  • Best nachos in the city, hands down!

    We were visiting Bryden's before we even moved to the neighbourhood and absolutely fell in love with it. The food and beer is great, affordable, and always fresh. The service is super friendly and cool. The atmosphere is very comfortable. To that end, we started looking at houses in the vicinity of Bryden's (you cannot underestimate the value of a good local, my friends)

    In the end, we bought a house at the other end of BWV, but we still make the walk regularly because once you taste the perfection of nachos with pulled pork, you can't have nachos anywhere else.

    We've also had the wings, which are good, but I wouldn't say the cajun wings are the best of the bunch ... they are pretty dry. Go for the "with attitude" or straight up Red Hot sauce variety. The accompanying blue cheese sauce is chunky and good!

    Great pub, cool vibe, affordable suds and awesome food. Make it so!!!!

  • I have been coming here for years. Always good here. Great pub food, great twists on pub food, great not-so-pub food. Service is spot-on. Even the cocktails are served well. Prices are good.

    Awesome place for drinks. Cozy seating available. Customers are friendly to each other. I'm lucky to be within walking distance to this place.

  • Order: wings, nachos, salads, other apps

  • Food was great, ambience was great. It was a Friday night, and it started getting a bit busy with people out for the night, so service slowed down a bit after we got our food. Still good though.

  • Order: For me a spinach salad with mushrooms on it that was delish! My brother and his friend got a burger and wings and said they were great, too.

  • Ordered wings cajun, honestly the best I've ever had. Nachos are huge homemade chips and tons of options for toppings including pulled pork. Great beer selection and pretty good wines too. Like the patio and service is freindly. If your in west end check it out.Bloor and Jane.

  • Order: wings nachos pasta

  • The Cajun wings were very dry and we asked for more sauce, the waitress took over 10 minutes to bring us our sauce. The waitress was VERY rude. My friend had the Thai Chicken and it was undercooked and she was sick the next day! I would NEVER go there again!!

  • Order: For a starter we had the Cajun Wings, For the main course we had a stirfry and the Thai chicken.

  • I was there with a friend for St.Paddy's day, and it was awesome. I got a burger and fries, and my friend got chicken wings. (Pretty standard pub fare, but they had a lot of other more exotic stuff, too.) Buddy said wings were great, and the burger was excellent. Best in the area for sure. Fries were tasty, too. Had some sort of spices added to them that "zested" them up. Yummy! Also they have a great selection of imports, but as I said, it was St.Patrick's Day, so I stuck to Guinness. I am actually in the pictures that they put up on their site, so check it out! http://www.brydens.ca/gallery_stpat3.htm

  • Order: Party of two, 1 ordered wings, I got a cheeseburger, drank a pint of Guinness with multiple Guinness chasers.
