I've been coming here for more than 40 years and am impressed with the renovations and the new menu. The salmon with penne was delicious as was the beef barley soup.

Disappointed to say the least. Been living in the North York area for most of my life and came to this restaurant many times in the 90's and 2000's but havn't been in awhile. Went there just after New Years 2017 and just like ole' times, there was the huge menu (wide selection of food as always) but if you're... More

We ate here twice on our family visit, portions were good and even satisfied my teenage son. The choice was varied and the prices were very reasonable for both the quantity and the quality of the food. The 32oz milkshake was a huge hit, though we classified it as dessert, teenage boy heaven! We had a mix of dietary requirements... More

It is seldom that all of us are in the same city or country, however all of us consider Toronto our home. This was our 2nd family reunion brunch. I highly recommend it. Service was excellent and the food was good to very good. I tasted my sister's meal of steak & eggs and found ita little chewy, however I... More

My husband and I went to the original Pickle Barrel restaurant on Leslie Street for lunch yesterday. The food was horrible. We had such fond memories of this restaurant from many years ago and were so looking forward to it....but what a HUGE disappointment. The meatloaf was the worst mess! Looked like it had been reheated on the grill and... More

I have been to the Pickle Barrel many times and have never been disappointed. They have lots to choose on their menu so even the most picky eater can find something. They have a great breakfast special . I love their salads and pasta dishes.

The food (breakfast) was mediocre and the service was appalling. It took 10 minutes to get a waiter to come and ask if we wanted drinks. It took another 10 mins to take our order. The coffee was so weak it was undrinkable. Food arrived after about 20 mins, toast was cold. Asked for hot toast - it came 15... More

We went a couple of nights ago (me, my wife, and 3 kids) to have a mid-week dinner. We were seated very quickly (there was no wait) and our waiter came by very soon to take our drink orders and then our food. The food was slow to arrive - in spite of the restaurant being empty - and when... More

This isn't a review of the restaurant but rather one of the servers, an elderly Chinese gentleman named Derek. We always make sure we're seated in his section because he's friendly, funny and very efficient. Regulars will know him because he's been there for years and is the only thing the place has going for it. Otherwise, it's okay food,... More
