Classic sports bar

great sports bar in Parry Sound, lots of screens, beer on tap, off track betting going on, Bobby Orr hockey stuff on the walls. Dated decor but still going strong. Busy for middle of winter

The food here is your standard pub fare, unfortunately they rarely get it right. Something usually has to get sent back at a table of four or more and the decor is ridiculous even for a sports bar. I don't need to see a life size Don Cherry giving me a thumbs up as I'm paying for the sub par... More

I have never been to such a horrible place in my life. I got terrible service from the waiters and cold food from the kitchen. I went there and spent HALF A HOUR trying to get a waiter to assist me. I even waved to one to get her to help me and she ran off in the kitchen. When... More

The food was good, but the interior was in serious need of upgrade. This is a real 'man's bar'. We enjoyed our food, played some pool and in general had a good experience. Parking in the winter was a bit of a challenge as there is no dedicated lot and only street parking

I ordered a poutine. The easiest meal ever. Received it cold. My server was wearing pajama bottoms. Seriously? Thank goodness our server left our table & we got a new server. She was pleasant. My cousin got a wrap and her lettuce was close to rotting...

Don Cherry's has new owners as of about a month ago. The food is much better and I understand some much needed upgrades are coming soon to the property.

We were in Parry Sound, my motel was few minutes walking from Don Cherry, we decide to have dinner there, seeing Don Cherry and Bobby Orr are a household name, It was a Saturday nite, surprised it was not extremely busy, there were few tables to choose. Décor, like many is rustic had all the famous hockey memorabilia. Lots of... More

Traveling, went with my female friend on a Saturday night. Atmosphere: dank, fetid and menacing. No music but a scratchy, crappy, ABBA tape played like a whisper and a lone, broken, blood-spattered, pool table which constitutes the only entertainment other than 10 violent men, regulars,lined up at the bar SCREAMING repugnant assessments of the female anatomy; vicious, homophobic slurs and...

Ok food, typical prices. Service was great! Seems to be the latest open pub in Parry Sound, so not much to compare to. Full kitchen menu available until 11pm, appetizers until 1am. Could use a makeover inside, but after driving for six hours, the warm food was welcome!
