Why The North Coal? The concept was created by the feeling of being away from city life with family and friends. For us, that’s Northern Ontario, but as lucky as we are to experience that way of life, not everyone is. Our mission is to provide that feeling regardless of your surroundings.

Located in the heart of Downtown Burlington, The North Coal is the perfect place for Summer Drinks, Family Dinners or just a place to kick back with your friends after a long week!

    Ambiance is great, definetly fit the lumberjack vibe and was comfortable. The main meals did take a while to come out and one meal was mixed up and delayed. Food was tasty, but nothing you wouldn't get at an average restaurant.The service was ok, not great.

    Good ambience and general feel. Brisket sandwich was very good although the fries served with all three of our meals were cold. We waited a long time for our food even though there weren’t many people in the restaurant. My Brie sandwich was just ok. Overall the food was a disappointment especially for the price. The staff were friendly and attentive.

    Each time I have been there , I order something different and each time I can’t believe how tasty and delicious the meals are. Based on what I have experienced so far , I will say that you can’t go wrong on anything you order….

    I ordered a salad and added salmon to it. The piece of salmon was dry and cool to touch. I believe it had been cooked much earlier and they just tried to reheat it. We also ordered the sliders. Very strange that the top bun was warm and the bottoms were cold. Brussel sprouts were amazing. We waited an hour for our food.

    When I have to meet friends, I always choose this place. It's a cozy place and they never rush you. I have never been there during the evening, as my visits are usually mid day. Our server's name was Sarah [Sara?] and she was great.

    Had a great night out with the girls at The North Coal. The live music was amazing! There was a really cozy atmosphere. The bonfire margaritas were super yummy. The whipped ricotta with honey is a must try. Everyone enjoyed their mains and desserts, I had the brie melt and would order that again. Service was also great, friendly and timely. The one thing they need more of is wine glasses with stems. Highly recommend go for a dinner there.
