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

This bar has nice old-fashioned look and nice patio. The place is huge inside enough to give some privacy away from the other tables, if needed. The restaurant is always busy and rocks with music. Very clean professional staff for the customers. Delicious food, good drinks, quick service and great sightseeing are key point for this place. Nice bar to... More

Stopped in for drinks and dinner. Reasonably priced. Excellent service. My sandwich wasn't made the way I'd like it and they remade it for me. Patio experience did not feel like you were downtown. I would definitely dine here again.

This place is great in everything except for service. It is a pretty big venue, they have 2 very nice patios, one on the main level and second on a balcony. The food is delicious! Probably the best nachos in town - just a perfect balance of all of the toppings! Pulled pork is just YUM!!! The selection on tap... More

Dropped by early morning to watch a Euro soccer match but they weren't open till 1/2 time ... but then again neither was much else in Liberty Village at that time. Servers graciously pointed me to a few nearby coffee outlets in the meantime. When I returned my food order was taken but seemed to be forgotten ... then again... More

Planned to eat here prior to Mumford and Sons concert, a Monday night. Now I have been here a few times before TFC games. Once it took an hour to get food. Another time not bad. Atmosphere is good so worth trying again. Get to the door they claim it is a 40 min wait for food. Now there are... More

Popped in for lunch, seated immediately, our waiter, Mike, was attentive and super friendly. My husband had a full meal from the menu and, according to him, the best pint of Guinness he's had in a long time. Our waiter Mike didn't flinch when I just asked for a glass of milk so I could have my slim fast shake(on... More

So we read reviews and figured a good choice but .... food was okay - over priced but thats Toronto. Our waitress was good but had too many tables and thus the service was not good. We sat on the nice patio but when i went to the washroom there was 2 waitresses standing around folding napkins. I think managment... 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.
