We've been to the Black Dog a number of times as it's close to home. Their food is much better than typical pub food. I've enjoyed their specials and their menu. Great place to go with friends!

The black dog has a great beer list and good food! The atmosphere is busy, lively and loud. Great for catching up with friends, perhaps not do suited for families! Friday and Saturday you would be advised to reserve!

Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a
district heavily influenced by immigration. With a
number of low-rent shopping and dining options making
it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one
of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise
green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for
bargains and discounts. It also draws in
photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous
