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

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!
