I have given Finbars in Portland Hills high ratings in the past for food quality, value and service. On this last occasion, we waited 20 minutes to be seated ..less than estimated.We ordered in about 20 minutes and then waited approximately an hour for the meal.. My favourite meal at Finbars is fish and chips but,on this occasion ,it disappointed with fries that were a soggy and barely warm.
Since this pub has earned top marks in the past, it is to be hoped that this Labour Day visit was an isolated problem of inadequate staffing in the kitchen.
At the same time,the practice of donating 15% of the tab on this date to the leukemia and lymphoma society is a fine example of giving back to the community and hopefully an inspiration to other pubs.

Hi Barrie, thank you for giving us the benefit of the doubt after an unexpected experience with us. We agree that your wait time is unacceptable and we are confidently working toward ensuring this does not become a chronic problem. We truly hope you'll give us another shot at the Beer Battered Fish & Chips.

Whenever we visit this place, an order of nachos is a must. Very tasty. Many delicious dinner options to choose from.

Finbar's is one of our favorite spots. We live very close by so we go there frequently. Food is excellent; décor is lovely, staff is helpful and friendly. It can get noisy at times with lots of people and loud music, but it's a very happy atmosphere. Also, an outside patio for those who enjoy the sunshine while eating.
