“Always Leave Happy!!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Have to say, always thought this place was just a giant beer keg! But to my surprise, the food is absolutely fantastic!! The "grilled calamari" is dressed with a salad and veggie collection, that had me going nuts. They have a platter for 2 or 4 which has a variety of smoked and cured meats (often wild game) along with different types of cheeses and tasty samplings. too much to cover.....so I highly recommend it! Even the chicken wings (which I rarely order in bars) are so good, you have to eat them. Beer, whiskey, and wine selections are very extensive!!! Generally very busy for a small place, as it is clearly "No Secret" with the locals of Bloor Street!!! good for small groups, or just the 2 of you.

“Best cheeseburger I have ever had in my life...”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Had the most fantastic cheeseburger at this restaurant. They have fantastic beers as well. It is in a cute little city that is away from the busy downtown Toronto scene. Great service and atmosphere. It's a must!!

“Try the cask! - best craft beer selection Toronto”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

A friend of mine told me about this place, and that I had to try a beer on cask. Let me tell you... Soooo fresh and good! These guys know what they are doing when it comes to beer :)

The food is good, but go for the beer, grab a sampler or two. Amazing atmosphere, great night out with friends :)

“Cask beers, samplers, good food”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Love this place, amazing selection of craft beers, hand pumped cask ales, and good food...

Every time we go they have new beers on tap, love the cask selection. If you are interested in good beer and food look no further :)

“Great selection of craft beer”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Had a casual business lunch here midweek in February.
Great and unusual selection of draught craft beers, offered by an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly bar-person.
The food was very tasty although several of the menu items were not available.
The interior is compact but nicely finished.
Prices were within the normal range for good, freshly made (but not exceptional) bar food.

All in all, a good bet if you like unusual beers and good bar food.
