4 Beers, 1 Burger, 1 Calves Liver with a side of Mashed were ordered. This came to nearly $100.00 with tip. Service was fine, food was fine, but seriously the above for nearly $100.00? No thanks.

We love the outdoor back patio in the summer. It is a little oasis from the bustle and noise on the Danforth. Great selection of Ontario wines by the glass. The food was good as usual. Friendly service.

They are trying to be fine dining when they are nothing more than a pub. My first and likely last visit to this "joint". When you walk in, it looks like a regular old pub. Prices are sky high with service, presentation and food being...More
