Fantastic brunch, great view and live music all create an awesome atmosphere. I’ve been here dozens of times and keep bringing all my friends and co-workers. Keep up the great work! P.S.: the boardwalk breakfast is amazingggg!

The Hippie Bowl was amazing, so please keep that one! The apps (buffalo cauliflower and guac) were delicious as well. Whoever was in charge of the music that afternoon was also amazing. Great work!

Me and my coworkers decided to do a team lunch on a Thursday at The Goodman due to the prime location and beautiful patio. Upon being seated, we were sitting for 25+ minutes in the scorching heat without even being brought out waters for the table. That was the first red flag. My coworker had to go and flag down a server to come and take our orders, and the person she flagged down was not even unapologetic, but rather said that our table is not his. When going for a team lunch with 10+ people and choosing where to spend your money, this is unacceptable service. Once out server came 30 minutes into us being seated, you would think the service would be amazing but that was not the case. I would not recommend The Goodman especially considering the fact that the establishment wasn't even busy, so the service could have been much better.

The only drawback was the limited menu, which seemed to be Brunch and most dishes featured eggs. I don't do eggs, so not much to choose from. Otherwise, great!

Great, friendly service. Setting especially on the deck is great. Food is acceptable quality. That said, Goodmans is our "go-to" place especially for Sunday brunch while we live close by on the Toronto waterfront.

Few items on the menu were not available. For example Elk Experience burger that we ordered, we were told that they out of Elk, one of the beer on tap from the drink menu was not available as well. Fish and chips usually comes with coleslaw salad, but not at this restaurant. When we ask to replace french fries with any vegetables, we were told that they out of vegetables and if we want we can get a salad for extra money. This was our first and last time at this establishment.

We were very impressed. Our server was friendly and went over and above to give us great service for example by giving the birthday girl a sample of ciders before she ordered and also a birthday cake slice that was large and beautifully presented. All of us live in the condo next door but have not been to the Goodman Pub. The couch setting was perfect for a group of friends and we will be back!

Disappointing meal that was only made worse by the bad service. The food was dry and lackluster. We had the avocado toast, which was overpriced and bland. The avocado did not seem fresh and was watery. The breakfast place was dry and not seasoned. Additionally, the waitress never came by to fill up our water and seemed to be chatting with her coworkers instead of attending to the customers. The view of the restaurant is gorgeous, but the place is so disappointing. For a nice meal with a good view, Amsterdam Brewhouse is a much better option.

I rated the Service as 4star because when I made dinner reservations 6:30pm on internet for 4 adults I dropped by earlier Fri Jly 27 at 3:30pm asking for a table outdoor again with glass panels incase of rain outdoors as we really wanted to dine outdoors. I asked the young woman outside 3ish does she need my name or anything she said no it's fine I told her i had dinner reservations booked under my full name she said we should get table I showed her outdoors glass covering at 6:30pm. when we arrived the server at no fault of her own apologized that the table I wanted was taken and gave us table outside exposed with no umbrella or anything. however as I suspected 5min later we had to move indoors because it started raining. Which again is why I asked earlier that day for the table with covering as I suspected it may rain. Other than that glitch I find if you confirm it verbally with someone and even show the table PLS DON'T CONFIRM YOU GUARANTEE this and have them show up and the table is not available. the food was good and the server was good. I did tip 20% for her and I know it wasn't her fault the young gentleman when we went indoors (Dont know his name he's early 20 Asian) was very kind and provided us a table still facing water area . He made a big difference in our experience.

The server was nice and accommodating, however I felt she didn't check in with us on refills and food. The food was awful. Eggs were either overcooked or undercooked. It was too much for the little amount of food we got. The food is usually dry.

The service was excellent. They accommodated our request to change tables when a better table became available. The food was OK - you are really paying for the location on Lake Ontario.

I’ve heard mixed reviews about the food but still decided to try it out myself. I was disapointed in my food, there was no flavour, not even salt. There were 8 of us who are 6/8 did not like there food. I added chicken for $6 and got MAYBE 2oz worth of chicken that was chopped up dark and white meat. Definitely not worth it. I would go back for just drinks, loved my sangria but not for food.

This place sucks. Food was nasty. Servers were clueless. I had read other horrible reviews but thought I would give it a chance. I'm surprised management hasn't made changes given all the bad reviews but I suppose they are kept afloat by tourists. It's a shame. This place could be great.

Nice place with great food. However, table wasn't rready and we were 5 mins early and was dead! Service was slow despite quiet and lots of staff. One guy only took partial desert order and we had to ask for rest! Also menu said half price wine until 6 - got charged full amount. When I came back the next day to ask, they said from 3. This was NOT clear online or on menu.
