Steak & Kidney Pie, Bangers & Mash, what could be better? I have had these dishes elsewhere in Toronto, paid more and gotten less. The kitchen in this restaurant consistently puts out better quality at lower prices. This is a waterside patio in downtown Toronto...More

When the weather permits, we enjoy eating on the patio overlooking Keating Channel (sounds better than the Don River). Extensive menu and selection of beers. Entertainment is normal and well done. We eat here about five times during the summer when we aren't on vacation....More

Went for lunch this past Saturday, at the husbands suggestion. He eats here regularly with his buddies so I was a bit leery as his standards are sub-par at best. I was very surprised! NOTE: I did not go into the pub, but sat outside...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
