We were a party of four and shared a large mixed meat platter. After trying the platter I felt there were too many flavours, textures and seasonings coming at me at one time. I would have been better just ordering chicken and dry ribs and...More

This smokehouse is a MUST try for Torontonians! The restaurant is really cool inside with some very comfortable high stools towards the front.

Got the platter. Best chicken wings I've ever had with the dry rub. Great atmosphere. Classy joint. Only tiny knock is too much food with the platter. Took about half home which isn't exactly a nightmare.
