Definitely worth another try

My friend and I had a late lunch here in Saturday. I had read on Toronto.com that this was one of the top 10 places in the city for Mac and Cheese - it sounded like it was worth a try and in our neck of the woods (east end). Things I loved about the experience - ambiance is excellent... read more

We shared dinner at the Auld Spot in a booth. Despite the place being very busy, the two of us were impressed that we were not hurried over the 3 hours that we occupied the booth. And despite the packed house,we could actually hear each other speak. The fish and chips was better than average. Desert menu was limited to... More

Run by a great bunch of guys; food is great as a bonus especially oysters and the fried chicken ... The atmosphere is great either a seat at the bar or in one of the booths

We live in the neighbourhood and this is one of our favourite go-to spots for a quick bite, nice drinks and wine/beer, and a casual, fun atmosphere. The food is good, with a wide enough range of choices. I am a fan of the mussels. Great drinks list...the Penicillin seemed to work for me last evening ;) This is a... More

The food and drink here are deserving of the gastropub moniker, but the place is just too popular! You can hardly have a conversation and often it's standing room only, so if that's OK then you're fine.

I live just down the street from Auld Spot, but we never really go in and frequent another pub down the way (there are plenty to chose from). However, i's a good spot with a nice warm vibe, a food menu that isn't overly traditional and is a notch higher than your average "pub-grub". The beer on draught is mostly... More

Really love this local spot for a night out with friends. On this occasion we had the fish and chips - always good - but we have had the oysters which are also good. My wife (she's the one with the taste) said that the fish tasted a little funny. Maybe the oil they used to cook the fish. I... More

We went there with family and friends. The oysters were excellent and so was the rest of the meal and the sweet potato fries. Great selection of beers but we missed a nice Guinness. The music was a little bit too loud. We'll definitely go back (when there won't be any screaming toddlers around). Not really the place to go... More

I enjoy the Auld Spot. It's a great place for a casual meal and some drinks with friends. The burgers are good and fries are excellent. A good place for conversation because music is not too loud. Thought it calls itsself a "pub" its more of a restaurant and the wait staff really push the food.

This local pub, and I say local even though it's located on the busy Danforth, is a wonderful spot for good beer, attentive service and great food. This is not your average pub fare, so if your looking for nachos and wings walk a few blocks east. Though they do have Drummies, a drumstick version of wings, this is as... More
