Good place to chill just out of the Village

Cheap eats to Mid range - for a place that is primarily a bar the food can get pricey. We have a "table" and our waitress is hilarious! There are a lot of choices, something for everyone; daily specials, new menu items every now and then. Between 4 and 6pm the have a "Spirit's Escape Plan... read more

The pull pork taco was not fresh. They serve meat that is borderline rotten. If you are gonna order anything, fries and beer only. Disgusting!

I ordered the Chicken Biryani at the bar and was watching a basketball game on the big TV. The friendly staff offered to turn off the other TV sounds and turn mine up, for my personal enjoyment. I said thanks and enjoyed my visit to this friendly place. The dinner was good too.

Been here more times then I've got sticky chicken wing saucy fingers. Great selection of beer. Awesome summer patio. Service is always friendly and attentive. Not much else I can say then to tell you to go check it out yourself.

Great pub grub and value. Friendly staff who were efficient and shared some homey information about Toronto, in specific, and, Canada, in general. Try the Steak and Mushroom pie...good dish.

I ate here on my first night in Toronto and found the food to be decent and affordably priced. I had the tomato cheddar soup, poutine and panna cotta. I wouldn't say any of it was amazing, but it was better than average and afforable. The pub itself has a nice relaxed atmosphere.

We met at this place for cocktails before our dinner at onoir which is a block away. Very accommodating for a party of 8. Waitress was fun to deal with. Didn't stay for the karaoke but I'm sure it would be a blast

Words can't describe how awful my experience was here. To rude staff to food that wasn't fit for a dog. Never got one pleasant word from our waiter and he had rolled his eyes at as when we asked a question as if we were a bother to them

First trip to Toronto, we had two meals here - the first visit mainly due to close proximity to our hotel but felt it it was well worth a return visit Good atmosphere - the food more than acceptable, what we would describe in uk as great "pub grub" Good service - we visited around 8pm and food arrived promptly...

This bar and grill looks quite nondescript from the outside and we walked past several times without a second look, but on our last night we ventured in to find it is really welcoming and nicely presented. It has a really varied menu which is very well priced. Nice choice of draught beers and some lovely cocktails! We enjoyed some... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
