Allen's is reminiscent of a New York City saloon from ages past. The tin ceiling, the wood floors and the cozy old bar make it an experience in itself. Yet Allen's also has a fabulous menu that is sure to inspire and delight.

With more than 300 kinds of whisky, more than 100 wines and over 140 beers, it will satisfy your need for liquid refreshment. The food is pub fare improved thanks to the reliance on organic and locally raised meats and careful preparation. Burgers, salads, soups and so much more await those who pay a visit to Allen's.

    We ate at Allen’s based on a neighbour’s recommendation. The service was prompt. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was friendly and energetic. Would definitely encourage people to give this place a try!

    We ordered the barbecue specials; blackened salmon and grilled vegetables with goat cheese. Both were delicious. Our server was great!

    Allen’s is simply the best. A longtime friend (45+ yrs) and I have lunch at Allen’s every three months (we schedule the next lunch before we leave) and it (Allen’s) is always the perfect venue. My friend - a native Long Island / New Yorker of very Irish descent - always has the Lamb Shank and it’s always awesome. He just devours it. I always have the “Basic” Burger…which is anything but basic…because unlike many / most restaurants, they’ll happily cook and serve it medium rare. Always perfectly done. Always delicious. With or without matchstick fries and always with a side of mushrooms and paired with a Kilkenny … the perfect guy lunch. Forever fan.

    Best hamburger in Toronto. No competition. Outside patio is a great place to hang out in the summer. Service is always good. If you are a beer drinker, you’ll find something here for you.

    Love this place, great service and ambience. We Chose to stay inside for the air conditioning, but lots of people on the backyard patio. I had crabcakes and blacken potatoes salad. The crabcakes were a bit stodgy and didn’t seem to have much crab. Potatoes salad was delicious and a huge portion, So took most home. My husband had the lamb shank,Which was plentiful and delicious. We will certainly go again.

    Allen’s had been a mainstay for us for years when we lived in Riverdale. It was our “go to” spot. Now that we live in Victoria BC, we make sure we hit Allen’s for the “best burger in town” (the only place you can order your burger medium rare BTW) every time we visit Toronto. After 10 years, they still remember my name - now that says something. Best burger in TO, best whiskey bar, best backyard patio, and an absolutely fantastic staff with great service - thanks to everyone at Allen’s for all the great dining experiences over the years!
