My friends and I enjoyed a nice bike ride around the Toronto island and ended up having late lunch at the Toronto Island BBQ restaurant. The service was very friendly and the food came quick! The view was amazing and the fish tacos we shared...as well as the angus burger I had tasted awesome! Will definitely be coming back!More

A wonderful atmosphere of the Lake Ontario waves and beautiful Toronto skyline in the distance make this spot a can't miss on your summer list! The Food was fantastic our fish tacos, fries, and wings were all served super quick and tasted phenomenal. (the chipotle...mayo on the tacos is to die for!) We stuck mostly to beer however the cocktails we did try, were great and well priced. (a special thanks to the bartender for his recommendations) The staff were so friendly, and the manager Grainnne was happy to help with anything we needed! All in all great experience will be returning here as much as possible this summer!More

I came here on Canada day with my family and loved my visit. The restaurant is located right off the dock when you get off the centre island ferry. The menu has a good mix of food and had some great vegan options for my...husband who had the vegan sausage tacos and loved them. The bar offers a wide selection of beers and spirits and a couple of cocktails which I enjoyed in the evening. The staff where quick and efficient while being friendly and chatty. The view in the evening blew me away and was a good opportunity to get some family pictures with the cities skyline in the background. I can't wait to visit again before the kids go back to school.More

Visited Toronto Island Bbq & Beer a few days ago. The view of the city from the patio is absolutely gorgeous. We enjoyed some cold beers and tasty appetizers. The jerk chicken wings are fabulous and the staff is lovely. We will return!

went for lunch with my family and it was amazing. staff is so friendly and very helpful. food was excellent, especially the fish tacos and the island wings. nice options on the menu. lovely umbrellas on the patio so, nicely shaded. Some spots sunny if...you want a nice tan ;) exquisite views of toronto from everywhere on the patio!! the signature beer is Ferry-boat blonde lager and it was delicious. paired very nicely with my food. my dad had the Lighthouse IPA and he loved it. for dessert I recommend the peach + pecan bread pudding was phenomenal! the pride flags were a nice touch!! will definitely be back very soon!More

Here with my girlfriend and got an idea this location is off the lake and with a view of the Airport, CN Tower and the Skyline of downtown Toronro. I think the next time I bring her here will be to ask her to marry...me.More
