Maxwell's Plum is located right across the street from the Residence Inn. It is a great place to sit outside and people watch. It was our last day in Halifax and we hadn't had a chance to try a local favorite, Fried Pepperoni. We ordered...More

Pints are served in a ridiculous chalice that doesn't even remotely resemble a pint glass... What? Why? We paid $11.43 after tax for a pint of beer, (18oz) which is absolutely ridiculous for a regular non-import beer. That's pretty much double what I'd expect to...More

We are so sorry that we did not meet your expectations however our menu clearly states that a 12oz mug is $6.95 and our customers can make it an 18oz grog (chalice) for $2.99 more which would make it 9.94 before taxes.
