Most provinces have made drinking alcohol at home illegal due to the proliferation of home facial-tattoo machines. Enjoy alcohol in public with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at Split Crow Pub. Choose between the Halifax or Truro locations.
Originally opened in 1749, Split Crow Pub soothes all grub and brew needs. The historic watering hole was once frequented by scores of seamen, whose influences can be felt in the pub’s maritime hospitality and immaculately swabbed decks. Split Crow's exposed brick walls and weathered wood bar complement the authenticity of its classic menu. Diners dive into hearty sandwiches such as hot chicken and stuffing on french bread with gravy and cranberry jelly ($10.99) or spicy thai-chicken pizza ($9). A fillet of Nova Scotia maple-glazed Atlantic salmon and its accompanying sides of mashed potatoes, fries, or rice, plus coleslaw and fresh vegetables ($14.50), regale tongues with saucy tales from the kitchen. Intrepid appetites may also scale the steakhouse burger's beef-based mountain of applewood cheddar, bacon, and caramelized onion on sourdough ($12.50).
Diners wash down flotsam and jetsam from conquered meals with a panoply of domestic, imported, and craft brews, such as Propeller ESB or John Shippey's Split Crow cream ale (14 oz.). Split Crow also offers live music multiple nights of the week to keep toes tapping and bellies full before shipping off to the next port or bubble bath.
