I was told to check out evans for the fresh fish and what I got was the worst clams and chips I have ever had. Clams were rubbery, tasted old, and slathered in grease. I hope this was just a one off but damn! I thought it was against the law to serve fish that bad in Nova Scotia.

A trip to Alderney Landing is never complete without a quick stop at Evan's Seafood for some out of this world Fish and Chips. The fact that most of the menu is Gluten-free and that the friers are only used to cook these Gluten-free menu options is simply a bonus for me considering my allergy. The staff are exceptionally friendly... More

Its all about the fresh fish and Evan's got it. Clams are off the hook! Sit outside on a picnic table and enjoy the harbour view of Halifax. Perfect for a sunny summer day

The chowder was very tasty but not as thick as some chowders. It came with a warm from the oven bun, even at 2 in the afternoon. The fish has a light batter that has a great herb flavour, without being overpowering. Good value at $8 for a 1 PC and chips or $11 for 2 pc.

Id heard their fish tacos were very good, but never seemed to be there when they were offered (Friday special, perhaps?) Very tasty, not a huge serving, but a great light lunch Despite the Spartan eating area, they do a good job with it and will bring your food to you with water, if you ask. Get there before the...

Restaurant as advertised. Nothing fancy , great staff, great food. Nice view of the harbour. Very casual dining. Check opening hours before you go.

Great service, and quality meal, that punches above its weight for the location. Location would suggest a real take out chip stand feel, but this is quality food. It might cost a little more for a filling lunch, but it's worth it. You can get your fish GLUTEN FREE, EGG FREE, and DAIRY FREE if you wish! That's amazing accommodation.... More

This is a very informal place, you order at the counter, they bring the food. That being said, the service was good. I had the lobster poutine and would eat it again and again! My husband had a scallop sandwich, he said it was good but he had food envy!

This is a simple ferry ride over from Halifax to Dartmouth, they are located right at the ferry landing. Good gluten free fish and chips (using Schoolhouse bread crumbs, without sorghum)! Beware if you don't tolerate sorghum, the cake and the clam strips are in a different bread crumb mixture that has sorghum. Weather was great to sit outside and... More
