Open for more than 30 years, Five Fishermen is well-known for its Alberta Angus beef and exceptional Nova Scotian seafood, including lobster, oysters, and steamed mussels served with four signature sauces. Five Fishermen is divided into a fine dining restaurant upstairs, and a more casual grill area downstairs. The restaurant has won numerous awards from Wine Spectator, recognised for its superb selection of wines. Constructed in 1817, the restaurant’s building originally served as an art school, and was later used as a mortuary to house victims of the Titanic and the Halifax Explosion. This building’s interesting history may explain the frequent reports of supernatural activity made by the restaurant’s staff over the years.
