About a year ago, I had a bad experience here and wrote an honest, yet unattractive review of Working Dog Saloon. Some of my friends told me that the 'problem' (horrible waitress with an attitude) was long gone, so I decided to give this place another try. What a pleasant surprise! We were a group of 7 with a reservation... More

Went on a sat night around 10:30 and there were about 5 people in the place. Wanted to food and drinks and the kitchen was already closed by then so we had a drink and went to the next place. The drinks were on the higher side for a place like this. There was a dj playing music which was... More

Amazing restaurant, I LOVED THE WINGS, also the sweet potato fries were to die for. The patio was nice and large and had a large lcd tv. The service was nice and the owner was very pleasant to me, and I would totally recommend it with friends or family!

I just came back from a dinner at The Working Dog Saloon. I have been here many times in the past. After it changed ownership, there was a noticeable positive difference - both in the food quality / quantity, and also with the service. We met the owner several times on previous visits as he made his way around the... More

Went to the Working Dog Saloon recently and was disappointed with the food. They used to have distinctive food and now is plain old bar food. The food isn't horrible but not nearly as good as it used to be. The server confirmed that they have new owners and obviously there was a change in direction in the food. The... More

I've had wings all over TO and working dog has top 3 wings in the city. Someone recommended the place and they were correct.

Fresher food, not cooked in ancient deep fat. Excellent savoury curry, souvlaki and non-limp fries. This went from being a last-resort option to a place I am glad to go to!

We have been frequenting the Working Dog on and off for a few years now with pleasant service and good food. To our surprise, it has changed ownership. Our visit last week was a total disaster. It took numerous attempts to get the waiter's attention after arrival (15+ minutes). After a long wait, we finally got our order long after... More

This place is on the expensive side but the food is original and they have some great beers. Nice place to hang out and meet people.

Went here and service was slow and waitress couldn't get our simple order straight. Wanted a pop, 1 beer and 1 water and she brought a pitcher of beer. Then we ordered wings and this was messed up as I ordered honey garlic and was brought hot wings. Hopefully this waitress is no longer there! While we were having our... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
