I have head from EVERYONE that their nacho's are the best, unfortch they are made with fried pita chips, instead of corn chips, and i am allergic to wheat! Hope one day they will make a corn chip variety too, since nachos are my favorite food group :P
But be warned they are a huge portion, my BF got them for his main dinner, but could only even eat half of them, they are best for sharing.

I'm not sure what the fuss is about. It's a nice place with good atmosphere and decent (though very expensive) drinks and wines by the glass. But I've been five or six times because that's where friends often go, and the the food is expensive and mediocre, at best.

I count this restaurant among my favourites, and coincidentally, was just there last week.

Apps range between $5 and $12 I think, while sandwiches are between $10 and $14. The sandwiches are all accompanied by fries or salad (excellent). I think their 'meal salads' are all around $10. Serving sizes are generous without being ridiculous.

Mains run the gamut from $10 to $20+. Most are around $15 I think.

The 'made in-house' veggie burger is exceptional there. I've had a seared tuna steak there (it's a special) a couple of times, and I really like their preparation. I haven't been with anyone who didn't enjoy their meal there. Though, I once had the caprese salad and was satisfied, but not blown away.

They have a variety of pub-style dishes, and many more upscale entrées. I wouldn't call it british style pub food, but rather eclectic Toronto-style pub food. Examples include curries, pastas, fish, etc. There are numerous vegetarian options, and a great selection of draft beer and bottled wine.

As for the space itself, there is a huge patio, that will probably shut down soon. I don't think they have heaters out there. The main floor is a few steps below street level and has a bar as well as a number of tables. The upstairs has a few large booths and more tables. I think the washrooms are upstairs too.

it does an interesting take on nachos. Instead of chips, they fry flour tortilla wedges until crisp, and load on the toppings. kind of like the shell you often get taco salads in, deep fried and flour based, but bloody amazing. Highly highly reccomend them. They're quite good and the small size is enough for a meal for one.

If you go to Hair of the Dog - order a casear. Its like a Bloody Mary but made with Clamato juice instead of tomato juice. It is so good there - they add horseradish to it.

located near Church & Carlton.They serve a variety of 'pub-inspired' dishes. Many are good, and most are great. Prices range from $10-20 for an entrée. Their homemade vegetarian burger is fantastic, as is their seared tuna (it's a special).

Best brunch value in the city. Superb atmosphere at any time of the year. Genuinely friendly and unpretentious staff. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to enjoy good food in a warm, relaxed environment. A++
