If you are looking for a family friendly restaurant with good food and prices, look no further than McSorley's on Bayview.it is a sports restaurant with television screens placed strategically for maximum viewing g of sports while you eat. Free popcorn for all. Casual, relaxed atmosphere.

they are free and you can deposit the shells on the floor. Hamburger was a generous size with a good helping of fries.

I went in for a quick bite and was pleasantly surprised at the great service! I ordered the soup and sandwich of the day and it was really good! The bartender Patty was well versed in the menu offerings and had my order to my seat in 5 mins! I will definitely be back!

We love coming to McSorley's for a family weekend brunch, a weekday lunch, or the occasional dinner. Nice patio for warm weather or tables facing open window. Great ribs, wings, sandwiches, eggs benedict.

Located along an upscale shopping strip in the Toronto neighborhood of Leaside, McSorley's became known around North America as a quirky, enjoyable dive bar that offered friendly irreverence along with outstanding chili, peanut shells on the floor, and a truly unique variation on the ubiquitous chicken wing. The place changed ownership a few months back. In place of the interesting... More

It's the neighbourhood pub! Great hosts, always fun and family friendly. The food is freshly prepared and tasty - great wings and pizza. Lots of selection on the menu and always a special of the day. This place has always done well since it opened over twenty years ago and you can't do better than that! Highly recommended for a... More

Went for a late lunch with extended family. There were 7 of us in total (3 adults, 4 kids). The place wasn't exactly the cleanest, but it's kind of a run-down pub so I guess that's not a surprise. I had the meatloaf, solely based on the "rated top 3 by Toronto Life" in the description. It was bad (in... More

Looking to eat a late dinner, we ended up at McSorley's after trying a couple of other places and being told the kitchen had closed. It's a friendly and somewhat scruffy kind of place, dominated by TV sets carrying various sports events. We both had steak, which was average to good. More imaginative seasoning would have helped. The fries and... More

Staying in East York

Neighborhood Profile
East York
East York includes a portion of old, industrial Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere. The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York allure. The other draw is for foodies: lovers of Bangladeshi fare will find authentic restaurants and markets in the area, with raw spices and desserts. East York also represents a lot of Toronto's Serbian food culture, and recently, has had an outcropping of solid microbrewery stops. For families, the science center is a favored weekend stop.
