“Good food, just a little pricey”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

The Black Dog has good food in a nice, relaxed atmosphere. We stick to lunch as dinners can get very busy here. The food is good but a little pricey for what it is.

“Good But not our Style”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is a very busy friendly restaurant/pub in eastern Scarborough. Very popular as the parking lot is almost always full and cars are parked on the street. It has a very neighbourhood feel and it appears that there are many many regulars. Food is good although a little pricy and the menu is well thought out. We've been there a few times but stick to going for lunch as it can get crowded and noisy at dinner time. If you are looking for a place to socialize and have a few drinks or dinner, this is the place. If you want a quiet dinner, maybe think about somewhere else.

“A Real Pub”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We lived close by for many years and went frequently to the Black Dog Pub. The food is good, the variety in the menu is great - more than you see in most pucs, but all traditional pub foods. Entertainment is good and the service is great. It is close to the highway as well so if you are travelling and looking for a good place to stop for dinner that's a little different you won't lose any travel time.

“Nice place”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I've been to this restaurant 4 or 5 times over the years and really enjoy it. Staff is very friendly without being overbearing or fake, the food is really good and the decor is nice. I've been for brunch and dinner, with 1 person and with 6 people and every visit has been nice.
