Pregame and After Game Location

Smack in the middle of Liberty Village, this Irish pub is a great spot for having a few pints and good grub before or after attending an event on the Exhibition grounds. If there is a TFC game on and probably the Argos next year, it fills up quickly. Food quality and sizes are decent, and they had... read more

Took a short walk from the apartment we are renting into the heart of Liberty Village. Seating out on the patio was like a café in Chelsea, NY. The calamari was delicious and the Nacho with ground beef was great. Drinks were weak compared to the mixed drinks in the US, that little splash of extra. Waitstaff was pleasant and... More

This place is in trouble...last few times I've been there it's very quiet, meanwhile Williams and the Local are lined up out the door. Why? Take a look at the menu & bar prices while considering this is supposed to be a 'pub'. $9 a pint, $15 for a salad, $15 for plain nachos, and no steak-kidney or cottage/sheppards pie... More

I've never had a bad experience here. Great place to meet friends old and new. Food is exactly what you hope for from a pub atmosphere. Friendly staff and cozy atmosphere.

We stopped by this pub before the Foo Fighters concert. Got there around 5ish and figured we could order some food and a couple pints before the concert. I was surprised at how long the food took. We asked at around 6 about the status of our food as we were thinking of cancelling and just grabbing a hot dog... More

We ate here before the Foo Fighters concert. I had nachos and my wife had wings. The location is great for anyone going to the ex or the amphitheater. Unfortunately my wife's wings were not very good. Seemed freezer burnt. My nachos we okay but honestly just okay. The waitress was kinda grumpy and slow. The establishment is pretty cool... More

These guys are a great stop in Liberty Village. Good atmosphere, weekly specials, including Steamwhistle on tap (always a plus). Tried to fish and chips last time and it was great, coleslaw left a bit to be desired. My friend had the ribs and these were a bit spicey - which made them fantastic!

Thought we would try a new pub in liberty village. On first entering we were seated in a small dark corner and asked to move since it was not busy at the time. My wife and I ordered our food. My wife's food came first after 1/2 hour then mine. I ordered the roast beef and they brought me a... More

Went there to celebrate a special occasion for our family. We reserved, asking for a quiet table - well first off they put us right in the middle of the place - quite noisey so we asked to be moved and the waiter was quite nice and accommodated us. We ordered appetizers and drinks (the apps were not that good)... More

Neighborhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
