Really enjoy going any keg across Canada. I do notice the prices quickly creeping up. Used to go more often when they had nachos for my kids. They obviously need to make more money off each customer these days. They’ve even eliminated the chicken strips....More

The Esplanade takes the Keg experience up a notch. Exceptionally attentive and friendly waitstaff make the experience that much better. Keg has done a great job with the layout in terms of lighting and acoustics, that you feel you are in a much smaller, modest...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
