“Thank goodness for this Pub in this area.”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

I wish I can say this was a local one and only pub. But I heard it is part of a chain of a few in Toronto. Nevertheless, it's good to have this pub in this area of downtown core on Yonge street where it's full of chain restaurants. Have dined in this pub a few times. It feels like a local hidden pub once inside. Dark and comfortable with good bacground music. The service was good. Staff are pleasant. The food was good as well. It can be busy. Be prepared to wait for a table. Will return in the future.

“Best place to see the game!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Stopped in early Sunday morning to watch the gold medal olympic game.

The place was packed but it was still easy to see the game as they have a giant screen plus many flat screens throughout.

The staff were hopping but still courteous and easy to talk to.

Everyone was in great spirits.

They also have a big fireplace so I am definitely coming back on a cold winters day.
