My fiancee is originally from Toronto and, when younger, used to frequent Crocodile Rock with her friends; I decided to surprise her with a return visit for her birthday on February 17th. Everything was fantastic for our birthday party group of 10!
First, their website was super informative with lots of options and, while we did not go for it, the inclusion of birthday packages was a welcome sight.
Reserving was great; I left a message and the manager pleasantly called me back; most bars don't let you reserve tables without paying a premium, but Crocodile Rock had no problem doing so. In fact, when we arrived, they had put up balloons (without me even asking) and sectioned off an area right next to the dance floor for us.
The location is easy to find, quite spacious, well-lit, clean and nicely appointed. The staff was all wonderfully pleasant and helpful. It felt much like a Bar & Grill with a Dance Floor than a club by *any* means. The music was constant, of a wide variety and very danceable.
The service was excellent. Katelin, our server, tended to our needs all night long, and not once gave off any vibe of disinterest when I (the Designated Driver) repeatedly ordered water throughout the night. She made sure everyone's drinks were full, and that the birthday girl was well-taken care of.
Another nice touch: Their Sunday "Long Weekend" event (they're normally not open Sundays, but because of Family Day on Monday, they were open this particular Sunday), a large number of drinks were only $4 until 11pm. And even after 11, the price only goes up marginally.
We had an absolute blast and would definitely go back in the future!
