We love coming to McSorley's for a family weekend brunch, a weekday lunch, or the occasional dinner. Nice patio for warm weather or tables facing open window. Great ribs, wings, sandwiches, eggs benedict.

Located along an upscale shopping strip in the Toronto neighborhood of Leaside, McSorley's became known around North America as a quirky, enjoyable dive bar that offered friendly irreverence along with outstanding chili, peanut shells on the floor, and a truly unique variation on the ubiquitous chicken wing. The place changed ownership a few months back. In place of the interesting... More

It's the neighbourhood pub! Great hosts, always fun and family friendly. The food is freshly prepared and tasty - great wings and pizza. Lots of selection on the menu and always a special of the day. This place has always done well since it opened over twenty years ago and you can't do better than that! Highly recommended for a... More

Went for a late lunch with extended family. There were 7 of us in total (3 adults, 4 kids). The place wasn't exactly the cleanest, but it's kind of a run-down pub so I guess that's not a surprise. I had the meatloaf, solely based on the "rated top 3 by Toronto Life" in the description. It was bad (in... More

Looking to eat a late dinner, we ended up at McSorley's after trying a couple of other places and being told the kitchen had closed. It's a friendly and somewhat scruffy kind of place, dominated by TV sets carrying various sports events. We both had steak, which was average to good. More imaginative seasoning would have helped. The fries and... More

We go to McSorley's all the time. It feels like a roadhouse that welcomes locals, single people and families: all are welcome. the have great Beer on tap and a surprisingly great selection of white wine. My daughter just learned how to play the pinball machine tucked at the back (KISS no less) yesterday. The food is all really good... More

Nice atmosphere and our meal (turkey, stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and steamed veges) was very good and the desserts were good too! Nice place to hang out and watch football! Note - we were visiting from Ohio.

Great vibe for watching sports and having a beer with friends. Much better than average pub food. Great service. Large screen tv and lots of beer options.

This is a very relaxed fun environment in which we enjoyed a tasty lunch today. Traditional pub style food - steak sandwich and quesadillas. The service is informal and prompt. A great place to bring the kids. Both a local and a good place just to stop in. Well done.

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
The North End is a nucleus of specialty food restaurants and shops, especially around its Mount Pleasant Village area. Frequented by antiquers for its numerous collectable shops, furniture spots, and oddity stores, the North End is a maverick of the quaint and quality. Vintage toy stores, accessory shops, and cinemas welcome perusers to step back in time, while the wide pedestrian squares and the large medical and business community inject it with a dose of modernity. With numerous cafes and Toronto's greatest number of independent booksellers, it isn't uncommon to see folks in this area at their leisure, reading outdoors and in eateries, and taking life a bit more slowly – even if it's only during their lunch break.
