I call this a dive in the most endearing way. Yes, they used to have another location that some will argue was better but I like this one equally. With each day, the knew location is gaining the character that makes Tom's loveable. Great service,...More

Tom's is a basic, not frills local kinda place. The food is great and there's a decent selection of local beer. Enjoyed the fish burger and drink. There are a few game boards kicking around if interested. Relaxed and low-key.

This place has good food, and an amazing selection of local beer on tap. It's small, but the atmosphere is a nice one. Good for business travellers, or just hanging out with some friends.

We were the only cigar bar in Atlantic Canada from 1997 to 2006... then the world went non-smoking! We have continued on as a favorite in the city as a neighborhood style bar specializing in Craft Beers from Nova Scotia. Some of the best service in the city and a perennial winner of 'Best Place for a first Date in Halifax'!! Sunday nights are Trivia nights from 7:30 - 9:30. Also try 4 x 5oz craft beer flights for $7! Wednesdays are #wingsdays with Cajun and house wings cheap all day One of the best brunches in the city on Saturday and Sunday!
