“Felt like an everyday place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

A party of five on a Saturday night.
Foods ordered were: NY steak, sirloin, fish and chips, seafood pasta, and burger.
The NY steak with mashed potato and steamed vegetables was alright.
The sirloin with french fries was a bit overcooked.
Fish and chips was good value.
Seafood pasta was not too small in portion.
Mr. Perfect Burger with buffalo chips was good value.

Hostess was overworked but very nice service.

Overall, it is an average place with average pricing. Nothing extraordinary but not too bad either.

“A bit crappier than I expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

When you go to a touristy chain restaurant, you're not expecting to get your socks knocked off - but this place left me wanting to rename it "Mr. Green gee I wish I'd spent money some place else".

First off, lose the descriptor "fresh juice" on your margarita's - you're not fooling anyone with that dollar store mix. Second, the "BBQ" chicken wings would more aptly be described as "gooey chili powder paste" wings. The buffalo chips served with them were not bad but would have tasted better served warm.

Great service and a comfortable, secluded patio off the noisy downtown streets. All in all, not a bad place for a post work drink and snack - but next time I'd be a bit more strategic with my order.

“Combo lunch average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Maybe I made the wrong choice. My experience was to receive average quality food. Service very friendly and surroundings really pleasant but I do go to a restaurant to eat and would like to appreciate the food too.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Everytime I come to Toronto, I try and eat at Mr. Greenjeans. I enjoy their appetizer macaronie & cheese which can feed two people as a meal. The service is great and the staff are very friendly.

“Goodbye, Mr. Greenjeans”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

This place seems to get worse with each passing year. You’re paying for the location, and that’s about it. No one in our group was impressed with the meal.

Do not get the veggie burger. In the past it was good, now it tastes like wet cardboard. Even with the Entertainment Guide discount, this was not worth it.

The ‘Hostess’ spoke so quietly I thought I was at a funeral. Our server was awkward and did not seem to have any social skills.

And the dirty glasses and floating bits in our drinks was really off-putting.

The only reason we go is our little nephew insists on it. I’m afraid next year we’ll have to talk him into an alternative.
