Turf Lounge is Bay Street's most upscale sports bar and restaurant. It is also the ideal venue for meetings, private dining and events. The compelling dining room is offset by the sleek and modern decor of an impressive and airy bar with high vaulted ceilings and an Art Deco-era bank facade, creating a memorable destination for lunch, dinner, and after-work cocktails. Turf also offers two elegant private rooms which provide a cool yet sophisticated atmosphere perfect for your next corporate or social event.

I love this place and can't figure out why it isn't packed. Its an off track betting location affiliated with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. The bar is gorgeous with lovely high ceilings. The food is great. The entrees change but get the short ribs if they're on the menu. Had many meals here. When in doubt, have the... More

Recent changes at Turf and those who dine here will enjoy their meal. The secret is the new guy in the kitchen. Tom Brodi who is a top chef in Toronto who has just landed at Turf. Sure you can bet on horses but that is really not the reason to go. It is all about the food now. Ask... More

Great drinks and atmosphere here! Went here with coworkers and enjoyed an excellent variety of sliders and appetizers! Enjoyed the succulent lamb sliders with delicious cheese and many other great dishes that you should try here! Don't remember a very large beer selection but this may be part of the company package that was bought for our holiday party, and... More

This was the first place I went for a beer in the city and I have always enjoyed a visit. Good range of beers, good service and decent food. Not to mention excellent sports coverage! Great for a business lunch or a beer after work as they can certainly turn food around quickly whilst maintaining quality!

Visited Turf for the first time for lunch. Very good atmosphere and service overall, the only reason for the 3 starts is based on the food I ordered. I ordered the fish tacos and was surprised to see what I got. It was 3 individual lettuce leafs' with 3 small pieces of fish on each. I was surprised at seeing... More
