We went here before the theater. 3 of the 4 dishes were okay at best. One was a disappointment. We went elsewhere for dessert. Would not go here for dinner. Perhaps more of a place to grab a beer only.

Excellent selection of beers on tap and bottled, great fries (duck fat adds a depth of flavour). One order can be split by 2 or more people as a snack. Hope to return soon.

Visited with friends on a Friday evening in November. The place was busy but service, from checking coats to getting served at the bar, was fast and friendly and, with respect to the beer, well informed. Really good atmosphere, everyone seemed to be having a...More

A strange place, oddly decorated. It has a large range of designed beers unfamiliar to our British palate. The chicken curry was lukewarm, and bulked out with potato. The chicken schnitzel was greasy and in a pile of leaves (the salad). Needless to say, this...More

This place gets busy so make sure you book if you want to eat here. We didn’t book but was seated in the bar area where we were able to order food. The bar waiter was happy to recommend a local craft beer to us....More

Great selection of beers, with good food. The duck fat fries, and pulled pork sandwich are really good. However, its always hard to find seats if you are spontaneously showing up on a Thursday evening. And God help you if you are there for lunch...More

Really nice restaurant and beer choices. The pizza was one of the best my life. Quick service and over 150 beers choices. I would go again!

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
