My favorite two beers are Guinness and Carlsberg. For knowing nothing about Toronto and only choosing this pub due to reviews and proximity to our hotel I am so glad we did and definitely were not disappointed!!!!!! The only other thing I tried was the sliders which was delicious, tender and flavourful. Now it's time to enjoy the Irish live music. I came on a Saturday morning- it was pretty empty but it did start to fill up after 12pm. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Although it's quite expensive to have dinner here, the food is excellent, especially the lamb chops and the steak frites. I'm giving an optimistic 4-star, hoping my next return will be a more tasty experience.
The steak was cooked to our liking medium - rare with the mushrooms and onions and the bread was very fresh. I'm surprised I haven't rated it before, I've most assuredly been. Even though we were extremely satisfied with our meals we still had room to share the warm baked apple pie with 2 extra scoops of vanilla ice cream. For food I had the Irish sausage with veggies and gravy. My boyfriend and I both had the Manhattan clam chowder soup and it was amazing.
Was not impressed by the crab cakes. Drinks were average size and very tasty. I had the beet salad with added sirloin which was very tender and cooked perfectly and my boyfriend had the shepherds pie and he ate every last morsel. If you are looking for somewhere lively and entertaining with surprisingly good food then this is the right place! Really nice, not complied but nice simple cooking. We had the sausage and mash, curry chicken, bbq wrap and steak sandwich. In the heart of downtown Toronto for dinner after attending Toronto's Festival of Beer. Evening entertainment is always top notch and the live music on a Saturday night can't be beaten.
Get ready to lick your plate clean at Pj O'Brien in Toronto. The only down side was that the tables were squished close together and that evening there was both a live band and a speaker right next to our table. The beef and vegetables were moist and the mashed potatoes were great. If I had closed my eyes I could have imagined I were dining in a slightly more elegant restaurant. This pub has a distinct character and live music starts at 10:00 p. The atmosphere and the service will keep me coming back regularly.
I find the hours a bit weird so make sure you call ahead or check their website if you travel a long way to get here. Great beer and great food! For those of you who are interested please email your resumes and cvs to. For knowing nothing about Toronto and only choosing this pub due to reviews and proximity to our hotel I am so glad we did and definitely were not disappointed!!!!!! We were staying around the corner at hotel Victoria and wanted to find a cozy relaxing pub to get a nice snack after 9pm on a Monday. We're pleasant, place was clean and comfortable. This pub was recommended as having amazing food. Really enjoyed ourselves and the service is just top notch without any frills and thevserbers are super attentive.
Ask your server about our new local Toronto tall boy selection or sample a perfectly pulled pint of the black stuff! A width of 0 indicates the element is not visible. A must try and if we move here it would be my local spot. The Irish Bailey Coffee was alright. Applicants must have previous experience, smart serve certification and the ability to work as part of a team in a very fast paced environment. Anyway, it's just a classy pub full of very classy people. This is a rustic and traditional pub. Their menu is really extensive so I'm going to hope that there is better than I haven't tried.
We also god a steak sandwich with a side salad. The place was rammed to the gills when I came here for lunch with a friend on Tuesday. Hope to see you guys there! It gets super busy with the agtercwork folks but great lunch, after work or dinner spot. Batter was light and crispy, fish cook and moist, fries crispy and cold slaw was yummy. The bar upstairs is even cozier than the one on the main floor.
Musical diners frequently perform here, so patrons can enjoy live tunes with their food. I have to be honest, when I first walked in I was dubious but thank you to the person that suggested it. Authentic Irish Pub in the Heart of Our Great City!!! My friend ordered the veggie burger which she hated. Very little crab meat and mostly chick pea. Salad was nice greens mixed with vinegarette dressing.
They were right the food was delicious. By continuing, you consent to our cookies. All in all we ordered a variety of dishes and had mixed reviews. The dish was cooked perfectly. Don't fuss with street parking. I tried the Royale breakfast and finished it completely. The potatos were a bit more salty than my friends and I would've liked but still yummy.
When in Toronto we will definitely be back! The meal and service was great! And unlike the legions of cookie-cutter imitation Irish pubs, with token Irish beers, phony Irish names, and shamrocks galore, this is the real deal. Even though we were extremely satisfied with our meals we still had room to share the warm baked apple pie with 2 extra scoops of vanilla ice cream. Another friend had a shepherds pie and loved it. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. Despite this they still took the time to pour me a proper Guinness.
