My friend and I decided to give this place a try during. The appetizers are great, so is the bar, the ambiance a‎nd the service. The stairs to the washrooms are a little be of a safety hazard though. On a Friday night, they charge cover, though the music wasn't worth paying for it.

Never went here to eat there, we only went to listen to the band playing on Sunday night, The Grind. The bar gets packed with people dancing to the music of this great band. The vocalist is such an amazing singer and dancer. You can't stop looking at her.

Looking for a place to celebrate an occasion we found this place on line. Called the bar and ordered seats a few days before, we asked about food and were sent the menu (the one which is on this website). What was our shock when after ordering drinks we were told that they don't serve foods! 15 hundred people after... More

Went recently on a Saturday night and based on some of the write-ups was very excited; however, in the end we came away very disappointed. The atmosphere is cold and uninviting. The room lacks decore or warmth and is very bright. While the staff is generally friendly, service is average. The menu is basically a variety of average deep fried... More

I just love this place, and honestly I can not say much for other nights other than SUNDAYS...I frequent this place for years, and everytime I go there my option is on Sundays...The music is lovely and the crowd is amaizing! This little charming little bar, with a lovely exposed brick wall, make my body crave for old school live... More

The last time I went to College Street Bar, I went with five friends on a slow Thursday evening. The staff was friendly, great with recommendations but not pushy. Service was a little slow at times, but not too bad. This wouldn't be a good place to go if you're looking for a relatively quick dinner (less than 1.5 hours)... More
