Food is great at the The Blackhorn. I had not been there for a few years, but decided to celebrate there last Friday. The Greek cuisine is delicious with generous servings. I had beef stroganoff 'simply delicious ', I could not eat it all; my buddy had prime rib to die for; dill pickles and garlic bread all around. The... More

Wholesome well cooked food. Staff very attentive. Decor is old-fashioned and dark but clean. Good food at a very reasonable price.

The decor is frozen in time, several decades ago and the service was verging on surly. However, we enjoyed the food here and would return for the quality and value. A word of warning; the servings are large. We had an order of garlic bread and bruschetta, shared one appetizer and had two mains. It was more food than we... More

Our first time back in many years. Like many of these types for places in Scarborough, it is very dated. I had the Steak Special. Did not know it was covered in gravy. I am funny about that. I want to see my steak and always assume the gravy is hiding something. Hubby liked everything but then he usually does.... More

My wife and I went to the Blackhorn for lunch, a first time. She had steak that was tasty and perfectly cooked, and I had the schnitzel, again perfectly cooked, and correct schnitzel size. The service was very good.

I can remember eating ribs here as a child with my parents and my sister in the early 70's. Fast forward 45 years, I was back for a rack of ribs to see if my memory still held true after all those years. I have such fond memories of this place as a child. Every time the Blackhorn was mentioned... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
