The patio is nice on a hot summer day. I ordered the turkey burger and it came with Brie cheese and avocado (I actually commented on the fact that it was a lot of avocado to my friend, usually restaurants can skimp with it). I also added the extra fried egg on top. I forgot to let the waiter know... More

I have food allergies. I cannot have soy or shellfish. The manager tried to accommodate me, (she was sweet) and offered me a fruit cup on the house (she didn't have to do that) but there was not one food item on the menu that did not have soy. The steamed vegetables and boiled potatoes have chicken broth (MSG and... More

My son and I took my Aunt and Uncle for supper, their choice, on October 13th, 2013. My son loves the PB and has eaten at the one downtown when there for industrial events. We were initially left standing at the door waiting to be seated in a less than busy restaurant. Finally got seated and a seemingly nice waitress... More

We've being going to the Pickle Barrel for over 30 years. When we lived in Toronto it was the one in the Atrium on Bay. Now when we visit Toronto we come to this one, on Leslie. The menu has lots of choices. Still has favourites from when we started but is regularly updated. We've had various members of the... More

We went to this location of the Pickle Barrel twice in our visit to Toronto and enjoyed it very much. Both times I was with three of my daughters and my mother, they have something for all ages (if anything there is too great a selection). We loved the decor which is sort of friendly funky and the service was... More

I used to be forced to come here all the time as a child with my family. When I grew to realize how bad the food was I just refused. Once in awhile I have no choice but to eat here and each and every time is pretty gross. Its like they defrost the meals and put them in the... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times. Every time we had to wait for at least 10 minutes after seated at a table before our server came to greet us. I believe it was poor coordination between the usher and the servers. The food quality and taste was average. Large portion - You can eat half of your... More

Our family group, including four children, had lunch here two weeks ago. We thought the décor was great and our booth very conducive to relaxing and chatting. The food, however, was another story. Everything was lousy, from the kids meals to the pasta. The "adult" grilled cheese sandwich was two slices of unmelted process cheese on three slices of white... More

Have been going to the Pickle Barrel at this location since I was a little girl. I laughed when I read the review below about it looking 80's. Growing up this restaurant was covered in bright colours, giant pickles, jungle murals. Have never thought 80's when I visit it now. HUGE menu! If you have never been it can take... More
