A great outdoor spot right on Keating Channel. While a number of the tables outside were busy, inside was completely empty - and this place is huge. I was a little nervous since it wasn't busy but the food was actually really good. Not gourmet but really tasty. We had "indian nachos" which were really good, especially if you like... More

This restaurant was close to where we have to park our buses down in Cherry Beach. We came in 3 buses from out of town with a group that went on a boat cruise. This place was recommended by one of the drivers with us, who has eaten there before. Said the food was good. The 3 of us arrived... More

We shared lunch with friends on the patio, at this restaurant on the water in Toronto. The guys had tasty beef and chicken pies, with puff pastry toppings and veggies. My husband said there were large chunks of meat in his beef pie as was our friend's chicken one. One of the women had salmon with extra veggies which she... More

In the summer there are few on the water spots to dine or hang out. Drive and park for free right off the Cherry Beach bridge. Lovely shaded, or sunny patio, right on a channel, view of the city, tasty food. Found the portion of fish and chips to be scant, ask for more chips at least. Very affordable, pleasant... More

I like stopping in here when I go for walks near Cherry beach or to shows at Sound Academy. I really like their patio. Service is a bit slow sometimes. I've ate here once and only had the nachos and they went great with my beer :)

Went to Keatings before the Cavalia show, can literally walk to the show from there, can park your car there or on the street for free and save twenty dollar parking fee. The restuarant is typical bar and grill kind of place but has pool table as well as darts, and a lovely outdoor patio overlooking the channel from the... More

The location makes up for itself as it is on the channel with great outdoor seating. They have a large menu with many tasty choices. Whenever I'v been there it's wings and beer. Done very well!

Thanks to tips from previous TA reviewers, we parked and had supper here walked to Cirque de Soleil. We had fish & chips, the chicken portobello melt sandwich with sweet potato fries, a pint of beer, and a glass of wine. $47 plus tip. I went back for lunch another day to pick up my forgotten credit card! KC burger,... More

Parked here for free before Cirque performance so it was good value, saved $15 parking fee. We sat outside which was comfortable but the service was very slow although they were not that busy. Tried the onion rings which were below average, but our pasta dish and stir fry were both very good. Coffee good but I never understand places... More
