About
There is no "I" in our team!People are talking... from Durham’s best chicken wings (really, that’s what they say) to sandwiches that are big enough to share to pasta dishes like you have never tasted before and entrees that look like they belong downtown T.O. in a fancy schmancy restaurant.  Here at Bollocks we use only the best and freshest ingredients in our food.  We believe in our food. We love our food and we have fun with our food. We have the best around.. How can we possibly say that you ask? Well...  We have a very experienced kitchen staff with over 30 years culinary experience plus we have been awarded the Consumers Choice Award as the GTA East Best Pub by you, the consumer for multiple years in a row.   If you’re not in the mood to try our food we also have beer (lots of it) 20 beers on tap ranging from domestics, premiums, imports, crafts and wine (lots of it too)plus a bunch of other stuff.  We have daily specials...which means we got cheap stuff every day (in price only, not quality) we have the best serving staff and bartenders around. (we can say that cause we hired them). They always have a smile, are friendly, will go outta their way to make your visit a memorable one. (I really think it is because they like their job, not because of the tips). While here experience the most thrilling sports match-ups played out in supersize at Bollocks, where bigger the better is our mantra. Why? Because we’re derived from the dreams of sports fans like you who dared to want a more brilliant place to cheer for the good guys. Watch the most exciting moments of your game pulse through our 16-foot x 8-foot video wall, 33 SHD TV's in total. We broadcast every sport played on the field, court or ice and it’s a guarantee you won’t miss a minute of action. Come see for yourself...

Normaly the food is fantastic, especially their wings. I have not ordered alot from take out places during the pandemic but have from this establishment in Whitby 3 times. The 1st two times were great. Tonight- Thursday May 7th which happens to be my birthday, it was not good. We ordered through Skip the Dishes again, I had a chicken mushroom goat cheese sandwich... perfect. Unfortunately my bf ordered 2lbs of wings. They were so over cooked... it was ridiculous. We have the entire order still uneaten as it was so hard, the meat was dehydrated I thought he joined NASA and was taking it to space. He ordered 2lbs instead of 1lb so he could take the left overs to work. It was very upsetting as we were looking forward to a nice meal and he couldnt eat his. If we were sitting in the pub, we would send it back but its take out and stuck with food we aren't eating.

Not sure why we haven’t been here before it’s literally just up the road but made a special effort to try it out. I have seen many positive reviews and will add mine to it. Lunchtime on Friday, had a slight problem reading the menu because some of the items are on a black background and it was a particularly dull day outside, the lights could have been brighter BUT that having been said our meals were extremely tasty, seared tuna salad with edamame beans, orange slices, mango salsa and greens. Our other dish was moules (mussels) with frites in a Gorgonzola sauce. Both well presented. Their house red was excellent as was the dessert, four types of cake, we chose the carrot Carmel. I can imagine this place getting busy and loud for the younger crowd but lunchtime for us was great. Lots of TV’s with news and sports , variety of seating configurations, not sure that this would be suitable for younger children.

Wow, went in for a cold beer and a bite to eat, and came out with a new favourite rastaurant. The staff is friendly, and fantastic at what they do. The food is top notch, high quality, fresh ingredients and a huge selection of not only bar food but gastro fine dining!! Kudos to all the staff and the beautiful atmostpher.

We have been a frequent patron of the Bollocks in Whitby, but we experienced our last visit last Friday. I ordered the wings, medium/grilled. When delivered to the table, they were small, overcooked and dry. No amount of sauce could help. When I mentioned this to the server, I got "sorry about that". They offered to bring me more, but they never showed up at the table. Must say, they do have a good selection of beers on tap.

Have visited this establishment many times over the years. The last 3-4 times including just now. We have noticed the quality of food and portion size diminishing. Tonight I had the Hail Mary beef dip sandwich with poutine, when it arrived the cheese on it was partiality melted, the shaved beef was full of fat and gristle, the poutine was cold, none of the cheese was melted. My wife had a wrap that she said was good, her poutine was also cold. My Son had the chicken parm and had no complaints. Normally I would have said something to the server, however she didn’t return until it was time to pay the cheque. My wife and I agreed that tonight would be our last attempt at a restaurant we used to enjoy. We will not be returning. So sad.

I am not a fan of Slip the Dishes. As an abled bodied person, I am quite capable of picking up my own food, however this only works if the restuarant answers the phone. After several phone call attempts, getting only a message, I drove to the restuarant to order in person. I do have to point out that past dining and take out experiences at Bollock's have been satifisfactory, but I guess all good things come to an end. The stafff were courtious, and my order was taken quickly. For the type of food that we ordered, the wait was extremely longer than told. When I got the food home, the usually wonderful Turkey club looked nothing like turkey. It was like eating mystery meat on a board with a slab of cheese on it. The salad was good, but the fries only so-so. Over $35.00 with tip (20%) for a Turkey club with salad and a side of fries should be more palatable.

First time visit decided to stop in for lunch. The atmosphere was just what we were looking for! We were greeted and seated immediately. Wine and beer nicely chilled We ordered our meals. I had the Cajun chicken linguine and he had a burger and fries. I honestly can say I was very impressed with my meal and cannot say one thing to improve on it. Steaming hot, perfectly cooked pasta and chicken, ample portion and delicious. Good quality , fair prices We will be back

I order their $17 double burger. I love burgers. The meat I got was not a burger by any means. It was actually disgusting. Never mind that it was a frozen 4oz patty that was more saw dust than meat, it tastes like the cooked it in month old grease. The sweet potatoes fries they sold me for too much money were damp like an old basement and smelled the same. Just hideous all of it. I now feel sick and I am going to drink some milk to wash this disgusting grease cakes to my teeth. DONT ORDER THIS IS NOT REAL FOOD!

Enjoyed a nice lunch last week with my daughter and niece. One is vegan and the other is following keto. Both were able to choose something from the menu that they were happy with.

Bit noisey at times but that's because it's busy! A true sports bar with lots of screens. The food is very good and the service is as well.

We have been here many times, and never had a bad experience. Our lunch visit yesterday (Dec 29) was such a standout that I really want to say thank you. The service was great as always - friendly, professional and welcoming. We ordered food that we have all had often, and agreed it was the best we’ve had there. The balsamic veggie sandwich - which I always ask for without the portobello mushroom - came loaded this time with other delish, hot grilled veggies. My friend had the steak sandwich which was so good this time we barely got a word out of her once the food arrived..! Our husbands both had wings and said they were unusually good. So to whoever was manning the kitchen during lunch on Dec 29 - thanks a ton for a totally delicious Sunday pub meal to go with our football! Moving to Alberta in March and will really miss Bullocks. If you are looking for great pub food, and amazing fries, this is the place.

Had a great lunch here recently. Met up with a friend and the food here was great. This is a large pub and there is lots of seating, so even on a busy night the wait shouldn't be long. We had a super friendly server and she was prompt with our drinks and food. We had the bang bang shrimp tacos and the halibut tacos. We both really enjoyed our meals. We will definitely be back to tackle more of this menu.

We went here for dinner for the first time recently and loved it! We were seated quickly and our server was awesome. The restaurant itself was very clean and had a friendly vibe. The food was great too. We would definitely go back again.
