My husband has the same thing almost every time - the steak sandwich, and I like to try me items. This restaurant has great variety on their menu and even brews their own beer! I also really like their desserts!

it was loud and not very well lit for daytime, even after the lunch rush that it was very difficult to hear each other. Our waitress was not very attentive forgetting simple things like water. The food was average, i might give it another chance at some point down the road

Whether with a few friends or a large group, OJ's is a good place to. It's got great selections of food and drinks specials, and it also has TVs so you can watch the sports games. When I went with a group of 20 the service was great and they accommodated our group quite well. Though not the classiest of... More

We stopped in for late night snacks and dessert after a concert. We were not disappointed. We had poutine and calamari followed by mud pie. All was tasty and well prepared even at the late hour.

Our burgers were so juicy and delicious . We both had The Kono burger with a slice of pineapple. The fries were so yummy and freshly cut, perfectly cooked. We had nice cold beers to wash that all down as we watched the Blue Jays win.

Went for late lunch and was in time for brunch specials. Husbands poutine came with no cheese or gravy (otherwise called potatoes) so they had to go back. Really weren't that tasty once they came back. I had a BLT on toasted bread with cheese and it was quite good. So I would say it's hit or miss depending on... More

They have a very good and large menu. The food was very good. I had an excellent tostado chicken salad. The atmosphere is quite vibrant but a it loud. There are lots of TVs with sports on.

A place for food and drinks. Better than your average bar but not a fancy eating establishment. Friendly staff noisy for quiet conversations. Good food, and service.

Service was prompt and attentive. Food (burgers) were generous and tasty. Beer (Stella) was cold and enjoyable. I would go back to this bar again.
