after work to meet friends

Standard Irish Pub Grub. Tasty, with big portions. Well trained staff. Right on Yonge St. Been there a few times after work and was never disappointed.

I visit this place every time I travel to Toronto. Location is perfect for downtown. Friendly service and very good food. It is more of an upscale pub. I will be back.

We stopped by for a drink and some appetizers. Everything was excellent and the staff was friendly and service was quick. Loved it here. Loved the old building and the gorgeous high ceiling.

Went here for dinner with my in-laws and it was great. The food was amazing, almost two much! 3 of us needed doggy bags, we couldn't come close to finishing! But there was no way we weren't taking them home because the food was delicious!

I dined here while in Toronto for business. The waitstaff was very friendly. I didn't have a long wait for a table. The food was good and was delivered quickly. Perfect place for dinner after a long day at work.

This place gets pretty busy by the end of the work-day. The foreign beers on tap aren't over-priced and the waiters are friendly and efficient. The major selling point of this place though is the building in which it is located. The main drinking/eating area is located in one of Toronto's old banks. The ceilings are arched and held where...
