We went there on a weeknight, it was not busy. There was an Irish duo playing music. The service was very slow.

I've taken Clients to the Pub on quite a few times and we've always enjoyed our meals. Lots of choices, the price is very good and the service is excellent.

I chose this place as it was no more than an easy 5 minute walk from my hotel. Turned out to be a good choice. The food was tasty and arrived in a timely fashion. There were a number of locals eating at the bar which I usually find to be a good sign. The staff were quick to serve... More

Close to our hotel. Not sure how Irish it was, but good variety of beers on tap. Food was reasonably priced, hot and delivered in a timely manner. The Shepherd's Pie was really hot and tasty. The singer was maybe a bit loud for the size of room, but was talented and enjoyed listening to him.

This was near to where we were overnighting. Ample portions of the usual Irish fare. Very good value for money. And we had a pleasant Irish server.

I had a couple of beers and lunch here. The food, beer and service were very run of the mill but perfectly ok for an occasional visit. The pub lacks any Irish feel other than its name and the fact they serve Guiness. Music was a little to loud to chat easily.

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night, after landing in Toronto. We were the only people in there for the whole hour we spent in there. We both ordered dishes that included grilled chicken, the chicken was cold. Cooked but cold. I had a caesar salad with chicken, when it arrived cold I asked the server if the chicken... More

Keep in mind this is near the airport, however I travel a great deal and end up staying near airports for business for convenience. This is your typical Canadian pub fare. If I'm eating at these kind of restaurants and going for 'pub-grub' I'm wanting fresh veggies on my salads and a little more of a homemade feel to my... More
