Like a classic work of Victorian literature, a trip to the pub often begins with an introduction to colourful characters and ends with the revelation that everyone in the room is related to each other.

In an upbeat environment featuring live music, karaoke, and other toe-tapping entertainment, diners dive teeth first into a menu of burgers, seafood, pasta, pizza, and pub fare. After playing a game of darts or duck-duck-velociraptor, patrons can peruse a list of more than 10 sandwiches and sink incisors into a philly cheese steak or a 10-ounce double pub burger enhanced by bacon, cheese, and a Kaiser bun. Fans of fish out of water can get their fill with a seafood sampler boasting half orders of clams and scallops and a fillet of battered haddock, and steak lovers carve up a 10-ounce charbroiled strip loin, and pasta patriots salute a plate of spicy sausage penne. To complement the savoury fare, guests hydrate throats with a bottle of pop or a domestic beer such as Keith's or Oland before attempting to translate the entirety of Ben-Hur into whistles.
After getting their fill, patrons can jitterbug and turn working hands into jazz hands with Joe Murphy & Friends each Thursday evening as the band belts out blues, Cajun, rock, and country tunes. Every Friday, pub-goers flex golden pipes as DJ Krazee Kraig spins tunes for the whole restaurant to sing along to.
Porters Lake Pub & Grill
Since the 1960s, Porters Lake Pub & Grill has been serving up staggering portions of merriment in the form of live music, Halloween costume contests, and arm-wrestling tournaments. Today, the pub unfurls a lengthy menu that teems with seafood dishes, juicy burgers, and a surf 'n' turf entree that facilitates a garlic-sauce-infused rendezvous between a 6-ounce new york steak and sautéed black tiger shrimp. Some nights, the pub hosts live music, and on weekends, it cooks up brunch until 2 p.m.—late enough to recharge after morning tasks such as raking the leaves, but early enough to spend a productive afternoon decorating the neighbour’s yard with your leaves.
