Open Mic Night at Millstone King’s Wharf

The maritimes are known for kitchen parties, ugly sticks, sing alongs, fiddle jams and gathering around song. ¬†We wanted to offer that incredible vibe to our customers at the Millstone and are currently running an OPEN MIC NIGHT at our oceanside King’s Wharf location. ¬†There is a small stage surrounded by a beautiful bar area and intimate tables with candles and drinks. ¬†Come see what it’s all about Thursday nights from 8 – 11pm

Host and skilled musician Michael Haley will take the stage and engage the crowd in his incredible repertoire of songs from Oasis to Blue Rodeo to the Tragically Hip and more!  He will also open the stage to allow other local musicians to share their talent with the crowd.  It is fun and unique and an opportunity to hear new voices in this great community.  Come show them your support and have a great night doing it.

If you are a musician who’d like to take a shot on our stage, please email Michael Haley at MichaelHaley04@gmail.com to see if he has a slot open for you.



Keeping up the vibe this Holiday Season we are thrilled to announce a special concert with the incredible Eddie Cummings on Saturday December 17th.  Mark your calendars and call to book your table.  902-404-8053

Eddie Cummings hails from Mabou, Cape Breton. He started playing publicly in 2003 as a solo artist. Eddie is a vocalist that also plays acoustic, and electric guitars, as well as Harmonica. In 2011, his debut single “Lost and Found” made its way to the top position on the East Coast Countdown and held that position for 7 weeks. Blending a style of country and rock, Cummings’ sound has something for everyone. ¬†–Eddie Cummings

What would you do with a $100 Bar Tab?

As we round the corner on two years on the waterfront at Millstone King’s Wharf we are constantly told by new customers that they had never been in before….didn’t even know we were there! ¬†Once they settle in to their cozy table they often¬†comment on how great it is to see the water on all three sides of the restaurant.

It’s been a crazy first 22 months in that beautiful spot with¬†many interruptions and restrictions to our operations but we are happy to have taken the plunge and excited about the busy holiday season and more. We are even booking weddings on the water! ¬†What a stunning location to tie the knot and have a party. ¬†If you’re interesting in options to host a wedding, retirement party, birthday, staff event, holiday gathering or more please contact Megan@millstonepublichouse.com

Live Music at King’s Wharf – Brooklyn Blackmore

Last Thursday we enjoyed¬†Live Music on the Waterfront for the first time and it was a huge success. ¬†The customers sang along and enjoyed a beautiful candlelit evening on the water with friends and family. ¬†At our beautiful King’s Wharf restaurant there are cozy nooks where the music is a little quieter, and barstools where you can get front and centre for the experience. ¬†We hope you will come and check it out.

This Thursday October 27th we welcome award winning singer songwriter Brooklyn Blackmore.

Brooklyn Blackmore delivers captivating lyrics, dynamic vocals, and powerful mel

odies with a vintage feel. Her sound reflects influences of the old-school mystical style of Stevie Nicks and modern artists like Miley Cyrus. Blackmore won the Global Country Star Search in 2016, and Female Vocalist of the Year and Female Entertainer of the Year at the North American Country Music Association International in 2017

Come enjoy a night out with us. ¬†We would love to serve you a great meal and have you stay for live music. ¬†To book a table call us at 902-404-8053 or plan to come early and grab a great seat. ¬†We have FREE street parking and gated parking available to our customers at King’s Wharf.

Burger Week for a great cause!

We are proud to be participating in this year’s HFX Burger Week. ¬†With $2.00 from each burger sold going to Feed Nova Scotia we knew we had to knock this one out of the park. ¬†Our kitchen teams put together an absolutely incredible burger that bursts with flavour and celebrates the maritimes.

Pump up the Jam Burger:

  • Nova Scotia Blueberry Bacon Jam
  • PEI Smoked Cheddar
  • New Brunswick Radler Aioli
  • Pickled Red Onion
  • Fresh Arugula
  • Beef and Chorizo house made burger patty.


We have sold more than 1,000 of these delicious burgers and hope to sell many more before the end of Burger week.

Come try it before it is gone!

The Millstone Public House Victoria Day hours

As we enjoy this beautiful holiday Monday we may wish to raise a glass to the woman responsible for this National long weekend. Her name is Queen Victoria…and until 2015 when Queen Elizabeth stole the title she was the longest reigning monarch in England. With a total of 63 years on the throne this must be viewed as a rather large accomplishment in a time when many people did not live past 40. The period of her reign was known appropriately as the Victorian Era which is hallmarked by strict standards of personal morality and dress.

Victoria was born on May 24th, 1819 and was the fifth in line to the throne. When all four of her brothers died without heirs she ascended to the throne following a rather sad and lonely childhood. She was an 18 year old Queen, married to her first cousin when someone tried to kill her during her first pregnancy! She went on to have eight children and many more assassination attempts all while ruling an empire until her death in 1901 at the age of 81.

Her legacy includes the gradual establishment of a modern constitutional monarchy and reforms to the voting system which increased the power of the House of Commons and reduced the rule of the house of Lords. This forever changed the role of the British Monarchy and informs the way in which the current Queen interacts with the Prime Minister. In 1867, Walter Bagehot wrote that the monarch only retained “the right to be consulted, the right to encourage, and the right to warn.”

What a lady. What a life.

Both Millstone locations will be CLOSED on Monday May 21st.

Remember, life opens up when you do. So pull up a barstool and have some fun.

Superbowl and our second Birthday!

On Sunday February 4th our little pub will turn 2 years old. ¬†(Yes, we opened on February 7th, 2016 but it was on Superbowl Sunday so we’re rolling with that because it’s fun) ¬†What an incredible first few years we have had. ¬†Through a lot of learning curves, a few missteps and many wonderful days and nights we’ve grown into the community pub we dreamed of being. ¬†We can not thank you enough for welcoming us into your lives and giving us the opportunity to employ 40 local service industry rock stars..it is a dream come true! ¬†We invite you to come raise a glass with us in celebration of this 2 year milestone at the Millstone Public House.

We’d also like to invite you to come cheer on the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots as they battle for victory at the Superbowl. ¬†So many have said the Eagles will take it this year…but then again the Patriots have their golden boy Mr. Bunchen ūüėČ . ¬†The game will be played at both locations so pick your favourite Millstone and your favourite team and get in on the action.

Come as you are….

When we dreamed of opening a neighbourhood pub we imagined a place that would feel like a home away from home. ¬†A public place to chill out and enjoy some down time with friends & family or all on your own. ¬†Every square inch of the Millstone Public House has a pinch of character and offers a gentle nod to the importance of play. ¬†Yes, we love sports, but we also love the way people come together around them. ¬†Whether lacing up or cheering from the stands we all have a connection to the game. ¬†It’s about having fun and doing something just for the joy of it. ¬†It’s time off the devices and we love it! ¬†We see the pub as an extension of that; a great part of a day well spent.

We designed the bar top to be a spot where the rising of the glass or the raising of the eyebrow would be seen as¬†a moment to savour the good stuff of life. ¬†Our food is crafted with fresh ingredients and made by a team that understand how to bring the natural flavours out in all their intended fullness. ¬†The drinks are well chilled and poured by a bartender who ¬†loves what they do. ¬†Wait staff are selected not only for their experience and skill, but for their capacity to make people feel welcome. ¬†It’s been such fun to build our little family and we are deeply proud of the work they do everyday. ¬†They invite you to ‘come as you are’ and hope that you’ll stay a while.

No, we are not perfect. ¬†But, we genuinely¬†aspire to being your spot, and we’ll do everything we can to make the Millstone your go to Public House!

Now with two convenient locations

A labour of love…

After proudly serving this great community for just over a year and a half it must be said that we love what we do. ¬†When we began to dream about the Millstone, back in the fall of 2015, we imagined a place that would welcome everyone and make lone diners and groups of 30 feel at home in our Public House. ¬†The softness of the leather booths, the roughness of the antique rowing paddles, the smoothness of the 300 year old bar top….it’s all meant to give our valued customers a sense of calm and a pinch of nostalgia. ¬†The muted sports theme is a call to remember what it means to play and an invitation to do it again.

We are very happy to announce that we have been offered the chance to breathe life into another Millstone Public House, this one in Bedford. ¬†Cindy Toner and Jason Plotsky, owners of the new Sante Centre, dined with their young family at our pub back in the spring of this year. ¬†They loved it, they felt it…they got it and something inspired them to ask if we would be interested in developing the last vacant space in their building. ¬†Humbled by their offer, we began to imagine another labour of love coming together across the water. ¬†It felt both exciting and daunting but once again the faces staring out from our antique sports photos said ‘do it, you are here but once”. ¬†We leaned in and said yes.

From that moment to this one we’ve been hard at work pulling it all together. ¬†It must be warm, welcoming and inspiring. ¬†The food must comfort and wow our guests. ¬†From paint colours, to unique decorations and the padding in the chairs, it’s all been carefully considered to invite our new friends to dine with us. ¬†We are grateful for the chance and excited at what’s to come!

The official grand opening is scheduled for¬†November 18th and will be celebrated in style by the entire Sante building. ¬†Our doors are likely to crack open before then though. ¬†Like proud parents, we can’t wait to introduce our new baby. ¬†Stay tuned here for details.

To everyone who has raised a glass at the bar, a burger at a table and an eyebrow in conversation at the Millstone Public House we want to ¬†take a moment to sincerely thank you for inviting us into your lives and giving us this chance to do what we love to do! ¬†Cheers to many more…
