Nice neighbourhood pub

The Portly Piper is located in the back corner of a strip mall in suburban Ajax. Don't let that fool you, it is a great place to eat and drink. My favourite are the chicken wings and the jumbalaya.

We went with 16 7-year old kids and families on a Friday night. It was packed as you'd expect on a Friday night in June. But we got great food and cold drinks all in time to get back for our night game. Great food, amazing friendly service and cold beer! You should go! They worked the miracle for us... More

We visited at lunch time on a Saturday. The place was packed. We seated ourselves as the sign said. We waited some time before a waitress came to take our drink orders and give us menus. We read the specials on the way in and the waitress did not mention them when she took our orders. We ordered 2 for... More

Add Mill St organic beer with the wings and it will call you back week after week. Yum yum... It takes some time but the wait is worth it.

Portly is known for being a great place to eat have a few drinks. Great for couples or large groups. Waitress are great and service is usually quick. Be prepared to wait for a table on the busier nights/times

The place was full of men!! Incredibly noisy, but we were seated in a back room area, somewhat quieter. Food was great, two for one appetizers that night, so bonus for the cost. Service was good, not rushed at all, so lots of time to chat.

Typical bar food as it's a pub style place which is close to my work. Service is ok but when you only have limited time to order and eat, it's probably not the right place to go. Food is pub food for example Fish and chips and burgers and sandwiches. Decent but not cheap.

Have been here 5 or 6 times and was always good the last two times wings were burnt and crunchy and the veggies looked like they had Bern out for awhile. Going to give them one more try

Wing night at the Portly is on Monday and Tuesday nights. They have the best wings - they are a good size, meaty and a variety of sauces. My husband's favourite is "Hot Grilled" and I usually just order Hot, with a beer on tap.
