Six of us had dinner there recently and we all enjoyed our lobster dinners. Some of us had the actual lobster plate, others had the lobster rolls and someone else even tried the lobster poutine. Despite the restaurant being busy, the service was quick and...More

Came here for a pint with a buddy to watch an NHL play-off game. Decided on this place due to location and a desire to avoid massive chains. This is one of the older Oak locations, and it definitely looks it. That said, it is...More

From their first pub on Bank St., the Royal Oak has stayed the same: a small neighbourhood pub with friendly staff and a good selection of beer. Add nightly beer and food specials, and you have a pretty popular spot. Nice patio in the summer....More

We stumbled on this place and ended up spending a few hours. Good beer, really decent food and the staff were chatty and helpful (even if they couldn't understand Scottish accents...!!). I'd highly recommend this place if you are in the city.

WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. The food here is very average but Keg pricey...$16.99 for a hamburger and fries is ridiculous. Prepare to pay $20.00 for a pitcher of draft ... crazy. This is a chain so the prices are the same at all locations...go somewhere else.
