I enjoy the finer things in life, such as chicken wings and beer. I’ve created this blog to share my experiences with fellow wing lovers. My goal is to try as many different wing establishments as possible while rating each one. Feel free to leave any comments/suggestions. Enjoy!
So this is it, the 50th review, a milestone of
sorts. It took around 18 months to make
it this far, and I plan to keep going for many more reviews to come. I’ve certainly had my fair share of wings
during that time, and I’m glad to say the 50th ended on a very
I stumbled upon Stayner’s Wharf on Sunday as a
fluke. I was walking around looking for
somewhere to try some wings for my 50th review and the first two
places I attempted to enter had their doors locked. So I continued on my journey and ended up at
We received menus and I noticed wings were not an
option. I asked our waitress and she
advised it was still the brunch menu however after a quick check with the chef
she advised wings would be served, off to a good start after all. Wings are $9.95/pound and there is no wing
Breading: 5/5 – The wings were well coated with a nice
breading that you could rip off in big pieces and dunk in the sauce.
Overall quality: 4/5 – The chicken had a delicious fresh
taste to it. I though the wings may have
been marinated however I was told that they weren’t. The only issue is that they were a bit on the
Sauce selection: 1/5 – The wings come with three sauces
on the side – BBQ, honey mustard and ranch.
The presentation was really nice.

Very nice presentation.
Service: 5/5 – The service was incredible from the moment
we sat down until the moment we left. Our
waitress was very personable, checked on us frequently and drink refills were

Average size wing.
Overall rating: 3.6/5
I would definitely go back to this place for some
wings. Sometimes I dislike my rating
system. I feel the rating should be higher
but the lack of sauces is what took it down.
Either way I’ve been rating places with this same scale or over a year,
so it’s only fair.
I plan on having a wing celebration in Halifax in the
very near future to celebrate the 50 review mark. Needless to say there will be some excellent
wings to be consumed as well as a few beverages. If you’re a big wing fan and would be
interested in attending, send me a DM on Twitter or an email to HalifaxWingman@gmail.com and I’ll
get back to you.
I also want to say thanks to everyone who has ever consulted
my site before making an informed wing decision, I’m really glad to know there
are so many wing enthusiasts out there.
As always, feel free to leave any comments/suggestions or new places I should
try, there is certainly no shortage of wing establishments around.
