Stopped in with some friends from Ajax and enjoyed such visit. Buddy and I both got the Club sandwich. Prepared well, an quite large, it was interestingly presented on a flat wooden platter. Tasty! The ladies both had fish and chips, and reported them to be above average for pub food. Service was a bit slow, as if they were... More

We've been to this pub on several occasions with friends and the food is great. Staff is professional and always helpful and friendly. The overall vibe is good and atmosphere casual so you can go in a tshirt and shorts - drop by after a game, etc. We sat on the patio and expected smoke as we're non-smokers (can be... More

After spending time at the St Lawrence Market, Sony Centre or any local attraction, this place offers really good drinks and food! Outdoor patio allows for people watching and soaking up the sun. Blood orange martins are awesome! Staff is helpful with suggestions for trying new concoctions!

The only thing better than watching the Raptors play was visiting Fionn MacCool's Pub with my Cousin Laura. It was the last Saturday in March and the patio was not out front yet, so we sat right at the bar. We were immediately greeted and served by the bartender. They have this huge "Fusion" tap at the bar that holds... More

One of many spots along the Esplanade that have outdoor seating. Went for dinner here with friends. A little cooler evening so we were easily able to find a seat on the patio. Our server was attentive, the food was excellent and the drinks were great. Overall a great atmosphere - happy we chose to stop here for dinner!

Went there with my husband and out of town guests for some drinks. They had a nice outdoor patio but all you can smell is sewage, quite gross. Sign stated 5 dollar domestic beers so naturally we went in. Asked what she recommended for domestic and ordered. When we received the bill we were charged 7 dollars per beer and... More

Stopped in after a day of sightseeing. Beautiful day called for outdoor seating and this stop is across the street from our hotel. My husband ordered French onion soup and I decided to try Shepherd's pie. Neither had any taste or flavor. Our server was friendly but not attentive. But the cocktails were cold and the price was right.

This place is a classic example of a traditional style pub. The décor and the menu mix together in a way that always makes you feel like you're at your pal's place just kicking back all warm and cozy. The beer selection is pretty decent; again, very traditional. I will be back in the summer for patio season with my... More
