We recently went to Boxcar Social for an engagement party.

The service was fast and friendly. The hors d'oeuvres that were served were very tasty. For the beer connoisseur they have an impressive 20+ craft beers on tap.

We had an enjoyable night out celebrating a friend's engagement!

Had lunch here before taking a cruise of the harbourfront. Funky bar, picnic table décor and nice views of the water. Table service was friendly and good, great selection of beers and the food was very good.

Had a nice breakfast with Boxcar's breakfast sandwich and a latte. It's all great and there is quite a view.

I ordered a glass of wine and the grain salad which was supposed to have 2 large pieces of tofu. After I finished the grains I saw another group with the same salad and realized that mine looked nothing like theirs.....it was missing all of the tofu. The server admitted to making a mistake and gave me the "friends and family" discount of $1.80 ha, ha, ha. This is totally unacceptable! It surely is no way to treat your family and no way to make friends. The people that run this place need to realize how to treat customers (especially locals that can make or break a business here). Bad business people.

great location at York Quay. Patio overlooks Lake Ontario. Inside industrial vibe.

Good coffee and tea selections. As well as normal bar selections.

Watch the timing of your visit. Kitchen closes in afternoon. Bar snacks from 4:30-6. Then kitchen opens again.

Had the cheese board, great for sharing.

A bit on higher end price side but friendly staff, good location make up for it.

free wifi.
