Meet the owner

Around 2010, siblings Kyle, Glen and Chloe Kristenbrun were tossing around concept ideas for a bar they wanted to open above their successful breakfast restaurant, Over Easy on Bloor Street. They wanted something that reminded them of a classic North American tavern. “We went around the U.S. to New York, Chicago, San Francisco and New Orleans to get ideas and research what we considered to be in the same vein,” says Kyle. “We checked out the food, the design and décor, and we came up with our concept from that.” That idea resulted in the opening of Museum Tavern in July of 2012.

    I had Keevan serve me at the bar and he was absolutely phenomenal! I will definitely be returning for his exceptional service.

    I love this place. Great atmosphere, no loud music or annoying TV's, friendly service. Killer drinks, properly poured beer and probably the best Cheeseburger in town (+ great other choices of food too, that is overall amazing) Would always recommend!

    Staff members were terrific. Offered us an indoor table when it began to rain on the patio, but then helped us over to a dry table when we decided to stay outside. Food was stellar as always. Servers were helpful with food selection, as well.

    I think the burger was delicious but much smaller than expected. Maybe in a good way for someone like me! Good drinks and great service. I would go back for sure!

    Amazing food!! And their tofu "burger" is a great twist on a regular veggie burger. Plus they have sour beer, which is a huge plus.

    Wait staff was great. My chopped salad was also great. It is noisy and difficult to hear my lunch friend. What is missing is a great latte. I cannot understand why you do not include espresso coffees on your menu.

    The meal was delicious, and the service was very good. My husband loves the fish and chips which is why we went. I enjoyed the duck confit. When we got the bill, we were happily surprised to find out that dessert was on the house, because it was our anniversary. A nice touch!

    We had high expectations for their cheeseburger since it had many positive reviews online. The cheeseburger was okay. The fries was phenomenal though! Good place for a quick bite.

    Museum Tavern is one of our favourite restaurants in the Annexe. It's a great spot to meet family because we have 2 students at the University of Toronto and a young working professional also in Toronto. It's easy to get to with the TTC. We enjoy sitting on the patio. The food is good and well priced. The service is professional and attentive but not intrusive.

    The occasion was a reunion with a childhood friend prior to a concert. The childhood friend was from Yarmouth NS, so when the reply to "is the lobster" fresh was, "Yes, it's flown in from Yarmouth NS" we all joyously ordered the lobster rolls which were wonderful. Very nice dinner, nice memories of Yarmouth too.
