The food here is consistently good. They have recently added cocktails to their drink menu (previously was just wine and beer and shots). Recently discovered that they have a great happy hour special of half-price appetizers on Wednesdays - which makes it a perfect place...More

The food is decent, the service usually prompt and friendly. The best thing though is the great value: you can get a burger and a beer for very cheap if there is a game on with a Toronto team playing.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of

jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
