Dinner served daily from 6pm -late
Weekend Brunch served from 10am - 3pm
I really appreciated some of the authentic details of the food, straight down to the Tabasco sauce and the Paprika in a salt shaker. It reminded me of the food I grew up with and the atmosphere balanced between being dark and nostalgic, and well deliberated.
Went with friends for brunch. Everyone was super impressed with our brunch orders. We had The Parkdale Easy,Veal Schnitzel and the McSchnitty-all were excellent!
Amazing ambience.Great service.Really good live music.
Will be back
Amazing atmosphere! Our waitress had some amazing suggestions! We will defiantly be back 😊
Kevin is the best, he’s the nicest server. He has okay taste in music.
We had a delicious brunch here, but they ran out of the dish I actually went there for. The food we had was great and the servers were attentive and friendly. The Saturday live music was a surprise and at first I was afraid our kids would hate it, but it turned out to be great.
fabulous and varied food choices. although our server did not seem happy with us when we did not order alcohol, the service was still good and friendly. the cost of one piece of cheese with no accompaniments was a little disappointing. the beet toast was a great idea, but the diced beets kept falling off the bread. the french toast was the best i've ever had.
Great food and service- our server helped us navigate portions and selection that was very helpful.
My family and I went there to celebrate my wife's Bday after spending the day in the neighborhood. We didn't know the restaurant ahead of time and were not familiar with the area, so we took a chance on Tennessee based on the reviews and website photos. We were thrilled with the entire experience. Great feel, food and very lively. The staff was terrific and very friendly.
Went there will 3 others on a Saturday, 6pm for drinks and dinner. Cool casual vibe. Friendly staff. Found the music a bit loud for dinner but they kindly turned it down a notch. Really interesting menu with lots of variety. I’d call it ‘funky eastern European’. Very conducive to sharing. Great selection of craft beers too. Our waiter was very helpful in helping us order a variety of shareable items.
Certainly worth a visit. We enjoyed it!
Excellent Polish/European food. Do yourself a favour and order the Salmon/caviar as an appetizer. I will definitely return here and with a city as full as Toronto with great food the ultimate compliment is to come back and spend more money at a place you like. I usually shy away from "hot new restaurant" lists but this is one of the rare occasions where the food lived up to the hype.
We used to love this place but today was incredibly disappointing. It took 1.5 hours to finally eat. We sat down at 1:00pm and didn’t get fed till 2:30pm. The server was ambivalent and really didn’t care that we had 3 kids at our table.
Next time why not offer some pretzels or anything to say the least. We literally ran across the street and bought food to tide us over.
And we weren’t comp’d on any of our tab.
You know you are busy on the weekends and need to plan appropriately.
Because guess what if you take care of the kids the parents tend to spend a lot more money on drinks. Instead we were too busy trying to keep them occupied
It’s a cool divey kind of vibe with good service. The food is Eastern European so it’s pretty heavy. Not great for vegans or vegetarians
Not a restaurant for food enjoyment. Food mediocre. The veal schnitzel was overcooked. Our server kindly replaced the first schnitzel which was stiff and difficult to cut. The second was at least warmer but not much better. We must comment that our server was very pleasant, explained the menu, she was patient and immediately replaced the schnitzel with no argument. We are sorry we did not get her name to give her a shout out. In sharp contrast was the first server who seated us and he must have been full of self importance as he haughtily answered initial menu questions - his body language saying I am in a rush don't bother me but watching the restaurant flow there was no need to rush.
The place should warn you in advance that on Sunday aft they have inescapable LIVE MUSIC. the music was OK, but there was no escaping it. the place is too small for that. I would have cancelled had I known. Who needs live music on a Sunday aft?
Great variety and original recipe. Friendly staff. Tasty and plenty
Very attentive and wonderful service.
Great place to order and share your food. There is also a good variety of craft beers on tap.
Food was sub par, huge egg shell in my eggs tenny. But environment was great! Lol
Waitress hostess sat us at-the worst table in the restaurant as we were only 2 people, even though the restaurant we not busy..,when we asked to move tables she was very sarcastic with us.,, the meal was great, service ended up being good but, it started rocky, also, we made reservations but they still tried to seat us in the worst table....
Went for brunch. very standard. loved their perogies but not the smell of the pub.
As always, the staff at Tennessee did everything they could to look after our party. The server was lovely and exactly, perfectly attentive, and the host made sure my partner had a special dessert to celebrate his birthday. This is now our family's go-to for all special occasions.
Great food and special atmosphere. The schnitzel and spaetzel &cheese were totally delicious. One of the best stuffed cabbage rolls ever.
Best pretzels in Toronto
I’m obsessed with this joint. Delicious food, amazing service and great ambiance.
Delicious brunch. Sweet back patio. Great service and you don’t have to wait forever
To sum it up, an interesting venue with excellent food, a very good selection of Beers, Wine and and Spirits - Eastern European hard to find eau de vie - partnered with friendly, excellent and knowledgeable service! With respect to decor - an interesting combo of an old style and basic pub with bare tables but linen serviettes and decent cutlery. There's a small outdoor space at the back as well and on certain days they do have musical events. Check first if you just want a quiet dinner - they're very accommodating and helpful.
Good local tavern for locals only. Excellent food and very nice staff. Too dark to read the menu, too loud for staff to hear you when you place your order. Some beers on the menu are not available, some rakia is overpriced. Overall 3+
Great place. Very welcoming. Really enjoyed to whole experience. Will be back!
Great selection of beers. If you want to try European type meals, come here, the food is awesome. Service was very attentive. We didn’t realize they have a band come in and play on Saturday, so that was a real treat to sit back and listen.
GVG does it again. Everything we ordered was perfectly executed. The Tennessee platter was the star (a must order for groups). Service was beyond good - friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Will be going back.
Had a great time celebrating Father’s Day at Tennessee Tavern. Food was great, atmosphere was fun, solid craft beer list and a bit of sass.
Definitely would go back. Terrific variety of choices and great quality.
Only complain was our waitress was slow and didn’t hustle at all. Made me think she was used to working at a slower pace outside of North America. With two young kids there for brunch, we expected a bit of an understanding that kids’ patience for long waits between courses or as we leave are limited. The rest of the wait staff were solid in support including the manager.
All in all, a unique and enjoyable experience.
I’ve been here several times, delicious unpretentious good food. Live entertainment. Child friendly brunch. Check it out!
Very dive bar inside, love the decor. We sat on the patio which has larger tables for groups and nice tables for two people. Excellent service, the server made great recommendations and was really knowledgeable. The food was really great. Highly recommend with friends or a date - good prices too.
The server was really nice and made good suggestions!
Loved the back patio
Food was excellent! Service was top notch. Will definitely be going back to this place again!
Tennessee Tavern continues to deliver month after month. The staff are engaged, lack pretention and work hard to introduce everyone to the menu and help guide newcomers through all of the options. The consistency of the operation and the ever pleasing duck fat blinis and caviar bring me back even though the trek is now from lake Simcoe and not just a few city blocks. Grant continues to hit home runs.
The pogo is life changing and I cannot wait to go back and eat it again. The meal was abundant in food, and vibrant in taste. Everyone who served us was lovely. The only meh was an expensive teeny tiny cocktail. Beer would have been a better choice with this meal.
Great little spot that has a honky tonk brunch with live music starting at 11am, Just in time for a brunch cocktail!
Casual vibe. Kid friendly.
The Tennessee has a Simple and delicious brunch menu that brings your Polish Faves to Breakfast.
Great authentic offering with a twist. Will definitely return! Cocktails were off the chain!
The hostess at the door wasn't friendly but our waiter was great and walked us through the menu. Environment is fun and food is great.
