Great Beer
The Loose Moose is a lively bar in downtown Toronto favoured by locals and out-of-towners since 1989. Their fondness may have something to do with its beer selection. After all, with over 65 varieties on tap, repeat visits are kind of a given, especially for lovers of Canadian craft. Beer isn't the only thing we have to brag about. With inventive plates, generous portions and the cleanest taps in the city, this is a bar you’ll likely come back to — plan or no plan.

It was great! We had many drinks. Server was good, until it was "tipping" time. We tipped $10, no one is obligated to tip more. Server embarrassed me and said this is what I get for giving you a good service? I was surprised and took out a 10 and gave it to him and left. I hope that server doesn't work there anymore. I believe his name was Jonathan? (Caucasian guy with white/greyish hair) People need to understand that it isn't mandatory to tip. This is tough times and these businesses should be happy they are getting customers. I would visit again because we enjoyed the food and the drinks. But surely hope that people like that who are getting paid $14.50/hr plus making tips realize that people are NOT obligated to tip. They want to. Period. I hope the establishment educate their servers a little better.

Awesome. So great to be back. People need to get in here and start packing the place. Great food, great service, awesome booze. One of our go to places that got hurt by this Pandemic crap and with no patio they had to close. Go support and grab some beers and wings damn it.

Made the reservation on Open Table a week before trip to Toronto for a Trade Conference. I added two more colleagues during the Conference and an additional one two hours before our reservation. The ages of our party ranged from 30-62 years. We had an amazing time and I personally enjoyed my “smoked” old fashions (been on the search for them since I arrived in Toronto). We enjoyed appetizers of Fried Pickles, A Pound of Fries and 2 types of wings. Entrees were delicious. I personally had the Nashville Chicken.

It was really really loud and difficult to have a conversation. I think the reason was the music was so loud so people had to shout to talk to each other over food and that rose the level of noise. As people left, the noise level reduced. If the place would just lower the music level, I think the experience will be much better.

10th December in a row we’ve come to Toronto for a Leafs game as our Anniversary present to ourselves AND it’s the 10th time we’ve been to the Loose Moose for dinner. Wouldn’t have it any other way! Love the food, service and atmosphere! Merry Christmas & we’ll see you next year! Cheers!

Very good experience, service was tops too. Only comment is my diet Coke had no gas in it, probably being first served of the day. I'm sure they would have changed it, but I didn't think to ask at the time. But I always liked Loose Moose, especially the latter-day incarnation with the impressive beer selection. On that score, my only suggestion is to see if Guinness would send you its outstanding Foreign Export Stout on draft. That would be a coup!

We were very impressed with everything. The restaurant has been open for years, but it was very clean, modern and the menu offerings were plentiful and up to date. Great beer offerings and I appreciated the 2oz size. All of our food was very good and was served in an appropriate time. Our waitress was very friendly and professional, some of the best service we have had recently. We will be back.

Went in for the Leafs home opener and they have stopped playing the commentary during the game and keep the music blasting. Completely changes the atmosphere for the game, it kind of unsuited to have Taylor swift blast during a hockey game, completely takes away from the whole experience. Several people were asking why the music was still playing and staff seemed helpless. Always loved going here for games but this whole music thing might affect that. The food also seemed to take a dive. I really hope this was a one off!

After we finished eating ordered more dri k's and desserts. Service very slow,finally brought drinks didn't clear away dinner dishes.
Dessert was extremely slow coming, finally cleared dishes as I had piled them up myself!

We enjoy going to the moose before the blue jays game night. The food is always delicious and a good value. I love the many beer selections especially the Kona Larger. We have been at the Kona Brewing Company in Hawaii. This brings me back to the big island.
Staff is always friendly and we love the menu selections.

Food was biggest disappointment.

Waitress brought flat pop & when I asked to replace with water she said the “carbonation machine isn’t great here” - why not say that up front?

Great venue. The food was delicious. The only negative for me was the noise level. I had difficulty hearing my friends conversation without yelling. Regardless, I will be happy to go back.

We were sat at a table that was waitressed by the bartender. BAD IDEA!! We waited to even be asked about drinks... she took the order and quickly ran back to the bar. No questioning if we wanted food. Came back 10 minutes later with our drinks and started to walk away when I had to stop her to ask her for an appetizer. By the time this comes out or drinks are empty, she grabs the empty glasses and walks away without asking about refills. Needless to say we asked for the check and went next door to eat.

Initially I really liked the restaurant based on its atmosphere for the game. Our Hostess was amazing and so sweet and always came by to ask us if we needed anything. However our mood was completely ruined during the game when the 'manager' I believe, white guy dark hair skinny, comes up to us and says he'll kick us out if we don't order food again since we do not drink. One, I understand you need to make revenue during a game specially if there's a line outside his point could have been made in a more respectful manner. Second, how am I supposed to order anything without a menu? He did not bring one he didn't ask us if we needed anything as soon as he approached us, nothing. Most bars ask you if you need anything and provide a menu and then asked you to order due to targets they need to meet for the night etc. Fire your manager and promote the hostess that was serving us. She was so professional and kind and we absolutely loved her four game six night. Mood killer during first period that manger sucks I should have just went to my reservation at Scadabush next door.

A great vibe to catch up with friends and an even better place to catch the game with your friends. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and a decent food menu steps from Union is almost a no brainer. Loose Moose has your game or social needs ready to go

Found it very average. It was our Anniversary and we made a reservation and got put beside the servers drink station where it was very noisy. My seat looked out a window at the construction. Not a great experience.
