Sure thing at Seamus David's Pub

Seamus David's Pub opened up in Dartmouth Crossing very recently so I thought this would be a great place to stop by and try some new wings at a brand new establishment.  It's a cozy little pub with an inviting feel to it.  I was happy with the wings but I was glad I wasn't in a hurry to head elsewhere.  

A pound of wings will run you $10.00.  I heard they will be having a wing night however they're unsure what the prices will be when that happens.  I'd assume wings would be half price on wing night, but you never know.

Breading: 4/5 – The wings had a fairly light and crispy breading. The dry Cajun added some extra flavour.  
Light and crispy breading.
Overall quality: 4/5 – The chicken had a great fresh taste and was free from any darkish spots. They also lacked in the greasy category which was good.  

Sauce selection: 2/5 - Sauces include mild, medium, hot and Cajun.  I assumed the Cajun would be in liquid form however I was pleased to find out it was actually dry Cajun, that one word makes a difference.  Needless to say I went with dry Cajun on and hot on the side.  You’ll also receive "bleu" (using quotes because it looks odd to me, but apparently that's how it's spelt) cheese automatically with your wing order.  I'm not sure if it's just me or not but I've been seeing "bleu" cheese as an option a lot more these days.  Personally I'm not a fan of it, but I'm sure some people enjoy it.  Maybe it's to dip the carrot sticks in if anyone eats those?  I'm not sure.  

Service: 3/5 – Our waitress was very polite however the food seemed to take a bit longer to arrive than I would have expected.  I was fairly thirsty when I entered and gulped my drink down pretty quick.  A refill offer would have been nice. 

Size: 3/5 – The wings were barely average sized.  There were a few fairly small wings and some other larger ones.  
Not a large flattie.
Overall rating: 3.2/5

It's nice to see a little pub addition to Dartmouth Crossing.  It would be a great spot to stop in for a bit if you need a break while doing some running around in Dartmouth Crossing.  I just hope the wings will arrive a bit quicker on my next visit.  



    Blue cheese is a cheese that has mold in it on purpose. I personally think its disgusting. A lot of people believe it complements "buffalo" or other hot sauces perfectly to help cool down the heat.

    Just so you know what it is...

    1. I'm not a fan either, and I can't understand why it seems to be coming a standard with an order of wings these days. I'd rather see an automatic side of Frank's RedHot Sauce.

    2. the taste of the blue cheese can vary a lot from place to place as well. I had it with wings at Your Father's Moustache and didn't like it at all. Somewhere else where I was eating wings though, at Bubba Ray's I think, I enjoyed it a lot.

    3. Interesting. My next goal will be to figure out if blue cheese only accompanies wings when vegetables are present or not.

    4. I think, just maybe Joey Diaz has somethin to do with it.

      It's probably like "the original" way to do wings.

  2. I love a ranch sauce with my hot wings, the creamy spicy is so delish!

  3. This place is right around the corner from me and I've been meaning to try it.

    I love Blue Cheese with my wings!

  4. The Bleu Cheese is an American thing far as I can tell. When I visit my father in Virginia we often go for wings and it is standard at all the places I've been to to offer you either Ranch or Bleu Cheese. It is much more rare to be offered it with wings in Canada.

  5. Personally I love a sweet bar-b-que sauce with the option to dip in bleu cheese. It gives a nice sweet and salty flavour. It is something I picked up when I lived in the stated, but damn is it good.

  6. So where do i come to find the best wings??? wingman??? what is the name of your establishment???? oh...wait now, you dont own one!!! Enough said!!!!! Get real and have some respect for people that work hard in a hot kitchen all day instead being a complete asshole LOSER that sits at his computer rating WINGS....really???? get a a girlfriend, dog, cat, something....A LIFE!!!

    1. Hi, thanks for the feedback.

      To answer your first question - right now the best place for wings around Halifax is the Alehouse, they are delicious, you should try them, if you happen to go on their wing night you'll be lucky enough to get ten wings and a pitcher of beer for only $13, it's a pretty good deal.

      You are correct, I do not have a wing establishment of my very own, nor do I want one, I just going around to a bunch of different spots and try the wings, it's fun and I really enjoy it.

      I do have a lot of respect for people that work hard in a hot kitchen all day, I don't think any of my reviews contradict that, please let me know if I'm incorrect on that one. Maybe I am an asshole loser that sits at my computer rating wings, but that's what I've been doing for the last few years, and plan on doing it for a few more (you may be surprised how many places there are around that sell wings). I apologize if I offended you at all, you must be as passionate about your wings as I am. Let me know where your favorite wing establishment is and I'll be sure to give them a try. Thanks.
