About The Armview

Since 1951


The Armview Restaurant is one of Halifax’s oldest eating establishments. First incorporated in 1951, the restaurant has undergone a number of changes in both size and appearance, but our commitment to serving the community has remained the same. We are proud to continue this tradition while at the same time offering a new spin on our product.

The Armview


The restaurant was aptly named The Armview in reference to its location on the Northwest Arm. At the time the restaurant first opened in the fifties, the rotary was not yet in existence and there was a popular beach area at Horseshoe Island. Although the landscape may have changed, we have made certain design modifications to the layout of the restaurant to once again focus on our waterside location while at the same time re-incorporate the notion of a community venue which has served The Armview so well in the past.

Our Theme

a refreshing blend of new and old

In short, it is our decided desire to make The Armview a refreshing blend of new and old; a contemporary approach to what in many ways is a Halifax landmark. This theme is apparent not only in the menu of the restaurant but in the atmosphere as well. Some of the brighter furnishings actually date back to the fifties, while the color scheme is a throwback from each of the decades the restaurant has been in operation.
