Was in the area and wanted to take my kids somewhere for fun food. I hadn’t had pub wings in years so thought this place might hit the spot. The servers were friendly and the food was really good. My daughter (24) and I had...wings and my son (13) had a burger and a Caesar salad. The food was served quickly, was hot and was really good. It was a sports bar with giant tv’s everywhere and there was a stage for a live band as well; a place I’d like to return to, without the kids ….More

The food was great but VERY spicy. If you like spice then this is the place for you. I got the Cesar salad wrap. It was very good but had a lot of spice. Also I got the hot honey sauce and there was NO...honey in the sauce. We got takeout since we bought food during COVID. The fries were very good and crispy though.More

Drums N Flats has really good entertainment, we have seen a bunch of bands at this venue and all have been great. The food is delicious for bar food and the service is friendly. Very good sport for a fun night out.

We like to go out for dinner and watch sports, specifically the Leafs and the Raptors, Drums N Flats has so many TVs that it doesn't matter where you sit, you can see the game. Wings are the best around, my fav is Angry Mexican...but we get it finished in medium because the hot is really hot. Service is friendly and the restaurant is comfortable.More

If you like a relaxed and casual environment, to watch sports and/or listen to live music, this is the place. The club has a great layout for watching live sporting events, as well as seeing live music. They have a great lineup of quality bands...performing on a regular basis. The cover charge is very competitive and the staff are really friendlyMore

I love the wings at DNF, this place lets you order all drums or all flats, I always go drums, double dipped hot. Try them out, big and juicy, always fresh, fries are good as well and they also have really good nachos. Good place...for families, my kids always ask to go here, staff are friendly and nice to the kids.More

These wings are the best, the double dipped Honey Boo Boo are like crack, I can't get enough of these beauties. Been to both locations and wings are the same, total dope. Ribs are very good too, one of my team had the ribs and...was going off about how good there were. They also have veggie option for wings with cauliflower in a breading with any of the wing sauces, good idea for my veggie friends. Check this place out, you will thank me, yoMore

I travel a lot for work and end up in different cities alone, mostly in the North East, this usually ends up with me sitting at a local bar/pub by myself. You can tell a lot about an establishment from how the staff treat someone...who walks in alone, this place was one of the friendliest bars that I have visited, it has a very "American" feel to it, before you go all Trump, MAGA crazy, the difference between American bars and Canadian bars or at least Toronto bars is how quickly you can become part of a conversation with total strangers. I have always found Toronto pubs to be a little too quiet for my liking with little banter among patrons at the bar, Drums & Flats was not at all reserved, it is welcoming and I had a great time. Bartenders immediately were engaging and most importantly, paying attention, they were quick to pour a second drink and offered up suggestions on what to order, always nice to get the inside scoop on the food, event though this establishment is a wing joint, the suggestion was to try the ribs and they were excellent, pleasantly surprised by the quality and portion size, very tasty. Many TVs to watch sports with 3 different options behind the bar, hometown sports crowd, again, more of an American feel. I look forward to returning to see one of the many advertised bands, was told by many patrons that the live music is very good.More

A great casual local spot to visit if you want to watch sports, and listen to some great music. The wings were tasty and fresh. Love all the flavor options. My fave was the Double Dipped Chipotle Thunderstruck. All wings come with celery and carrots...and their special inhouse dipping sauce. The fries were not greasy and cooked to perfection. Recommend ordering some gravy do dip. Beer was cold and fresh! Staff were friendly and attentive. Will be back again with friends for wings and beers.More

We nachos as a starter they were ok - although they were loaded it was also served kind of cold. Wings were also just ok - I’ve definitely had better and for the price I expected better. On the plus side the service was very...good and we had multiple screens to watch the Leaf game. I’d consider going back but would not get the wings.More

We enjoyed ourselves and the band was super. Food wasn't bad but not spectacular. Service was great and staff was super friendly. They didn't have our reservation right and were quite chaotic around tables for people that night. Way too busy to handle all the...people. The venue became really really hot throughout the night and not enough AC pumping out because there were a lot of people and they had the front door and garage type door open. I had a great time and would definitely go back though. It is a very happening place.More
