I went there a few times during summer and food and service have always been great. Deluxe grill cheese is my favorite but everything is excellent. Pleasant staff.

I visited this pub with friends for Sunday brunch. The food tasted nicely. We were a big group so some orders took longer and even one order was mixed but waitresses took great care of all our group, and apologized for their mistake. Nice environment and clean washrooms.

Was going several times a week, before I moved out of town. As a former long time resident of BWV I can say that this is probably the best pub in the area. Decent food and my favorite draft (Mill St). Excellent brunch on weekends. Those bizarre reviews below are nothing like close to the truth. That's the internet I... More

Since I live nearby, I would go in frequently from now on. Good beer, and outstanding pub food (the chimichanga and the spinach and crab dip nachos were absurdly delicious). There are also some open mic and trivia nights. Sadly, some of the waiters are not very attentive (I asked one of them for a glass of water 3 times... More

Thanks for the kind review. Yes we had some problems with staff but we are working to improve things. Unfortunately we had four longtime employees quit at roughly the same time. (Late summer) One went to Ottawa, to be with his partner. One went up north to live with her elderly mother. One went back to school and couldn't work... More

Been at this pub a couple of times. I would not recommend it. The so called owner there is drunk most of the times, always being rude to customers, and complaining that he deserves at least 30% tip for his disgusting service and hospitality, Unless the management changes the food and the environment is not good nor friendly. You can... More

Hmmm. As an owner who never serves and drinks lightly and occasionally, I must assume you mixed us up with someone else. More

I've been coming to MacKenzie's since 2011 and always enjoy Thd food. This visit my son had the penny with Alfredo sauce and meatballs and I had the MacKenzie's salad with chicken. We ate every bite but we're too full for dessert. Next time we're trying the banana fritters!

A great local pub in High Park. The staff is very friendly and the food is always consistent and good quality and value. A good selection of beers and a small but nice patio and located directly across from High Park

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
