Great $3.95 caesars that didn't disappoint. Enjoyed a great brunch. Friendly service. Seems like an evening spot.

We had a lovely Irish waitress who was very helpful & super nice. Loved our North Carolina accents! The food was good. The burgers were huge with great flavor and the shepherd's pie was was soooo filling.

Breakfast one day - could barley eat it it (banana waffles). Dinner a few days later - can't rate because after 1 hour of waiting we had to cancel to catch a flight. Service - terrible. No explanation or apology for not getting our meals after an hour, even when people around us were all served theirs, even those who... More

So quick and easy out the door. Salad was drenched with too much dressing but was tasty - side of chicken better than most choices. Shephard's pie were large servings, Seafood pie looked great. Appetizers were large. Staff were pleasant, price point not too bad.

On a recent visit to Toronto we had lunch on the pation at Fionn's.The Shepherds Pie and the Yorkies( Shepherds Pie sliders) were very tasty.Combined with Barking Squirl beer on a Sunny Friday afternoon hit the spot. The patio's on the Espanade were full and the atmosphere was friendly and the service was quick..WE would go back.

This pub became our local for the week. The staff are so nice and make a real effort to chat and make you feel relaxed. There is a good choice of beers and food. The meals were really nice and good portions. We called in here most days and were always made to feel very welcome. Overall I would highly... More

The staff seemed happy with their work and this came over as a friendly attitude. While I accept that we were a party of 8 (6 adults and 2 children), and they were fairly busy, the time between placing our order and receiving it could have been shorter. I would not suggest, for one minute, that this was a deliberate... More

OK, the beer is bit overpriced, but the food and service is great. The atmosphere is nice. Very traditional. For a quick lunch with excellent daily specials, this is a good spot.

I am not a big fan of faux-Irish taverns here in Toronto. They all seem made at the same factory. And thats OK if all you're after is a cold beer and bland-but-acceptable pub grub. Sports on big screen TVs (plural), sweet young things dressed in kilts (keep up the image brand) plus indoor/outdoor seating. Having a live guitarist entertaining... More

We happened upon this place while exploring the area around our hotel,being a lovely day we sat outside,great for people watching. I don't like seafood or chicken so I am often short on choices but here the opposite was the case & I was spoilt for choice! Eventually my Wife had the lamb pie,the picture in the menu is a... More
