Stopped in today with Derweg (Jonas). The place was mostly empty, largely spacious with odd clashing decor. Squared bar is right in the center. Got a pint of the Black Oak Ten Bitter Years which was awesome. Server was very friendly and attentative. The food Jonas ordered was very plentiful for what you pay and tasty. Great selection of stuff, but I can see the place getting super busy and less pleasant than it was today. Definitely has a hardcore bar feel to it, but my experience today was very good and I would easily go again.

Visited on a growingly busy Friday evening in April, it has a dark dance hall feel with a generally loud din above some background music. Cheap drinks are a plus and quite the bottle selection is noted in a big menu, but the first five we tried to order were out of stock. Service is pretty slow and forgetful and one-task minded. Have tried the wings here: tasty if a little cold by the time they came out. As one lady told me in the washroom, "Itís a little dungeon!"

We visited here again later in the year with a group of eight for birthday drinks. The service was quicker but ruder: she gave us a hard time for not giving a bigger tip when it turns out she was ignoring the $10 in change we had collected.

What a strange place. They have an extensive multinational beer list but are out of almost all of them. The prices are really good, which is probably why itís popular, but most folks are drinking Bud Light. Price is the only reason to drink here but you get what you pay for...

This place blows. It has no idea what it wants to be, as evidence by the myriad of clashing decor and a laughably absurd menu ranging from coq au vin to deep fried pub grub. More than half of the beers we ordered werenít available. Some bitch shift manager tried to kick us out of our seats for someone else. Prices are very good, but the Rhino is a gong show in pretty much every respect. No way in hell Iím going back to this shithole.

A nice and large round bar. Bottles from what you missed at the LCBO in other parts of the province, basically. Away to the west of downtown.

Very Queen Street West feel, all sorts of different people. Been there a few times now and service has been inconsistent between excellent and indifferent. Blown away by such selection in Parkdale westend, almost brought a tear to my eyes. And at reasonable prices, only 2 times retail, as opposed to the 3 times downtown. Unfortunately, many not available. The food was great too!!! The biggest downside, do something about the menís washroom, wow did it stink of urine, is that where the Rhino goes. Not sure where to deduct the points off for that so will take it from Ambiance. Drive by it everyday on the way home and never realized how good it was. ill be having dinner there many times in the future to avoid rush hour traffic home.

very nice selection of bottled brew and enough on tap. a large bar with patio, the service is good enough and overall is nice place to have a drink.

Huge area inside with the bar in the middle. Good selection of microís on tap and in the bottle (Ontario bottle prices insanely cheap). Cask ale available as well. Not great service, serviceable food. Has its charm, but maybe a local could give a better review - my visits there have been only ok.
