in, it was under $7.00. The special of the day... More
