The staff were polite and checked on us frequently. The upstairs patio was lovely and had a great atmosphere. We also enjoyed the food and drinks and did not have to wait long for food service. Overall, it was a great experience!

Everything was good..the space is quite large on the top deck and was comfortable. the server was lovely. I ordered a hamburger which was good but it was served on a small plate with no pickles or fries or side salad. a bit dissapointing.

The selection of beers is great, wine selection rather limited, excellent range of food items, food reasonably priced, well prepared and quite delicious. The noise level was totally over the top, and very unpleasant. Heavy metal from the 70s and 80s just blasting out of speakers situated all over the place. I live very close by, and was hoping this might be my new neighbourhood hang out. It is unfortunate but I won’t go back unless changes are made regarding the music noise level. Due to the noise level, I cannot recommend the place.

Good service, big beer selection, nice patio. I had the fish taco bowl, which had only a few small pieces of fish - would have been nice if it had 1 full fillet, as well as more sauce (there was hardly any).

The food wasn’t good. Burger was same as what I can get at McDonalds. The drinks and ambience. Good for drinks, not the food.

We were pleasantly surprised with the delicious and high quality “pub food” and especially with pleasant rooftop dining area. We felt like we were on vacation. The quality and presentation of our salads, fish and chips, chicken fingers was way above our expectations. We will happily come back!

Spacious patio! I ordered the cheeseburger which was very good and flavourful. I didn’t realize that the brunch menu didn’t have sides you could order to accompany the burger, so was surprised when the burger came solo on a side place. I asked if I could order fries and the server said yes, so I got those and they arrived with some burger left. The plate of fries was good and more than enough for 2 or more people to share! It would be ideal to have option to have mini order or fries of home fries, or a small side salad to go with the burger. Will be back to try the regular menu!

Good to see the venue re-opened on the site of formerly known as Scallywags, which has been “spruced up” under new management. The size of the crowd on the roof deck one recent summer Friday evening bodes well for its renewed success as a popular destination in the transforming Yonge + St. Clair ‘hood. Best of luck to them!

Large, protected, well-ventilated roof top patio. The indoor part of the restaurant on the main floor was not open which made us feel confident about any other COVID measures Shenanigans was taking. The menu was somewhat limited, offering better than average pub food. The service was excellent. Will return.

They have the best happy hour special this summer with $5 drinks from 4-6 or 10-close. A great place to start your night, and newly opened. One of the rare rooftop views in the northeast side of the city, and has a fully covered roof installation so you can go rain or shine. Love this place for the beginning of girls night. They have a pineapple gin fizz cocktail that’s really tasty!

I was looking for a last minute patio to go to with my girlfriends and 2 other friends and we saw Shenanigans. We were able to get the time we all wanted and saw the menu had a good amount of options. When we got to the restaurant we had to go to the patio which was on the third floor. The patio was covered but it was nice and open letting a lot of light in. The food was amazing and priced very well!! I would definitely recommend to friends and family!

The food is nothing special, the drinks are a bit overpriced. The patio is amazing, but the clientele seems to mostly be drunk 20 year olds screaming. The staff were amazing and so accommodating, but that is not enough of a reason to return.

Some patrons were drunk (in the early evening) and being disruptive/loud. The servers only encouraged them.
If you plan on bringing your family, or value being able to hear other people at your table, I would not recommend it.
The patio is actually almost completely covered, so it is not really outdoor dining.
Food was OK, slightly over-salted.
