Lively slightly bohemian hangout with friendly competent attentive staff and some good barbeque. place gets busy early and the kids are a feature until about eight. Noisy but fun as long as it is not a serious evening - this joint makes for a good reasonably priced night out.

I have been here (dined in) now 3-4 times (plus, Ive had UBER Eats deliver to me too - the restaurant doesn't offer delivery, but UBER eats does so had them deliver to me twice as well) You just cannot fault the food. Its truly my all time favourite "smoke" house in the whole of Toronto. I'm not going to... More

We reserved a table for 5 for brunch. The breakfast meals were very good for those who ordered breakfast. Those that ordered the lunch meals were left disappointed. The beef brisket came out tough and definitely cooked the day before. The biggest surprise was that they didn't have any ribs probably a good thing because based on the brisket they... More

Boxing Day while everyone was out running around grabbing this and that trying to save a buck . We decided to go out for dinner. We always wanted to try the Barque Smokehouse but every time we tried to go, we were always told it be a couple of hours until a seat could be had. We couldn't even get... More

This is one of the best BBQ places I have ever been to. When you are seated, there is popcorn already on the table nicely spiced. The BBQ is so good, chicken was so juicy and the beef brisket amazing. We got brussel sprouts and mac and cheese as sides. Great place to go, recommended highly!

Went here with my wife and we had their bbq ribs and pulled pork, also their sampler, with poutine. We waited quite some time, when the food arrived it was overcooked, dried out and over seasoned (this was the ribs). The poutine was nothing great, was searching for the curds, and the pulled pork was ok. We finished off our... More

The restaurant in itself is great. The tables are spaced nicely and you do not have to shout at each other to have a conversation. Our server was excellent. The three of us shared the BBQ platter and it was delicious. The ribs are a treat, the chicken was a joy and the brisket a dream. Barque is there when... More

This place is the real deal. I visit every time I am in Toronto. The food is consistently stellar. My colleague and I had the smokers choice. All of the food is delicious. The chicken wings were truly outstanding. The only thing I did not like was the loaded french fries. I mean, it's good, but too much given the... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
