We first visited this establishment 31 years ago and have returned constantly since. It has changed but it needs to in order to stay current not living off the successes in the past. We still get great service and our meals never disappoint as we know the top menu items after all these years. We try to take each experience... More

This restaurant has special meaning as this is were we went on a Friday night when my husband and I were dating! Many years ago. The restaurant has evolved over the years but still offers great food and good service. A new twist with the jerk/curry but loved it!! Keep it up for years to come!

A party of five on a Saturday night. Foods ordered were: NY steak, sirloin, fish and chips, seafood pasta, and burger. The NY steak with mashed potato and steamed vegetables was alright. The sirloin with french fries was a bit overcooked. Fish and chips was good value. Seafood pasta was not too small in portion. Mr. Perfect Burger with buffalo... More

When you go to a touristy chain restaurant, you're not expecting to get your socks knocked off - but this place left me wanting to rename it "Mr. Green gee I wish I'd spent money some place else". First off, lose the descriptor "fresh juice" on your margarita's - you're not fooling anyone with that dollar store mix. Second, the... More

Maybe I made the wrong choice. My experience was to receive average quality food. Service very friendly and surroundings really pleasant but I do go to a restaurant to eat and would like to appreciate the food too.

Everytime I come to Toronto, I try and eat at Mr. Greenjeans. I enjoy their appetizer macaronie & cheese which can feed two people as a meal. The service is great and the staff are very friendly.

This place seems to get worse with each passing year. You’re paying for the location, and that’s about it. No one in our group was impressed with the meal. Do not get the veggie burger. In the past it was good, now it tastes like wet cardboard. Even with the Entertainment Guide discount, this was not worth it. The ‘Hostess’... More

Wow, our friendly waiter confirmed that it has indeed been open for 37 years and it has outlasted all of its competition. Why, we wondered? He suggested that Mr. Greenjeans has continued to alter its menu to conform to changing tastes. Makes sense whereas at Tobey’s, you got a hamburger, period. So long Tobey’s. Going up the escalator from the... More

Once our waiter realized our party of 6 was only ordering less costly items, his demeanor seemed to change and we barely saw him the rest of the visit. Good thing too as the food was nothing to rave about. To cut costs, instead of french fries, they give you a small handful of potato chips. Wow, that's classy. If... More
