  • Scruffy's Irish Pub
    Though the name evokes images of a dingy basement dive, Scruffy’s is actually quite a lovely pub. The two-floor gem was converted from an 1850s house built by a War of 1812 veteran, and has been restored to almost gleaming condition. The front of the building resembles an atrium, with sunlight pouring through a glass wall that stretches all the way up to the vaulted ceiling. The bar is framed in dark wood inlaid with painted designs, a deep hue that’s carried throughout the space on tabletops and chair backs. Tufted red booths run along a few of the walls, and bright white posts prop up the railings that edge the upstairs balcony. Like the surrounds, the menu is casually elegant. There are a handful of pub-style dishes, of course, such as Irish lamb stew and shepherd’s pie, as well as more diverse plates of chicken carbonara and Indian-style vindaloo curry. Most nights, there’s some form of event to entertain people as they eat, whether it’s karaoke, live music, or the strangely two-dimensional athletes on the flat-screen TVs.

  • Naughty Nadz Bar & Restaurant
    Naughty Nadz Bar & Restaurant fuels late-night festivities with a menu of eclectically inspired pub cuisine. Besides familiar staples—including fish 'n' chips and gravy-smothered poutine—cooks serve up a selection of Mexican- and Mediterranean-influenced dishes. Housemade guacamole and salsa accompany the jalapeno-laden nachos, and hummus lines flour tortillas alongside refreshing cucumbers, baby spinach, and feta cheese. Flat-screen televisions, foosball, and a pool table help keep visitors occupied while they enjoy their meal or their drink. The pub hosts open-mic nights twice a month as well as karaoke every Sunday, encouraging guests to croon their favorite song or the most musical passages of their television's instruction manual.

  • Ellen's Bar & Grill
    Ellen's Bar & Grill has all the makings of a classic sports bar. Sporting events flash on the big, flat-screen TVs, and servers sling frothy pints of beer across a sleek, wood-finished bar. But it's easy to see personal touches that set the restaurant apart. To be sure, the menu serves up the traditional pub fare you'd expect, from jumbo hot wings to burgers so big they're billed as "two-hand burgers" and were once sold by Napoleon to the United States. Many of the salad dressings and sauces are even made in-house. Diners can also nosh on a shareable plate of nachos or coconut shrimp, savor a spinach-stuffed ravioli, or dig into poutine piled high with caramelized onions, steak, blue cheese, and gravy.

  • Casey's Grill Bar
    Before the notion of upscale pub fare existed in Sudbury, Ontario, Casey's restaurant was busy inventing it. Since firing up its first kitchen in 1980, Casey's has grown to include more than 160 restaurants that operate under five brand names, including as Casey's Grill Bar. Inside its welcoming walls, culinary craftspeople put an upscale twist on traditional pub dishes from burgers to sirloin steaks. They crown their fresh half-pound ground beef burgers with sautéed mushrooms, Alexis de Portneuf brie cheese, and arugula before tucking them into an Ace Bakery bun. In addition to their poutine with Quebec cheese curds and gravy, the chefs also toss heart healthy salads and pan sear mahi mahi accented with sweet hints of mango salsa.

  • Brassie Pub
    With its wood-panelled walls, dartboards, and impressive collection of draft beers (not included in this Groupon), The Brassie Pub brings all of the pocket-watch and penny-farthing panache of a British public house to Toronto. The alehouse menu serves up North American favourites alongside traditional English pub eats.

  • Augustas Winking Judge
    The Augusta House plies patrons with fine dining and down-to-earth drinks in a cozy, inviting atmosphere. For sophisticated palates, the extensive menu features meaty morsels such as the New Zealand half-rack of lamb drizzled with red wine demi-glace ($24), as well as a savoury selection of tapas, salads, and gold-rimmed monocles. Otherwise, lighter eaters can pair a crisp white from the wine list with a haute cuisine update of traditional beer-battered fish and chips ($11–$17). Live blues and Motown DJ sets on Saturday and Sunday get toes tapping and cochleae salivating in the gracious ochre dining room, while a regular trivia night with discounted import beers can tickle brains as well as bellies.
