In its backyard, under the leaves of three century-old willows, Allen’s offers a daily barbeque menu cooked over Canadian hardwood charcoal. This Irish saloon on the Danforth cooks up some of Toronto’s best patio grub for the masses that frequent Allen’s. Upscale favourites like steak or lobster hit the grill Tuesdays through Saturdays. Hoist a lager while you feast on the barbequed treats.<br/><br/>A...

Extensive Beer Menu: I was quite impressed by the vaste selection of premium and imported beers that Allen's had on tap as well as in bottles. Great for trying something new and different. They also make a pretty damm good ceasar...with just the right amount of spicy vodka goodness! I had the pork loin chops and it was decent, but not exceptional. My friends had the burgers, which are quite pricey too, but looked, smelt and apparently tasted amazing. Next time I would try one of these instead of the other overpriced dinner options.

Allen's sports a great bar that offers more than 150 beer selections and 278 single malts. Guinness is the drink of choice on Tuesday and Saturday nights, when folks reel and jig to the Celtic entertainment.

This neighbourhood joint has been a long running staple in the east end community for over 20 years. Stacks of older professionals and friends can choose from an impressive list of over 100 different lagers. Extensive list runs to VQA tested wines (apparently, that means the wine is good) and a rare selection of whiskey. Upscale pub menu is a force to be reckoned with. Prides itself on being an...

This time-honored pub, burger joint, and casual dining room takes its name and inspiration from the institution in New York City. Take note of the excellent beef, lamb, and pork -- the heart of any great burger -- which is sourced from local farms and then butchered and ground on-site. Pastas, salads, and mains are all consistently good. Brunch, especially when the lovely patio is open, is a...

Information from the business

Allen's stands as owner John Maxwell's loving tribute to the Irish-American saloons of his native New York. Extensive use of wood, a tin ceiling, oak-plank floor, and warm dark colours give Allen's, the glow of comfortable tradition.
