Restaurant was clean and service was quick and food was pretty good. Was a perfect spot to stop to get off a busy 401 for a bit.

I've been to other locations but the food and drinks at this one don't seem to keep up with the taste of other locations. I'm happy to have them close by but it's not as good as the downtown locations I used to frequent.

Dropped in for a late lunch one afternoon. Ordered a chicken club as I know they are usually filling regardless of where I've eaten them. It wasn't the usual triple decker club sandwich I'm used to and it was on fancier than toast bread. Nonetheless, it tasted pretty good. Fries were just OK and they could've dropped a few more...

Nothing special but nothing wrong either. Good food, decent price, usually good service. I would recommend staying away from places like this during Leafs and Jays games as they can get busy and loud.

We went there with family and friends . I looked at the menu and thought wow these prices are high for just pub food .iT seems most of the franchised pubs prices have sky rocketed . These are prices for fancy dinners not pub food

Finally, corporate has really looked at their menu. I was pleasantly surprised with better food and better portions. Not fabulous but leaps and bounds better than the past. I had fish tacos - fresh (yes I realize the fish was frozen), tasty, maybe need a bit more seasoning, but quite enjoyable. My partner had wings - large, meaty, but a... More

Stopped in for supper on our way to the airport, just wanted a quick meal ....however it took the waitress ten minutes to arrive with a menu. My wife had the burger, it was okay at best and I had the fajitas which again, okay but the portion size was quite small. It's an okay place but probably not for... More

Went here with my friends, it is a chain so you can only expect average food any service. I wouldn't say there is anything WOW about this place. Food wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing. The restaurant does send out coupons in the mail from time to time which is nice.

My husband and I had never been to a Shoeless Joes before and we were quite impressed with the food. The menu is quite large, thus making it a bit hard to choose, but we found the food to be seasoned perfect. My husband had a stir fry and I had wings and a salad, and let me say we... More
