PUB STYLE RESTAURANT

The food is good and plentiful at this restaurant. Sometime they have entertainment. Since it is kind of a sports bar, there is a lot of televisions. Sometimes they have coupons for 2 for 1 meals. The only thing I can say bad about this place is that it is very noisy. They have a patio.

Stopped here for lunch yesterday... Busy and noisy, but welcoming. We came at about 12.30 and were quickly seated. No problems. There is a huge selection of beers on tap and a good wine list as well. A huge menu and lots of different things to choose from. Daily specials are great value! We were impressed with generous portions and... More

We decided to check this restaurant out based on the good reviews it gets here. My lunch was OK, my husbands was quite good. The service was pretty slow but we weren't in a rush. My major complaint is with the kids menu. Like most places, a drink is included with the meal. I ordered an apple juice for my... More

We were with a small group of people who ordered a wide variety of delicious food items. ALL were great and we remarked that we would make a point of visiting this terrific restaurant whenever we were in the area. The service was a bit slow, and the restaurant was noisy but the food was delectable!

My friend and I went here for an early lunch before our pedicures. We arrived in the early afternoon so that we could avoid the lunch crowd. We were seated in a booth and football highlights were on the telly. My friend had the curry wrap with onion rings, I had the Greek omelette with toast and homefries. I could've... More

We've come here a few times, as it's the only pub that everyone in our group knows where it is. As the title says, the food is pretty good (not spectacular), but it can take quite a long time for your server to take your order or bring your meal. I would have ordered the Triple-decker turkey club sandwich, but... More

On a recent visit to Ajax, we encountered a wonderful place to eat! The Portly Piper was a fabulous spot. The food was outstanding! The portion size was extremely generous and the price was very reasonable. We had excellent service and only had to wait 5 minutes or so for a table (the place was packed!). The beer was cold,...
