I've been to this pub 4x now all prior to concerts at the Molson Amphitheater, as it's close to the GO station @ Exhibition. Good atmosphere, servers have always been friendly and polite. Service speed & meal delivery varies but when slower it's obvious it's due to it being crowded. I must admit I do find their menu limited &... More

Good vibe and fairly good food. It does get busy though so make sure you arrive early! Music was a bit loud but no one else seemed to mind!!

I have been to the Brazen Head twice this summer, both before concerts at the Ampitheatre and enjoyed the drinks, service, food and atmosphere. Service was great, servers were very attentive and they got us in and out in great time. Highly recommended the pitchers of sangria (white and red) and the fish tacos! Will definitely return!

Stopped in here for a couple of drinks at around 4:30 pm on a Saturday before heading to an engagement party. We sat on the large outdoor patio which was busy with people eating before heading to the soccer game. The place inside was packed with people doing the same thing. The food looked amazing! The friendly server was working... More

On the patio on the 2nd floor - first the serve forgot one drink order and then we ordered nachos and never got them.... Server never noticed! But yes it was on the bill and the server had no idea! Better to skip the Brazen Head and go to the Foggy Dew! Much better service!!

We went for some drinks and food before going to BMO stadium and I was pleasantly surprised. There are several patios to enjoy the day on and we enjoyed all types of different drinks and food; all of which were fantastic. The $5 burger and fries special was amazing! I had the fried chicken sandwich with salad as well as... More

Wow! (In a bad way) an Irish pub with NO bangers and mash?!? FAKE Irish pub. This was just a bad place. It has a nice but loud atmosphere and friendly staff but this menu needs a serious overhaul.

The BH has changed the food & beverage menu again and sadly there is little to differentiate this place as an 'Irish Pub'. It has the atmosphere of a sports bar / eatery which I could deal with for the last couple years (my local watering hole) as they had a 1/2 price wing special on Monday nights and served... More

I absolutely love the style and atmosphere of this pub. It could be a four and perhaps a five for a rating but it needs more, much more, consistent service. This was my second visit and both times the service was average at best. Not unfriendly or rude but slow and very inattentive. The village has a small number of... More

Neighborhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
