Dropped by with a friend, fantastic service with equally fantastic food. Not your average frozen then deep fried food. Everything was fresh and you could certainly taste the difference. Friendly staff, nice looking patio (was raining the day we went). Certainly now a favourite spot, especially to bring friends and family. Great atmosphere for business as well.

We booked the rental space in the lower level of the Blake House for my annual Family Reunion on August 11, 2012. Jimmy, one of the owners, worked wih us to come up with a menu and it certainly did not disappoint. We have everything from sliders to vegetarian pasta; the chicken breasts were some of the moistest chicken I have ever had. The staff were amazing and so accomodating. The food was spectacular and the space was perfect. We ran a family video on the 3 TV screens in the main space as we kept all of the kids occupied with a TV in a lounge area. It was probably one of our best reunions ever - thats to a wonderful night at the Blake House. Keep up the great work !

It was super busy when we stopped in for a bite to eat, but we were not disappointed. I had the Mac-n-cheese, which was great, and, despite the slow service, we were given a complimentary pitcher of beer to compensate. They really care about customer service.

My husband and I have been a fan of The Blake House since it opened its doors on Jarvis Street. It is in an excellent location; the service is friendly and efficient; and the management is always present with a warm greeting and a smile.

The menu at The Blake House is well thought out, offering an array of favourite pub-grub goodies with a 'creative twist'. Dishes are carefully prepared and the portions are generous. I highly recommend the caesar salad, the fish and chips, and the calamari! Local breweries dominate the draft selection, and Niagara wines are the top choices on the wine list.

The ambiance is casual, and the decor is modern yet respectful of the heritage building it is housed in.

I truly love going to The Blake House for all of these reasons mentioned … it remains my favourite local "hang out" for gatherings with friends and family.
