Being behind my hotel I went here a couple of times while on a recent trip to Halifax. Decent selection of taps and bottles, I tried John Shipply's brews (Brewed by Garrison) and a couple others. Good crowd even on a Monday night, live music and a decent band too, same one all 3 nights we stopped in but it was a bit of coincidence I think. Our server knew what he was doing and was quite clever and easy to laugh with. I had only had liquid lunches but my lady had bacon wrapped steak and from what I tried it was pretty average, from a vacuum packed frozen package if I had to guess. I was stoked with the prices seemed cheap even for Halifax so that's a selling point. The bar had that party bar smell though, not the tinkle smell of a dive bar but you could tell it had been through some major parties. All smells aside I'd return for another round without thinking twice.

Had a nice dinner here while on business in Halifax. The Split Crow was located right around the corner from my hotel. This is a good sized place, with a fair amount of outdoor seating, a smallish rectangular bar and two levels of dining. I grabbed a spot at the bar.
A pretty good selection of local brews on tap, including the private label John Shippey's house brands. I had a very nice Shippey's Left Coast IPA and a lackluster Propeller Porter.
The food was good. I had fried pepperoni (this was the third menu I saw this item on so it must be a local delicacy of some kind; tasty for sure) and a thai chicken pizza which was delicious. The bartender was helpful and attentive. Prices were quite reasonable. This was one of my favorite stops in town.

The Split Crow is located on the pedestrian section of Granville Street. According to the folks there this place was the site of the original liquor license in New Scotland bequeathed on 7/17/1749.
A multi level pub with seperate dining areas a nice large bar complete and outdoor patio seating in season.
The beer selection consisted of 20 taps mostly of local (Nova Scotia) brew such as Alexander Keith's, Propeller, Rickard's and the house beers of John Shippey ales (contract brewed by Garrison's. The Shippey brews on tap during our visit were Left Coast IPA, White Star Stout, Split Crow Cream, Rafter Red, Bootleggers Nut Brown and John Shippey Select.
We tried three of the Shippey brews and a Propeller Bitter. All were tasty and fresh. With 20 taps to choose from it is hard to be upset!
We had lunch and all was everything was very well done and tasty. Service was prompt and courteous plus one of the managers really took an interest in our "beer questing". It was nice to chat with him over a pint!
All in all a really nice place I am sure we will revisit when in Halifax.

This pub is located downtown, on a pedestrian-only section of Granville St.
It has a good patio and open front windows, which make it a great place to enjoy a nice day.
Beers include the mass-produced stuff, with locals Propeller and Garrison also represented. Also on tap were a selection of John Shippey's beers ( their house brews, brewed by Garrison ) My favourite was the IPA.
Service good, with different people looking after drinks / food.
Good pub fare, with lots of seafood and some unique items.

Just around the corner from O'Carroll's (see my reveiw), the Split Crow is located in the Historic Properties area on the pedestrianized Granville Street, at the sign of the two-headed ("split") crow sits this convivial martitime-themed establishment. According to them, Brewer John Shippey opened a tavern by the same name 250 years ago; in any case, this pub claims some history to it, though not this particular location.
That said, it is a split-level pub with a dining area and bar complete with outdoor seatings that is a nice place to hang out on a nice day. Great people watching and beer drinking.
The beer selection consists of domestic (the ubiquitous Alexander Keith's), import (Guinness), micro (Halifax's own Garrison) and several taps of John Shippey ales (IPA, Amber, Red, etc.)
PLEASE NOTE: This visit took place last year at which time I submitted it for BeerFly - it was rejected. Seeing as it has now been approved for submission, I have posted my reveiw. Go figure.
