McVeigh's TorontoMcVeigh's is the place where everyone lines up for miles to get in for a drink on St. Patrick's Day. The rest of the year it gets by with basic pub grub and weekly live music from Irish bands.

It also served as the Irish Pub in both Boondock Saints movies.v

It also has one of the friendliest staff around. Kitchen staff came to our table and offered to make us anything we wanted...settled for a burger.

I can't believe people think this is a true Irish pub, its an absolute kip. It's an embarrassment to Irish people. It's filthy, overpriced and the food is sick! The people who drink there are all creeps !!

This place is great! I've been here twice, and had a lovely time. They pour wine generously, and it's not overpriced. The food is secretly really good too! Homemade fries are a must.

Smells like a urinal puck, food is best left toa braver soul (or a more suicidal one), the patrons are all three sheets to the wind, but the Guiness is great.

Just like a pub in Ireland.

The remarkably old and frail man is stronger than he looks and firmly got me out the door without a bruise or insult.

This is a "Home Bar"... no fine dining or attitude.
The same bartender was great when I went back years later.
Service was exceedingly humble and we had the best Scotch at good prices too.

I look forward to a long, quiet afternoon of fine scotch and good cameraderie.

One of the best Guinness around. No attitude. A great place for a session.

This Bar owner is one of the most successful in the city and around over 50 years.
One has to admire and appreciate this mans hard work, dedication and the fact he is a true Northern Irish gentleman from Ireland. He deserves much respect from the Irish people with in Toronto and never a more honest, direct and hard working individual.
Sincere respects to you and your family Mr Mc Veigh.
I have enjoyed your company and humor at your establishment.

My dad used to drink here, and he's a northern Ireland boy. He's visiting in two weeks and we are definitly coming for a pint.
