Good service. Good food and great beer. What more could you want And the prices are good too. We looked at a sushi place near by which was dirty so this place was welcome.

My husband and I had dinner here on a Wednesday night while we were visiting Toronto. I had Lamb Shanks with roasted vegetables. I have to say that those vegetables were the best. There was quite a variety and everything was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The lambs shanks were also good but after I tried the vegetables I almost didn't... More

Lots of variety on the menu to satisfy different tastes. We have had a few group meals there for birthdays, etc, and have always had an enjoyable experience. Food was good to great all the way around. Table of twenty plus diners and all were happy.

I had brunch on a weekend on the street terrasse (located on a quiet street), enjoying the sun. The food was to be enjoyed as well. Very tasty brunch items (I had a burrito) and enough food for the hungriest!.

Three of us had lunch on Pride Sunday. We knew that we would have a wait; we did not know that we would wait seventy five minutes for two salads and a fish and chips. The kitchen, bar and restaurant were clearly badly understaffed and completely overwhelmed. Our server was friendly and doing her best, but she could only do... More

This is a great place for a a drink or too and it has a fairly large patio. The inside restaurant also has lots of room. The service here was always a little on the slow side and most time we did have to flag our waiter/waitress down for refills. The food was okay, typical bar fare. Atmosphere is typical... More

Went in last week to have a couple of beers. The place wasn't busy and I could see bar staff but after waiting 10 minutes to be served, I left.

Good, friendly service. Menu is your typical pub selections. Good food but not outstanding. Good place to hang out with friends.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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 Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
