Twenty-five to forty years ago, 'The Steak Pit' was a great steak restaurant. However, I was very disapppointed when I returned after being away many years, to see that the restaurant is now somewhat rundown, the food average at best, and the service sloppy. Give...More

Excellent service and food. Still provide dill pickles, olives, celery and radishes; along with garlic bread on the house. Food is delicious and well-prepared.

Haven't been to Steak Pit in years and was excited to go back. Walked in and nothing had changed (decor) in many many years, which in some ways was comforting. The food on the other hand had changed ALOT. Other than the relish tray and...More

Read the reviews and wanted to give this place a try. Expensive for what you get. The ribs were dry, tough and tasteless. We ordered the ribs plain with the sauce on the side. Sauce tasted like tomato puree from a can. Don't waste your...More

The steak pit is a must-visit! It doesn't pretend to be something its not, and makes no apologies for what it is...a timeless restaurant serving up a decent steak dinner, complete with a deliciously old-fashioned pickle tray starter and traditional garlic bread! I recommend skipping...More

We recently visited the Steak Pit on Avenue Road. A small family owned business which has changed very little since opening in 1966. The background music consisted of R&B songs from the 50s and 60s. We drank Woodbridge Winery Sauvignon Blanc 2014 by Robert Mondavi....More

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
