Adequate pub. No complaints.

Frequented this particular pub thrice, and each time a 3/5. Service is good, food is adequate, beer is cold enough, and the atmosphere is exactly what you would expect. Good enough overall. There are few other large pubs in this area, so I shall return.

AUTHENTIC IRISH PUB. VERY BUSY PLACE. TOO NOISY!

The first thing i notice when i walked into POGUE MAHONES was that all the waitresses wore plaid thigh-length skirts - i am glad i arrived here! It is a kind of dark place with dark wood all over. Also it is a very busy and noisy place, i can barely hear myself talking. The waiters/waitresses were very attentive as they came back every once in awhile to check on our needs a few times. All of our food arrive fresh and hot. My coffee was fresh and scalding hot, it came in a generous sized mug too. My seafood chowder was hot and it was very creamy, not bad! My chicken wings were satisfactory, no complaints here! Okay now my Grand Spuds with irish-poutine-style sucked!!! The fries had melted cheese and gravy on top, but the freshcut homemade fries, tasted totally off. My friend who had fries in his dish also complained about the fries tasting YUCK! My other friends were very satisfied with their dishes (fish n chips, liver n onions w mashed potato, chicken pot pie w mashed potatoes, jambalaya). Good service, satisfactory food, unpleasant atmosphere (too noisy)... would i visit again? i dont think i will. Overall satisfactory!

Good, but not great. You don't need a reservation for sunday morning - place was empty when we arrived at 11 AM. We had to keep asking for coffee and water refills, food was okay.

our server dropped a plate of food when she reached our table but was diligent to clean it up right away (not her fault)! however, we were there from 2:30pm until about 4:30pm on Victoria Day Monday and the atmosphere was too quiet and unexciting. food was ok but not extraordinary - fries were oily, soggy and unsalted... burger bun was extremely dry and my top bun cracked in half while holding the burger and it fell apart. the build-your-own-Caesar bar was fantastic and a great idea!!

Table server was amazing, apologized for one meal not arriving til we inquired and we were all finished remaining meals. She spoke to manager for bill adjustment. The atmosphere was extremely loud -DJ music! Difficult to have conversations. Otherwise good menu now with renovation completed.

Excellent steak frites, although the fries that day weren't perfect (a bit old--had perfect fries the week before). My colleagues seemed to like their lunch as well--great lobster club and chicken sandwich. Excellent service.

I am visiting from London. We have an office in Toronto and I work with a lot of Brits who are always looking for new pubs near work. I ended up taking a friend for brunch (and to watch the match) to check out the pub before suggesting it to the crew. We were there by 2:30pm, knowing brunch is until 3pm, but were told they stopped servicing it and the $4 ceasar bar already because they started early. It wasn't stated on your website or twitter or anything so we wouldn't have known. We said that to our server but she just shrugged and said "ok you can still have a $4 ceasar but you have to make it yourself". I was prepared to do that anyway but by that point I didn't want to deal with her attitude. My pitcher of draught cider came with loads of ICE in it which I have never experienced in all my years of drinking cider. If you go to any other pub in the city that does pitchers of cider, An Sibin, Scallywags or even Hemmingways etc. you will never see that! Then our food order came. My friend's was cold and mine came with the wrong sauce. Our server seemed to be in a bad mood so we didn't make a fuss but I guarantee I won't be coming back casually, or with work colleagues. You do have a lot of negative reviews on facebook, yelp and tripadvisor etc. dating back to 2009. it would seem that you would have fixed these issues if you cared about repeat and local customers. it's a shame really cos it's a nice pub in a great location and I when I walked in I thought it would be a great place for our big group to watch the Euro final... sorry nope

I always meet my friend at Pogue Mahone. We always order Halibut Fish and Chips, my friend has salad on the side and for me instead of French Fries, I have Sweet Potato Fries. Service is always good with sweet smile of the servers and nice atmosphere but sometimes it can be noisy that is why I always choose the tables at the back.

It was a really busy lunch time but our server was able to give us plenty of attention - most of the time. Our fourth guest was late in arriving and it took a little while to get him his beer but other than that, it was good.

We went to Pogue Mahones for after work drinks. The server was nice enough (took our order and was chatty) but didn't offer the whole table water. Also we weren't impressed by the small over priced pitchers of beer. The pitchers are poorly designed and make it difficult to pour out a drink without spilling. Food was also overpriced for what it was.

Everything was great. I was thrilled to be able to book on line. Everything was setup for us prior to our arrival. Staff attended to us promptly, in a friendly and couteous manner. The food arrived quickly as well, which helped us keep the lunch within office lunch hours and get us out in time for afternoon meetings. Thanks!
